No one said you have to iron your shirts to not look like a slob. If you can't wake up and have enough time to grab a clean t-shirt out of your drawer and take a quick shower because you are afraid of losing those 10 minutes of study time, I think you have problem. And I'm sure those 10 minutes can be made up at some other time of the day.
I'm not talking about always wearing khaki's and a button down, or wearing a "power suit" or anything. All I'm saying is make sure your clean, have clean clothes (and underwear just because that's good hygiene), and brush your teeth. I don't see how that would be very detrimental to your study time.
You ask too much from people like him. He wouldn't even tuck in his shirt most of the time. People joked that he must have worn a suit to the interview...but no one was sure if he had a suit. He never dressed up for class.
