    Hey all.

    Like many peeps in Scotland i've recieved my exam results back today and have been admitted to uni.

    Problem is, i don't have any nice clothes. In fact, i don't even know what good clothes are... Weird eh? Anyways, i'm a biker - moterbiker that is. I like music - i play piano and accoustic guitar. I like films, books, psycology and many other things i don't have time to write down.

    I need advice on what kind of t-shirts, jeans, shoes etc to wear. I
    could stick with my usual kind of style which is quite plain and normal. But i don't know what exactly other people will wear.

    Take a look at these:

    Opinions and recommendations would be helpful.

    Cheers

    I like all of those t-shirts.
    I guess some people will try to 'dress to impress' at the beginning of uni but after a while will get bored and just wear whats comfortable.
    Just wear what you want to wear!

    You'll probably feel uncomfortable if you buy stuff that isn't really you.. No doubt it'll end up just left in your wardrobe and you'll end up in your old style.
    Still, if you want a change then go for it..
    the 80s roots, flourish and edun live shirts are pretty ace but the other three look kinda generic..

    Cool t-shirts with a fitting pair of jeans often looks very good.
    First tee is really cool. I dont have the same opinion of the second. I just dont like dark stuff, and not bikes. Flourish tee not bad, especially if you have a bit lighter hair than normal. Anyway, if you like biker shirts, go for it. wear what you like.

    This with some nice jeans? Lots of different design on jeans. Something like this? http://www.yesstyle.com/en/Product.a...52&section=men

    For shoes. Do you like sneakers, hi-tops, formal-casual?

    Anyways. I bet people will wear lots of different kind of clothes and you should not feel the urge to fit in. Just wear what you thinks look good .

    Them t-shirts - are you for real?

    Dude, there does not need to be a theme, it's uni. Not planet rock! Get yourself some plain polo shirts blue, grey, pink what ever colour with a nice set of blue jeans.

    Go for the unspoken rule of men's fashion and wear only one "statement" item per outfit. So if you're wearing an unusual/funky t-shirt then wear it with a normal pair of jeans and shoes. Likewise if you wear a bright pair of red shoes, wear everything else relatively understated.

    they look fine. i never dressed to impress others, only myself. so some days i am happy to wear old t-shirts and shorts that make me look like a chav-tramp hybrid, whilst other days I wear really nice tommy hilfiger shirts with nice and expensive jacket...

    No need to make tons of effort and change your style unless you really want to. Majority of people I know just wear some form of t-shirt (not normally even really fancy), jeans/shorts and trainers.

    Although if you don't have washers/dryers in your hall/flat and have to go outside to another building, you'll probably find that most people eventually end up wearing whatever is clean while they build up enough laundry to make the trip worthwhile :p:
