you can only look good if what you're wearing fits the context of your environment.  unless you are the professor giving the lecture, you'll just look like a tool wearing a suit and tie to college/uni; even if everything fits, is properly matched, and of decent taste.

It really doesn't. The name is a misnomer.

Someone on here once wrote that people under the age of 25 should never be made to wear suits. I'm starting to agree.

A lot of people in college are figuring out how to be adults (what this says about culture is another conversation--I have little room to judge as I was a mess in college), and if wearing a suit inappropriately is part of that process so be it. It's going to look forced and the best you can hope is that they broaden their perspective, their sense of self evolves, and they look back and laugh/cringe.

I completely and 100% disagree. A suit has its place, though. I wear a suit when I go to the orchestra or ballet, or other formal events. I also wear a suit when I am going to a very nice restaurant, even when it is not required. A suit has no place in a college classroom, though, unless it is some special type of class where you are formally presenting something in a professional, business context, or meeting with industry professionals.

You just need to know the context of the situation you're going into, and keep in mind that it's better to overdress than to underdress, as you can dress down accordingly.

if wearing a suit is a replacement for actually learning how to be an adult, it's a problem - and in many cases i think this happens. we can see how wearing a suit makes him feel better than others, which is counterintuitive to actually being mature. but to be fair, many people go their whole lives without really developing much maturity.

The only person I've seen pull off something more formal is my friend and he does it well, but he typically wears what you would find in the streetwear blazers and suits thread (whatever it's called...). But he's definitely not wearing an entire suit..

The images in here are concerning... but what is more terrifying is the writing.

post #447 of 1048

the writing TOTALLY makes it worse! anyone can post a bad fit. anyone can post a series of bad fits on a blog. but writing about them like they are fantastic and everyone should be taking notes is another thing entirely. that's absolutely what qualifies all of these blogs as far as I am concerned.

 

I guess some fits are SO bad that in and of themselves they make the blog terrible, but the ones with writing are at least twice as funny to me.

I am kind of surprised no one has mentioned the supportive comments on said terrible fashion blogs.

A la...

The only thing more dope than double shirting is triple shirting.
