Your suggestion that he "be...
Go with your shirt, tie, and blazer combo. But I'd switch the black trousers out for charcoal.

I just think it's silly to, as you put it, stay within your "safe harbor" zone in college. It's a time for self-exploration. How far is too far is for each person to decide on their own. I think saying with any degree of certainty that something will happen (e.g., being labelled a "weirdo") is ridiculous. Some people will think that sure, but except for pint-sized colleges, I really don't see that happen. At my school, there are of course plenty of people who dress in...

#2 is beautiful! Couldn't have been a 36?? Oh well.

I'm similar measurements here. 5' 6" and 130 lbs. I find most American-styled jackets are far too big. My European-cut ones (Corneliani, Canali, etc.) fit very well after minimal alterations, though. H&M size 36 is slim enough to fit off the rack. If you ever get tired of shopping in the boys section, my suggestion is try more European cuts. At least that's what works for me.
