    if we wear clothes to express ourselves and to project an image to those around us, what then are you trying to say? By wearing clothes that are inapproriate for the time and place what ever you are trying to convey by your personal style is simply replaced with a giant statement of "I Need Attention".

    Think about the person you are or want to be and dress accordingly which means bring your personal style to clothing that is appropriate for the occassion

    Knowing the appropriate attire to wear in various situations is a huge part of being stylish. Obviously, wearing a suit to school is not appropriate. Even if you were able to piece together a great outfit, suit and all, it would still be out of place in that setting... making you look (rightfully so) incredibly foolish.

    ***so important to understand this statement***

    you could probably get killed for doing that in some neighborhoods. wear your suits to church, or get a job that requires you to wear a suit.

    I did, of course I went to a prep school so it wasn't that big of a deal but I think you should do it anyways. You can't go though life basing all of your decisions on what others will do or say, you have to do whats best for you and what you want to do.

    I would have never ever done it in High School but i do do it for college. Then again i dont go to a standard run of the mill university but thus far noone has ridiculed or mocked me in anyway, if anything i get complimented quite often.

    Don't forget to also wear a smoking jacket and velvet slippers during all athletic activity (presumably forced upon you) for highest range of movement while maintaining adequate stylistic aloofness and palpable social tension between you and every single other person there.

    During high school, I remember several people wore sport jackets and trousers to school (jeans were not allowed). Other students thought nothing of this and many of those kids went on to win best dressed of our class.

    I couldnt see a full out suit with tie being worn everyday though (only instances I remember was when there were presentations or mass).

    How fast can you run, and how good a fighter are you?

    The answer to your OP depends on the answers to these two questions.

    Not an award. More like that thing they put in the year book (best dressed, most likely to become presidents, most likely seen in detention, best athlete, etc.)

    People rarely wear suits to college, unless they are business majors. Don't do it. There are ways to dress above the rest while not looking anal.

    Business majors wear suits to class? Why is that?

    1. You obviously don't fit in now or you wouldnt be asking this question. 2. You don't make sinatra look like a hobo because if you did you wouldnt be asking this question. 3. You have no idea what 'style' is, because if you did you wouldn't be asking this question.

    You crave attention, we get it, but don't give your school a reason to beat your ass up.

    Hi, im a 17 year old guy going into his senior year of high school and i would really like to wear a classy suit everyday. but im afraid some people may get jealous or it may seam that i think im something else. and by the way when i wear a suit i make sinatra look like a hobo. that being said to me wearing a suit is like wearing armor. what would you think if u were in hs and someone did this ?

    seriously dude, you shouldnt wear a suit to high school unless there is some debate competition you have to go to or a prom.
    other than that, just be normal.

    and no, you dont make sinatra look lie a hobo. i dont even need photos to confirm this.

    i m sure you look average like any other pimple high schooler in a suit.

    Why would you think? It's not uncommon at real business schools to see the guys dressed up in suits or sport coats.
