Just wondering what kind of jacket is nice to wear around the within school building. I spent fair amount of time walking between classes, etc. Unfortunately, blazer or cord jacket is not the norm on campus. Could you suggest something less formal than that but still looks good.
I usually match shirt with jeans/chino. But the maintenance here sets the A/C very strong, so it is freezing inside the building. I'm thinking this AE jacket, but not sure if its style is too trendy or of dubious quality .... Thanks!
This blazer is WAY too formal to wear inside the b-school. Even professors don't dress like this...
This is definitely more casual that the last one. It could be acceptable, but still too "perfect" and thus not "low-key" profile.
EDIT: I'm talking about college campus in midwest region like Chicago, say for example, University of Chicago. I don't know about schools in New England, but here people dress casual (not as casual as in California). I can wear a blazer or cord jacket to classes, but usually only European international students would dress like that. Otherwise, people are going to ask one of the following four questions:
1) Hey, why you are so dressed up, man?
2) Are you going to a club tonight?
3) Are you going for a date?
4) Are you going for a pre-interview dinner tonight? (I'm in a b-school)
Sorry that I didn't specify my specific circumstances... My goal is too sharp like you gentlemen, but with less high profile (more subtle). Any suggestions? Thanks!
