How do you plan to dress during the 1L year?
« on: February 24, 2007, 11:52:13 PM »
I am going for the "River Runs through It" Look, with the fedora, sports coat and khakis/suit), and suspenders with briefcase in tow, but may come across more like Eurkel. However, I think that it sends a good impression to the professors that you respect the institution of learning and the education you are recieving. I just dont want to come across as Fonsworth Bentley.

Shorts, jeans, t-shirts, occasional polo shirt, flip-flops all year.  I'm going to UF.  It's expected.  Gator clothes are also always appreciated.

I may break down, and sport some West Virginia gear during football season, if i go there, but I would rather be donning a Terrapin or George Mason shirt, if you get my drift.

i'm a 1L who was out working for 4 years, and my clothing completely regressed to junior high styling.  sweatshirts and fleeces... i never thought i'd actually leave the house in those, but here i am  ;)

all my work clothes are stored in a duffel in the back of my closet, waiting to see the light of day.

Elle Woods- I already have these really cute DKNY eyeglasses that I don't need. So I'm ready to go

Most people dress the same as they did in undergrad, "dressing up" only when there is a big event where they want to impress someone.  Wearing a sport coat to law school (at least in the Midwest) will have you labeled "tool" faster than you can sew elbow patches on tweed!

Jeans, sweatpants and sweatshirts. If I live in a dorm connected to the law school... then pajamas ;)

I think I'll just take my cues from what the majority are wearing. I'm guessing I'll be living in jeans and casual clothes again.
