Hey guys, I will be starting my undergraduate career next September and I was wondering. What do you guys think about this wardrobe layout?
Wardrobe Essentials – Clothes Every Student Needs
10+ T-shirts (simple designs are best, ideally nothing with extremely bold graphics or logos)
5+ dress shirts (missing buttons or rips don’t matter much, so most can come from thrift stores)
3+ pairs mostly-intact jeans or slacks
1+ pair neutral-colored shoes
1 belt (brown and black are the most versatile, or better still, get a reversible brown/black)
10+ pairs underwear (the more you have, the longer you can go between laundries)
10+ pairs athletic socks (ditto)
Wardrobe Options – Additional Styles for the Undergrad
1+ sport coat (for church, dates, presentations, etc.)
1+ letter jacket (if you lettered in a sport – wearing someone else’s letter jacket is strictly for girlfriends)
brown dress shoes
leather sandals or moccasins
decorative belt buckles
At the moment, I currently own 4 polo shirts. 1 is navy and 1 is blue, both are from Tommy Hilfiger. The other 2 polo shirts are from Burberry, 1 is white and the other purple. The Tommy Hilfiger shirts cost around 60$ retail and the Burberry ones are 190$ each.
In my wardrobe, I currently have 1 Levi's dark grey jeans and 1 black cotton chinos from Tommy Hilfiger. I also own 2 cotton v neck sweaters too. My footwear consists of a cheap pair of black dress/running shoes.
I plan on buying 4 white oxford dress shirts, a pair of cap-toe black derbies, 2 heavy woo zip up sweaters, another pair of jeans and a rain coat. What do you guys suggest?
