“Project Runway” ended its season this past Wednesday, but that doesn’t mean your fashion interests have to be put on pause. Today Doe Library opens up its exhibit exploring the history of fads and duds at UC Berkeley.

Titled “From Plugs to Bling: A Century of Cal Student Fashion,” the exhibit contains a total of 12 display cases and about 100 items. Some of the items–such as the battered plugs–are almost 100 years old.

Head over to the library if you’re feeling like rubbing elbows with Robert Gordon Sproul’s hat, which bears the words “Oski Wow Wow Whiskey Wee Wee,” among other doodads. Maybe you’ll even get some of that university presidential magic yourself … and all for free.
