I am 32 years old, and there is no way that I'm going to look like a homeless person in class. I would look like a tool on the opposite extreme - the oldster who is trying to look hip (I remember a scene on "Friends" - it was a sitcom back in the olden days - when one of the main characters Joey was trying to get an acting part written for a 19-year-old. He came out with a Knicks jersey, sweats pulled down around his ass and a stocking cap. I don't want to be that guy).
I mean, polos and button-ups w/jeans or very casual khakis are essentially my couch clothes these days.
I hear ya. Nonetheless, there's a wide range of button up shirts--some are clearly more casual than others. I'm definitely going to be wearing button up shirts and khakis when I go to LS, but I doubt I'll be making use of my collection of solid blue, solid white, and striped blue shirts (all very business casual and none of which can be worn without being tucked in). I'm certainly not going to be ironing my clothes on a regular basis.
Well, sure, certainly not those! I'm talking J-Crew, A&F, Banana Republic shirts that you don't tuck in. I mean, if someone thinks I'm a tool for having a "collared shirt" on, then I give up.
