I'm in my second year studying law, and I wear sport coats all the time. I would suggest you start with a 2-button navy blazer, then get some tweed or flannel. The key to looking good in a blazer or sport coat is the fit. If it's slim and fits you well, it will look sophisticated and modern and will certainly set you apart from the professors (as well as all the poorly dressed students). Take a look at these - .

What would you recommend as a first pair (or two) of mid-range but good quality leather shoes? I was thinking Crockett and Jones or Church's.
Worry not. The Prince of Wales can often be seen pulling his cuff out of his jacket sleeve (albeit discreetly, of course), so you're not alone.
I really like Polo Ralph Lauren chinos, they fit well and they are generally slim. Brooks Brothers are quite good too, but they never seem to have my size. As for cheaper brands, I had a pair of navy Gap chinos which were of surprisingly good quality and the fit was great. I heard United Colours of Benneton has some nice chinos as well, but I can't confirm this.

I suppose if you're expecting very heavy snow and you're planning to be out in it often, they are good. Having said that, I have something against big military-style boots with thick soles unless you are in the military or need them for outdoor sports. But it appears that your question is about utilitarian, not aesthetic, value. So while I find the second ones better looking, I think the first pair will be better for heavy weather. I had a similar pair once, and it took...
Or, you could try a cashmere cable crew-neck sweater (a la Polo Ralph Lauren) with the pinstripe pants. I think that could work.
1. Navy chinos or corduroy pants, as mentioned above (though I don't have much experience with Hunter Green or dark rust). 2. I have a similar problem, and I always find that matching different patterns with pinstripe pants creates a very crowded look. Perhaps try a shirt with a plain sweater vest? 3. Dark monkstraps will also work wonderfully well with light coloured pants, in my opinion. Try white linens, white jeans, or light chinos if you're going for a casual look. 4....
Acidicboy: I'm in the Republic of Georgia for several months. They actually have a seemingly genuine Zegna store (with prices that are five or six times higher than elsewhere, in addition to several private stores that import 'luxury' clothes from Europe, but again, a Gucci t-shirt will set you back $800+). Thanks for the comments everyone!
It comes down to personal choice. I tend to avoid people who are obviously careless in what they wear, so all my acquaintances are either well dressed or aspire to be. All I can say is - either accept your friends for how they look, or find new friends.
