"Thanks for all the replies, guys! It's good to have the encouragement, and there's been a ton of great advice as well. Now I just need to figure out how I want to improve my style. I figure I'll start out slow at first. I'd…"

"If you are trying to be a professional, act like it. The way you dress gives everyone around you a first impression of you. It is your choice whether that impression is a kid wearing sandals and a tie-dye shirt or a man wearing a button down shirt…"

"You can dress well and dress casually. It wouldn't look much differently than what you wear now. Keep the boots, but also wear some canvas shoes sometimes. Instead of a sportcoat or a nice sweater, wear a casual sweater or a jacket that is a…"

"The only times you can overdress: Wearing a tuxedo outside of a fancy shindig. Wearing pants to a pool party ... and that's it. Now go, and be golden. "

"The current fashion seems to be a bag over shirt on the women and t-shirt and jeans for the guys during the day. The PJ Look is probably a morning class thing.  "

"Its the night school thing.  I went to some night classes in undergrad and law school ... different breed of student.  More grown men than ex-highschoolers. JB"

"I see a lot of sweatpants from my students (in fairness, quite a few are athletes and have morning practices), along with some pajamas.  I don't really expect anything beyond a clean t-shirt and jeans, and would be astounded to see a tie…"

"Probably a redundant answer, but the most important thing by a wide margin, is for you to embrace what makes you yourself, and wear it with swagger--not just literally wearing your clothing--but everything else as well. I am a professional music in…"

Josh Willems replied to Josh Willems's discussion Dressing too well in college?
"Thanks everyone for your replies! Like some of you said, I guess I just need to quit worrying about what others think and just do what I feel comfortable with. Which is kinda the way I was leaning anyways. I've made some nice finds at thrift…"

"“You can never be overdressed or overeducated.” - Oscar Wilde When I'm dressed nicely, I tend to feel more confident and have a better attitude toward the day (i.e. I don't feel I look like a slob and worry about that all day)."

"What you're describing is less dressy than "business casual."  Don't sweat it.  It's small stuff."

David F. replied to Josh Willems's discussion Dressing too well in college?
"No, you will be dressing better then 90% and you will be noticed.  That is a good thing.  I have a friend who is an undergrad in business.  He wears a tie every day, not a suit but nice clothing and a tie.  At the start of this…"

Alan Andrews replied to Josh Willems's discussion Dressing too well in college?
"If nothing else, dressing well when almost everyone else in your field and peer group is dressing much more casually will make you memorable.  It may not necessarily give you an advantage professionally, but you will be noticed and remembered."

Sir replied to Mongoose's discussion Methinks "Manly" is a Misnomer?
"I am not sure they exist, but if they do: are they right? These definitions say they aren't. If people think it's honorable to lie, cheat, and steal, this doesn't redefine "honorable," but only shows their lack of it."
