    Are gowns a pain then? I hope you dont have to buy one ... I would refuse lol. Coming from a non selective comp I dont see the point in wearing a gown for formal hall.
    Most people whom I have known at Oxford became quite attached to wearing gowns. And why should the school you went to change your attitude towards them?

    Gown-wearing is just one of those silly, pointless things that you have to laugh about. What I want to know is why do the commoners' gowns have stupid flappy bits on them??? Can anyone help me out with this one??????

    Ummm, a commoner's gown is about £25.

    Scholars' gowns are about £40 I think.
