Hey all,
Been meaning to ask this question since the beginning of my fall classes are on the horizon: How do I wear a sports jacket (to class) in University without having myself look like a total tool? What can I mix in with my sports jacket such that my outfits send a clear message that I'm ready for class but I don't take myself WAY too seriously. Thanks!

The most I would do and did was the occasional tweed jacket in F/W with OCBD, unpressed chino, and bucks or loafers. I largely stuck to tees and cardigans and sweaters. In this day and age, anything else will stand out like a sore thumb in the undergraduate environment.

Save the jackets for outside of class.
