Just for fun, post what school you go / went to and how / when did you become interested in clothes?

I'll start: I'm going to FAU (Find another university, uh, I mean Florida Atlantic University) and I became interested when a friend of mine gave me a copy of the "A Gentleman's Guide" by Bernhard Roetzel for my birthday, 6 years ago.

Just a curiosity of mine, I noticed that many people on the forum are still going to school. People whom enjoy sartorial matters at this age are quite rare, I should know: I'm only 21.

Jon.

I graduated from THE University of Oklahoma in Fall of 2001 with a degree in photography. Â I became interested in clothes when I looked in my closet and realized that entering the work/dating world would require a much better wardrobe. Â I learned a lot about how to dress from my Dad, and found that the better I dressed the better I felt and the better I was treated. Â And although my salary is very low (that's the drawback of photojournalism, but I LOVE my job), I am able to find great sales and get good clothes for a fraction of retail. Â Micromanaging of funds and buying smart has allowed me to put together a very good wardrobe, even though I usually just wear jeans and a collared shirt at work due to the very different environments and situations my job puts me in. But that makes the times I do get to dress up all that more enjoyable.

There was a post concerning this topic awhile back...
CHECK IN THE lifestyle archives.

If I remember correctly, the majority of the older, Oxxford/Brioni/Kiton wearing contingent were lawyers of some variety, while the twenty-somethings were students (a lot of business majors and pre-law).

FWIW, LA Guy are you a MD of some type?

I am a student at San Diego State University, and will hopefully be graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art with an emphasis on Graphic Design in two years.

My increasing interest in clothing is proportional to increasing in my pay checks. Before I got a good job, I never spent money on clothing, but as I have more disposable income, I have found myself spending a higher percentage of it on bettering my style.

I'm *almost* done (knock on wood). Despite the tech background, I'll be doing some consulting work in DC before going back to school for MBA or JD.

I'll admit to my lowborn public university education:

University of Kentucky, BA History
University of South Carolina, MA History

I did spend a summer at Exeter College, Oxford.

I started learning more fashion as a natural extension to learning more about art and design, I suppose.

BA from Emory University
MBA from Duke University.

Ranjeev, if you don't mind me asking, why are you considering MBA after law school?

Wow, we have some extremely well educated people on this board. For someone applying to university next year, this is all very interesting.
