Universities like Harvard and Massachusetts Institute of Technology serve as a breeding ground for top talent. Here’s what to bring to fit in.
- In winter, a long camel or khaki coat, for women and men, is a smart outerwear choice. The style might seem old school, but Boston runs at a slower pace than nearby New York (except, that is, on marathon day, also Patriots’ Day).

- But men shouldn’t be afraid to take a cue from London and mix and match patterns in style. While Boston might have led the revolution against British taxation, it never fought against classic British fashion.
