I'm sorry, probably the fact that I'm posting into a style forum that I used to frequent as a graduate student might sound like I'm being superficial and not dedicating every single minute of my life to my new station in life. I totally understand that. The only defense to that accusation I have is that I like to dot my i's and cross my t's. Attention to detail does not have to be confined to your work. It's a way of looking at things; a curse, if you will.I was just...
Hello, As a new faculty member used to dressing like a graduate student, I would like to dress more according to my new "authority" position.

Is there anything unfashionable about wearing white sneakers? or are only white tennis shoes the problem? I've always heard "never wear white sneakers". Why is this suddenly OK if you're wearing Common Projects?
I am completely lost. I have a cool brown military-style jacket, but I don't know what to put underneath it.

White-and-blue striped shirt? shirt of another shade of brown? Would black jeans work? or blue jeans?
