The Alpha Chapter
Varsity Cardigan

Over the past years, Lines have created a certain uniform apparel look to celebrate their anniversary and passion for their Line.  On a couple of occasions, an Alpha Chapter t-shirt was offered for sale to show our pride in being initiated through The Mother Pearl.  Now, we're taking that to the next level: The Alpha Chapter Varsity Cardigan.  This semi-personalized vintage sweater displays our pride of being part of The Mother Pearl while creating a classy, uniform look for Bros.

The price of the Cardigan is $140 and the net proceeds will go toward restoration efforts for the Dial.

Below are the details of the product and ordering process:

The Product

The Alpha Chapter Varsity Cardigan is a premium, upscale Cardigan that defines vintage style.  Made from 100% knitted cotton, the fabric provides comfort in all climates.  The base color of the Cardigan is dark purple with the accent color being old gold.  Five off-white buttons are incorporated on the front placket for a secure fit.  Two pockets are included to hold any items you may have.  The old school Greek letter applique of Omega Psi Phi (#1 above) is a premium felt badge that adds class to the Cardigan.  The left chest features an embroidered Alpha Chapter badge logo (#2 above) and two lines of customized text (up to 20 characters per line; #3 above) that adds your personal touch to the Cardigan.  The left sleeve features four old gold engineered stripes symbolizing our Cardinal Principles while the right sleeve displays a felt Greek letter "A" symbolizing Alpha Chapter (#4 above).

The price of the Alpha Chapter Varsity Cardigan is $140.  This includes shipping to you.


Items #1, 2, & 4 above are not available for customization.  These are standard features of all Cardigans being produced.  The only part of the Cardigan that is customized/personalized is the two lines of customized text which holds 20 characters per line including any spaces you incorporate.  Please note the following restrictions related to the customized text fields:

  • You are limited to 20 characters per line including spaces;
  • Please be aware of your use of upper and lower case letters.  What you type will be exactly what is embroidered;
  • Please do not use any Greek letters;
  • We are not responsible for any misprints or interpretations base on legibility issues or misspellings on your part;
  • There are no refunds, exchanges or returns (all sales are final).

Please download and complete the following editable PDF order form in its entirety on your computer and return to Jonathan Matthews at  It is highly recommended that you type out the editable PDF order form on your computer versus hand write and return the form to avoid any legibility issues.

The sizes of the Cardigans run from M-5XL.  However, the Cardigans run very small.  So, at minimum, you should order a size larger than what you normally wear.  For Bros planning to order a Cardigan and attending the Charter Day Celebration, sample size Cardigans will be available for you to try on to gauge the appropriate size for your order at the Celebration.  For Bros not attending the Charter Day Celebration, below are pics of me (Flash) wearing a size sample of the Cardigan in size XL, 3XL, and 5XL (hopefully, this can provide you with some type of gauge).

I normally wear a 2XL sweater (size 46L blazer) but have to order a 3XL in the Cardigan being offered.  Please, at minimum, be conservative when you order if you aren't able to attend the Charter Day Celebration and order at least a size larger than what you normally wear.  As mentioned before, there are no refunds, exchanges, or returns (all sales are final) and we are not responsible for you ordering a size that doesn't fit.
