    Hi all! Im going to university after this summer and i would just like a basic guideline to how many clothes i should buy.

    This is what i thought i would bring, please let me know what YOU think.

    2 leather jackets (one black one brown)
    5 or so hoodys, 1 grey, 1 white, 3 other colours.
    1 trenchcoat and/or 1 doublebreasted overcoat thingy
    5 buttoned shirts (check Abercrombiefitch to see what kind i mean)
    10 or so Tshirts.
    2 jeans and 3 chinos

    Thats what i want to BUY, but ill have a few tshirts and things that i already have as well.

    EDIT:
    Ill be buying these in the UK so airport baggage is not a problem

    University and course? - I think for medicine, for example, some formal clothes would be required.

    Sounds fine... what about shorts though?

    Where are you going? I made the mistake of packing in late summer when it was lovely and warm, forgetting that Nottingham gets pretty arctic in the winter :rolleyes:. You might want some stuff for just lounging around in - tracksuits and shorts or something.

    Fewer tees, get a polo or two. Also get another pair of jeans at the expense of one of your pairs of chinos. No need for three pairs if you're going to be wearing tee shirts all the time.

    Realising now that the amount of clothes I took was stupid. Do you really need two leather jackets? Take a waterproof or something instead? Trackies/Joggers are a must for any self-respecting uni student.
    Hmmm i really like the hoody and jacket look hahaha, i guess ill limit that to one though!

    Ill be getting joggers/hoody just to lounge about in tbh!

    See ill be wearing proper shirts and chinos more than jeans/tees because ill be a medical student and they have to look a tad bit more presentable (not taking anything away from other majors)

    Haha, I'm a medic too! Just finished first year. Bear in mind you'll need a smart shirt (blue or white are safe) and some dark smart trousers for clinical visits right from week 2, so be sure to bring those too.
    edit - oops, you're in Birmingham. Do you start clinical early too? If so, you'll need to check your dress code - a few of our guys got a major *******ing for wearing polls and chinos in hospital

    Yeah, I couldn't imagine what you've written would've been enough of a variety. Maybe a few casual pairs and one more smart pair of jeans?

    Ah well done! Erm, from what i understand, we start clinicals in year 3 or 4 BUT we do have 10 GP days every year.

    Im sure theyll let us know about the dress code before they let us loose haha. Btw what sort of dark smart trousers are we talking of. Shall i just wear a suit without a blazer? :P

    Sounds like a plan! thanks for the help!

    Btw, as a girl, what places would you reccommend to buy from. I've been looking at abercrombie and fitch but theyre a tad bit expensive!

    You will need a pair of thick black glasses with no lenses, giant headphones, a giant handbad, trainers with different coloured laces, dirty ragged jeans and blonde hair dye with a yellow volkswagen beetle.

    :daydreaming:

    Jokes. Congrats on getting into medicine. In almost a decades time, we will be at eachothers throats trying to get into specialty training.
