    My sixth form had a really anal dress code (suit and tie) that was really strictly enforced. We all resented it at the time, but now I'm at uni I kind of miss wearing it now!!

    Anyone else miss dressing sharp?:confused:

    What job do you want to do? You'll probably be wearing a suit again like that *snaps fingers*

    Enjoy being casual while you can. Uni goes very quickly (so I've heard)

    Yeah I'd imagine I'll probably end up wearing one - and then it'll seem like a drag again!

    Girls dress code was suits or "professional attire" but it was far less enforced than for boys... they could get away with a lot more. For us having a tie loose was a major offence!

    Good old Barney: legend - and I enjoy wearing suit and tie at the moment to college, mainly because its in the city so I feel like I blend in a bit with the business people etc...

    I used to have to wear a suit for sixth form. We weren't allowed trouser suits, but otherwise any skirt suit (so long as it was of a respectable length) was allowed. I loved it! We all used to feel so grown up :p:

    Aw, I used to have to wear a suit for sixth-form, and I miss it.

    The other day I wore a suit for uni (I had a job interview and no time to change inbetween) and I got several very strange looks. Especially since most people were wearing hoodies and were obviously hung-over.

    I liked wearing a suit because i looked so good (had some great looking shirts), but going to lectures in trackies is wayyyy to comfortable to miss.

    I sometimes wear a blazer to lectures.

    But, looking at what other people wear I feel like I'm over dressing. :erm:

    No, not at all.

    I had to wear a suit for 6th form, then when I came to uni I got a part time job at John Lewis so I had to once again wear a suit. I now have a different job that I just wear trousers and a shirt to, but I WISH I could just wear casual clothes.

    Don't get me wrong, there are some VERY nice suits out there, I just don't really like wearing suits. I have absolutely no reason to wear a suit except for weddings and funerals now, so why bother spending lots of money on a lovely suit when it will just gather dust in my closet?

    And you would look like a total douche wearing a suit to uni :sadnod:

    That happened to me the other day actually, went to lectures still in my suit. I had kept my tie on, but loosened it a bit. All I got were comments, either from girls who'd say how "dapper" i looked and would come over and start tightening my tie again, or from guys asking what I was doing still wearing it!!?

    It amazes me how much interest it can provoke!
