Hey guys,So I'm a college student in Nashville, and like most college students I'm mostly a t-shirt and jeans kind of guy, but I want to dress more like an adult, especially now that I'm graduating…Continue
"Close out stores are my secret. There is a Dilliards close out store here in Baton Rouge. I get Perry Ellis button-ups for $10-$20. I usually have to buy off-season... They Winter overstock in the Spring and the Summer overstock in the Fall."
"Living in the UK, I'm not sure what this store is...are they selling "slight seconds"?
If so, it's a good idea, most slight seconds have imperfections that most people really wouldn't notice, it's a great way to…"
"One of my favorite stores lately is "Thrift". Plenty of brands to choose from at a very good price. Obviously you need to take some time and check for defects, rips, stains, etc. You can even pick up some high end items,…"
"Skip brands go for what fits!
If you have a smart phone you might grab the app WhatsMySize. Put in your measurements and you will know by store and brand what should be close according to brand. BUT you have to try the clothing…"
"If you are building your wardrobe from the ground up, probably best to just get cheap "no frills" sort of stuff to start off with, if it looks smart on, fits well and is of reasonable quality, it is entirely fit for purpose.
"Shirts: LandsEnd, Charter Club
Pants: LandsEnd, Dockers, Dickies
Outerwear: North Face, London Fog
Accessories: Calvin Klein
Charter Club is Federated Department Stores' (Macy's, and...?) store brand. LandsEnd can be…"
"Unfortunately, there is no brand that's always cheap, high quality and stylish. Consequently, you can, as with so much in life, have your pick of two out of the trio of cheap, quick, and good. Since you're on a budget,…"
"For clothes, I like Express (dress shirts), Gap (for jeans), and recently I've become a big fan of LL Bean. Their stuff is top notch, and reasonably priced. Also, comes with a lifetime guarantee.
For shoes, it's worth the investment to buy…"
"A sort of current issues class would be good. Something important that generations are losing is their interest in what is happening around them and understanding what they can do about it. Something else could be useful would be a life lessons…"
"I like the lyrics to this Irish song, regarding patriotism. The title to Tom Clancy's book "Patriot Games" is borrowed from the lyrics.
Come all ye young rebels, and list while I sing, For the love of one's country is a…"
"Then, I perceive you know nothing of patriotism, and it's no surprise given the philosophical bend of the country as a whole. Patriotism has NOTHING to do whatsoever with the government, but to the principles of the country as…"
This is inspired by a post of Muir's about what he wants the kids to learn, but I wanted to make it specific to college students. Because I'm brainstorming for a possible freshman-seminar class, and I'm interested in topics that are important to making educated citizens or at least will be stimulating -- each topic to take a week or two at most. What do you wish you or yours had learned in college that wasn't covered in regular gen-ed or major? or just a fun topic you think would be of…See More
