    Very pretentious to wear a jumper with "Oxford University" across it, especially out of town, but college wear is alright. Tends to be quite subtle too, with just the badge revealing that try-hard nature of the person it covers.
    Oh please. I have a college hoody because it's comfortable and I'm proud of being part of my college. I don't have a "try hard nature"- if I did, I'd get a Christ Church or Magdalen hoody instead and try hard to pretend I belong to there because they're more famous :rolleyes:

    ...I'd never wear a Cam jumper, unless it was Blues stash (so, erm, NEVER!)...
    potentially another 4 years - am on a mission to take up an obscure blues (hell, even half blue would do!) sport & nab some.. :p:

    otherwise - i have a college scarf, i lost mine & they are rather warm. + it's monochrome, so i don't think it's exactly unstylish or clashes with much. if i had nasty college colours i would have thought twice! orange & burgundy? blurrgh..who is that?!

    then it's just some sports stash - including one with 'CAPTAIN' in whopping great letters on the back..muhaha.. wearing that other than in sport is pretentious i know, but it's very warm!

    i have a sky-blue hoodie with "university of manchester" in huge black capital letters on the front but i love it. its so warm and i think they are cute. i tend to wear it more at home than at uni though. i saw a load of girls get off the train wearing burgundy uni of sussex ones that were horrible, the colour was very off, mine is far better. but i think they are cool, whatever uni you go to, show it with pride. i think i'll still be wearing mine when im 34.

    ive always wanted a Cornell t shirt for some reason. i used to have a t shirt that said "universidade de Sao paulo" as well but ive never been there.

    I'm willing to bet that whatever I'd have said, you'd have claimed it was pretentious, because I go to Oxford. I've had enough prejudice and snobbery levelled at me because of the uni I go to. My friends at home who go to Bath Spa and St Mary's College and Buckinghamshire Chilterns and other unis never seem to get routinely abused as soon as they mention what uni they go to. It's funny how everyone seems to think they know who I am because I go to Oxford. Funnily enough, my friends at other unis never seem to get judged because of their university, and I don't see why I should be singled out, labelled and prejudiced against when I personally have never made assumptions about someone's character or intelligence because of what uni they go to.

    and yeah it is only for people who want to show off about which uni they go to. ok so your hoodie is 'warm' and 'comfy' but point me in the direction of a hoodie that isn't.

    I bet no-one's going to attack you about that, because you're going to Leeds. If you were going to Oxford on the other hand, you'd be hung drawn and quartered because everyone's determined to prove that Oxford students are all show-offs and pretentious and stuck up :mad:

    Hehe, I agree with you there.
    However, i'd be proud to go to Oxford (although I personally wouldn't want to go there!) and wouldn't let it stop me buying a sweater/hoody because of people wanting to have a go at me for it!

    I'm not in the best of moods tonight, so apologies if I'm labouring my point too much. However, with all due respect, I get tired of people making assumptions about me all the time because I go to Oxford (and believe me, it IS all the time), and I get tired of people thinking it's a legitimate prejudice when it's really a prejudice like any other. I wish people would make up their own minds about me rather than assuming I'm some pretentious show-off. If that opinion is "she's a moany cow" then that's their perogative, because it's at least got a basis
