More CM casual than SW&D IMHONah, that's not what I mean...
Look charcoal trousers with a mid-grey jacket! Anyway, this looks great! Personally I'm not a fan of loafers and would have prefered shoes with laces (or perhaps Chelsea boots?), but that's just me....
Yup that's pretty much how kids address their teachers here. Good or bad, I don't know. It's just the way everyone is used to.
Pretty much all the other Scandinavian countries (but Sweden more so than the others) have a long tradition of strong labour unions and a Social Democratic Party that up until the last eight years had been in government pretty much continuously since the 1930s. So the road to egalitarianism has been on the political agenda for the better part of a century. I would never use a title in daily life (not even the Swedish equivalents of Mr and Ms./Mrs are used much at all these...
That special place you take your lover to, to do things lovers do (especially if said lover is not your spouse).

Though they are holders of bachelor-level degrees, history has allowed the use of the title doctor by physicians, however, it is recognised that it is in essence an honorary or courtesy title. .....

But then again Sweden is a very egalitarian society and there was a big language reform in the late 60s where formal addressing was deemphasised and eventually disappeared altogether. The word "ni" (the Swedish equivalent of the German "Sie") was replaced with "du" (same as in...
Like @Claghorn I'm using an old fit as I have no reason to wear tailored clothing this week (and it's too damn hot for anything but shorts and T-shirt, let alone a three-piece). But had I participated I would have gone with something like this: Edit: made pics larger
+1 to sticking out at my department (and most likely on campus as well). But one of the nice side effects of being a fully tenured professor is that I can dress pretty much as I want. And if someone comments on it I can always play the "quirky professor" card - there are certainly enough of them on campus so one more won't make a difference to anyone
