Ascot on Campus?

post #1 of 60
Thread Starter 
Is it appropriate or a good idea to wear an ascot (day cravat) on college campus? (Jeans, spread collar shirt, crew-neck sweater)

Ascot on campus, don't even think about it.


Neckerchief on campus, simple, knotted, tucked in to your shirt. You might be able to pull it off. But if you have to ask probably not.

Depends on which college campus. Eton or Hogwarts, probably yes, Xilin Gol League College, no.

yeah I wear ties on campus and sometimes that's even too much. If you wear an ascot you will be that dick kid with the ascot.

Something Scott Disick would do. I wear ascots on occasion but I would never have worn one on campus. Maybe wear one to a mixer or something, but on campus? No.

This question is chalk full of lulz. Shouldn't you focus more on the true spirit of college: Drinking and getting laid? nod[1].gif

Why would you want to do that? Do you wear ascots at other times? I hate to be negative, but people will think you affected, pretentious, and out of touch if you wear an ascot.

Some few fellows wore ascots when I was up at Balliol 47-odd years ago. I thought they looked rather dashing then and still do. Wear one if you want to, I say. You will certainly stand out from the crowd. Some may think you "affected, pretentious and out of touch," but if you worried a lot about that, you probably wouldn't be considering an ascot anyway.

The only people I've ever seen pull this off in a college environment were were WASPy drunk frat boys, who wore ascots to mixers and parties with the express intention of shouting to everyone "hey, we're all rich dickheads having fun together and the more this annoys you, the happier we'll be".

I think most people imagine they'll look like this:

But everyone sees them this way:
