    You know going on google and typing in 'Eton Uniform' is a lot easier to do than creating a whole thread...

    it depends. the first picture, the one of the boys with the extra black gown are for king scholars (scholarships). the second is the rowing dress (yeah it's a stupid hat). the third and fourth pictures are pretty much the main uniform. there are variations in the dress if you are a school prefect (some get spongebag trousers, or are allowed to wear their own waistcoat). the last button on any waistcoat is never done up.

    not sure why you care but yeah.

    I wish that had been my uniform during secondary school rather than the gay bottle green blazer we had to wear.

    not sure you understand - it's the actual dress code that states the button is never done up.... not some rebellious action, lol.

    You have to wear a gown that identifies you as a scholarship student? Are they ASKING for people to be beaten down?
