I wear trackies alot, not to the 'chav' scale but I imagine I'll be labelled that as soon as I walk in to a lecture theatre, just wondering how much I'm gonna stick out?

You should take pride in your appearance though. Wear some brogues, cords and a nie Turnbull and Asser shirt with a cashmere jumper.

I do take pride in my appearance, just because I wear sports clothes, doesn't mean I don't look smart; obviously it depends what environment I'm in but its not like my clothes are dirty or creased or anything.

It depends on the context you wear them, if you come into a lecture threatre with a base ball cap £200 Nike trainers, trackies and a sports t-shirt you might stand out. If you just have tracckie buttoms on then nobody is really going to notice espeicaly if their subtle. Subility is the key to not looking like a scally.

I stopped wearing them at university simply because nobody else does, so I felt like I stood out a little bit, but it was probably all in my head. Just wear what you want, if people are thick enough to think you're a scally becuase of it then they should not be in university.

I used to have to wear them all the time when i had a medical condition preventing from wearing tight jeans. I do wear trackies/combats but not very often, 95% of students seem to wear Jeans though.

I think because my university is in scallyville people make more effort to not look like one,

Lol, fair enough.

At college I tend to wear jeans or combats partly to distinguish myself from the hoards of hatchies as we call them but also because I prefer them in terms of functionality and considering I keep pens, phone, wallet and mp3 player in my pockets trackies aren't that practicle.

Most people are too asleep in their lectures to care what anybody else is wearing

Lol this is funny how much speculation has gone on regarding the wearing of tracksuit bottoms in lectures and the dramatic undertones of whether said wearer is a chav. In my humble opinion wear what you like within reason and care less what others think. On another note, there's a difference between looking sporty and like a chav. I'm sure you'll agree.

I wore trackies a lot at 6th form, mainly because I was always active, doing something too sporty for jeans.

I never used to like jeans anyway. When I started uni i wore mainly combats and american football tops. But once I was with my girlfriend she sorted me out, as women tend to do. She got me wearing jeans and 'tops'.

I don't really care what I wear, fashion and dress sense mean nothing to me. I don't spend much money on clothes, and just wear whatevers nearest. Usually go to uni in jeans now, but I'm not ashamed to be seen in trackies if I have a reason for wearing them.

I think that's the significant point.
