The Style Archive, our museum of college hoops style, is in its third season on SI.com. We already have 107 exhibits on display from the past two seasons, and will be unveiling new batches throughout the tourney ...

Exhibits for '08-09: 1-5 | 6-11 | 12-16 | 17-21 | 22-26 | 27-31 | 32-36

Style20 37. Kickingstallionink (Not Kickingstallionsims)
Daniel Hackett, 6-5 guard, Jr., USC
Classification: Ink
Spotted: All season long
Notes: Hackett grew up in Pesaro, Italy, where his father, Rudy -- who's now the Trojans strength and conditioning coach -- played professional basketball. This is a nice, subtle ode to Daniel's his Italian heritage.

38. Midmajorweight Champ
Eric Maynor, 6-2 guard, Sr., VCU
Classification: Custom title belt
Spotted: March 9 vs. George Mason
Notes:
VCU coach Anthony Grant actually had this made for his star point guard, and presented it to him after they won the CAA regular-season title. Maynor rocked it on the floor in Richmond after winning the CAA tournament.

Style19 39. Golden Collars
Purdue Boilermakers
Classification: Nike jersey enhancement
Spotted: Big Ten Tournament
Notes: The Boilers' collars went on steroids late in the season, expanding to this look that veers dangerously close to football neck-roll territory. It seems to bring them good luck, though: They took home the Big Ten tourney title.

40. Taxi Driver
James Harden
, 6-4 guard, Soph., Arizona State
Classification:
Kicks
Spotted:
Pac-10 tournament
Notes:
Harden was rocking this pair of Nike Zoom Lebron VIs -- a New York-specific model called the "Taxi" that came out in Febuary -- while the Sun Devils reached the Pac-10 tourney final. I especially like the checkerboard touch.

Style14 41. Passing Zone
Various Villanova Wildcats
Classification: Dotted-line hosiery
Spotted: Big East tournament
Notes: The 'Cats didn't get one of those custom jersey makeovers from Nike, like Duke and Memphis received, but they are wearing Nike socks with weird dotted lines on the back. You take what you can get, I guess.
