I think it depends heavily on the school. The kids at Penn were dressed like they were halway between business casual and club wear. Guys would wear designer jeans or khakis, with untucked button-downs (a few even threw a sportscoat over the whole thing). The few who wanted to look "casual" were definitely Abercrombie-casual. The ladies all wore nice, expensive-looking blouses, nice jeans/pants (it was winter, so no skirts were out). I didn't see many traditional backpacks, but lots of leather satchels/messenger bags. Michigan was very different. Lots of t-shirts/sweatshirts with jeans/sweatpants. I saw one girl in pjs. Apparantly anything that says 'Michigan' on it is acceptable. A few kids went with the Abercrombie look or a Gap button-down, but no one tried the trendier-than-thou sportscoat look. My ideal look is probably somewhere in-between. I like to look nice, but I'm not above rolling to class in sweats on a lazy Tuesday afternoon.

The real question is pleats or flat front?
Barring a school specific dress code, what do you all consider to be appropriate law school attire? I don't want to be a total slacker by wearing the usual jeans and t-shirt everyday, but wearing a dress shirt and tie all the time would most probably kill me, being a born westerner...
