Yup. This whole thing, from the ridiculous screen name (of a douchie character lifted from a mediocre TV show)  to his outlandishly tacky premise (which basically boils down to I am a wealthy hot-shit future lawyer in training, so I should wear suits even when wholly inappropriate) reeks of 4chan style trolling.

Just...no.

That's probably true, but I'm sure there are actual people who have this question. There are some good replies in this thread, so next time this question comes up, people can refer them to this thread.

...agreed. That's the only reason for why I responded. OP may very well be a troll (I assumed that he was when I saw the thread pop up yesterday), but someone's going to search for this.

You'll have a whole bloody professional lifetime to wear a suit and tie every day. Just get a blazer so you can look posh at an after class event. No need to start doing the elbow patches and everything now. Enjoy your youth.

Agreed and I intended no offense to those who responded, my comment was directed primarily at OP.

I'm less worried about your clothing concerns than I am about the fact that you're prioritizing this issue over sex with college girls.

That reminds me that I have to get my morning suit pressed for my golf outing on Wednesday.

Well played, sir.


Anyway, I do believe OP is a troll(google his name), but for the record, I had quite a few classmates in college(bachelor degree awarding institution) that used to suit up when attending class... some were pompous pricks, some were not... they weren't the wealthy guys, just so you know, rather the conservative ones. No one actually judged them for their suits. It was law though, so perhaps suited individuals find some kind of attraction to this area.

I must admit, I originally started wearing suits because I had to keep my father's reputation. But now I have a grown to appreciate fine suits. Regardless of whether my dad is a billionaire or homeless, the one thing I hope wouldn't change would be my suits. Maybe I phrase the OP wrong. Maybe I should have said "I WILL be wearing suits to college, could you guys give me some advise as to what people might think"

 

Thank you

Oh and for the record, although the screen name maybe be from some "Douchey Character", It still is a legitimate concern. And as Monkeyface said, people will actually search for this, as did I, but I didn't find any threads which directly addressed this issue. I don't wear suits to boast, or to be cocky, or to superare myself over others. I wear them because you feel great about yourself in them, I wear them because the way they look on anyone, a perfectly bespoke suit will transform a man into a mentally and visually, powerful and confident person. 

 

Although some people may not like a man who has money, and dresses to show it. But it's the way I was brought up and it's the way I intend to live by. 

 

Really, as stated by other posters, I shouldn't have started this thread as I have answered my own question, but hindsight is a great thing!

Allen, where/when was this? I don't remember anyone ever wearing a suit around in undergrad (US liberal arts univ, 1999-2003)
