I dont wanna sound nasty, but if you go in 500 pound suits just for lectures and tutorials. Your gonna get labelled as a toff and snob and find it incredably hard to make friends.

I thought medics were supposed to have a bit of common sense :rolleyes:

I'm a jeans and flat boots kinda girl, I usually wear jumpers or t-shirts with them and a nice pair of earrings. That's not too dressy is it? Because of my height I can't get away with heels unfortunately
We are, apparently. That's why I found it funny

CW Esq - if you have money to burn, buy an expensive dinner suit if you want to. Most likely nobody but you will know the difference so it's debateable whether there's any point. I doubt you'll have more than a couple of occasions a year to wear it at (I'm at Cambridge and only have 2/3 black tie parties/dinners a year, aside from Boat Club ones).

I don't really have money to burn but I think I will buy myself a mid-end DJ. Surely it is possible to tell a decent DJ from a cheap one. To the other poster I wasn't intending on wearing suits to lectures, but maybe to receptions etc. The most formal I will get will probably be my tweed, but I expect I will be beaten if I wore it.

I definitely need new clothes before uni. I seem to have none. We had a uniform at my 6th form (catholics and their love of rules!), which was fantastic because I didnt need to think about what to wear. Just a white shirt and then assorted pieces of black. But now I actually need clothes. Besides I reckon Mum will buy me some if I go shopping with her before I go. Woohoo! Theres nothing quite like sponging of the folks. I'll be sad when this gravy-train finally terminates.

Btw I definitely couldnt tell an expensive jacket from a cheap one. That kind of thing is meaningless to me. But I guess it depends on the sort of people you'll be hanging around with.

knowing uni students the only thing they can tell the difference between is beer. I really dont think anyone will be paying attention to whether its a cheap one or not.

I always were my suits and ties, its almost a part of me, it depends what you're comfortable in.

Btw, I find it very necesary that girls were the clothes which are made for them (mini-skirts, blouse ..) and men were what is made for them (jeans, t-shirts, jumpers...)

ummm... a bit clichéd? (i don't mean that offensively, it just kind of would be).

i agree with it being a bit clichéd but i doubt you'll be wearing an outfit like that that often ... so wear what you want. if you're going somewhere or attending a formal event where you need look smart go for it. i think it's sexy.

My view is: troll. You know exactly what would happen if you wore that to lectures.

How would you tell? As long as it's not so cheap it's shiny, and as long as it's a proper dinner jacket and not a suit one, I'm sure I couldn't.

Not the checked shirt, and I'm not sure about the red handkerchief, but I'm liking the tweed.

Exactly. Tweed has a reputation for being old fashioned but it can look rather dashing. Just need to wear it sparingly though! Pip pip

Not as dashing as cavalier hats, but that's another story.

That would depend how you're wearing it

Actually I have one very bizarre friend who still dresses as though it's 1910. He has tonnes of Edwardian style clothes, which naturally includes a lot of tweed. Nobody thinks anything of it though - we all know he's eccentric like that and he's not trying to look "aristocratic" or whatever.

Yes. His account of it afterwards was hilarious. Did you know the poor girl who was subjected to it unwittingly?
