Yet you support the England team?
Most are from gentile backgrounds and others devout christians. Mike Tindall is a t*sser, but then he is from Yorkshire.
Perhaps they're devout Christians in the way that Mel Gibson is a devout Christian. Christians with a hard edge.
I think it's considered awfully bad form to wear any college merchandise while one still attends.
Not so much bad form as just plain bad taste... Colllege hoodies, scarves and sports gear are quite common, but the tie and cufflinks might just make you look like a bit of a ******
Hmm I disagree, at the end of the day wearing at cambridge is surely less pretentious than wearing them outside, as at least everyone knows (well ish) what they mean in the Cambridge Bubble. I'm sorry, but if people wear obscure football team shirts what's the issue with College paraphanalia? It's not like being a member of a Cambridge College is something to be ashamed of (although the media like to disagree). I hardly see an issue with taking pride in a place you belong to. It's an old fashioned university with traditions, wearing cufflinks and stuff is part of it, it's all fun really, as we know college banter is just that - banter.
Well I'm not talking about wearing it to the pub or anything - just the matriculation ceremony. I'm just trying to find out; if it's so formal I have to wear a suit are there rules I must adhere to such as NOT wearing any college/uni apparel until I've actually gone through the ceremony, two; does anyone else ever do it. For the second one... think back to your own matriculation, anyone?
There are no rules; No one did it.
