    Does anyone actually wear a suit everyday to university? And carry a briefcase alongside with it. Students I mean, not staff.
    One of the students in my course used to turn up in full tribal gear sometimes.

    If you're really posh, you'll roll into lectures in your dressing gown and slippers just to show the common man how little you care for his opinions.

    I like to dress somewhat smart when going to study, I haven't seen many people in suits and briefcases, except for a group on one day, but I say you wear what you wanna wear at the end of the day (as long as it's compliant with university policy and decent), and not fully suited but a relaxed kind of tie and suit is a good looking piece of clothing, backpack is much more comfortable than a briefcase though,I'd prefer a backpack but wouldn't mind a suit as long as you're not uncomfortable

    I'd never wear a suit but I'd be tempted to go in wearing a ball gown or some sort of elegant evening dress.

    Some people totally do that (I’ve heard and seen at my uni too). I REALLY don’t see why people judge based on this; some people just like looking smart.

    Ive seen one and the other. Suit was from being interviewed, so fair excuse imo.
    Briefcases have always thought they were a bit impractical, especially with laptops, then I think they are a rarity..

    I do have one guy in my lecture class who wears a suit and carries a briefcase. He's an international student and very mature (like 50 years old) but apart from that I've not seen younger people

    A guy did this on the very first lecture of my masters. Full suit, tie, briefcase, etc. The next day he turned up wearing a hoody and the suit and briefcase were never seen again.
    It's possible he felt too out of place, I know when I started at college I begged my mum to let me wear a tracksuit as I was the only one on the course wearing jeans and a formal shirt.

    So don't keep replying to it.

    And then unwatch it.
