    Wear whatever you want, whenever you want. Just bring at least a week's worth of shirts, underwear, and socks and you'll be fine. (I'm assuming that you'll be wearing a pair of pants/shorts the day you get there. Well, I HOPE so, at any rate...)

    I've lasted 2 months without doing laundry before. One word: Febreeze.

    Bring two weeks worth of underwear and socks. Double that amount if you like to go to the gym.

    well how much space is given at most colleges, and where do you guys keep your shoes.

    They give you a little closet and a foot locker usually. Sometimes you'll get a dresser too.

    Hmm, on the floor? Im going to bring all of my blue formal shirts and white formal shirts, and an assortment of tshirts and polo shirts. I mean, mixing and matching is the answer, so that you dont look like you're wearing the same thing every week. Also, i have to try to figure out when it gets cold in Indiana, b/c im going to school there.

    Himom pretty much hit it on the head for USC for my son, but with the addition of Wisconsin and UNC tees. On a recent visit we actually got him to allow us to buy him some shirts with collars that weren't from Old Navy. A big step.

    please, whatever yall do, do not wear cargo shorts/pants or jean shorts... you will get absolutely no attention from respectable girls or fraternities, steer clear of abercrombie, hair gel, and jewlry. dont pop your collar, sag your pants, or wear socks with boat shoes.

    of course it depends on the school you go to but i know that in the south, we are pretty preppy and conservative. on a typical day i will wear khaki pants or shorts and a polo shirt with top siders or rainbows.

    some brands that are safe pretty much anywhere are polo, lacoste, vineyard vines, brooks brothers, sperry, patagonia, the north face, mountain hardware, columbia, new balance, rainbows, etc

    you should bring a blazer, dress shirts, and ties if your planning on pledging or doing anything with a sorority, ie semi formals.

    They're just clothes...

    Wear what you want to wear. Screw what everyone else thinks.

    I second what Clemson said about jean shorts, but at most schools in the north, Abercrombie is considered good. At my school it's what the hip crowd wears. If Abercrombie was a no-no, I'd be in trouble since 75% of my wardrobe is A&F. And yes, Polo is something you can't go wrong with at any campus.

    What is wrong with cargo shorts?
  • clemsonboclemsonbo Registered User Posts: 93 Junior Member
    well besides the fact that they look gay and are thug baggy, you dont really need them unless your carrying cargo or are in the army

    When it's hot, I'll wear jean shorts. I have a girlfriend, and I don't want any attention from fraternities. :)
  • andrw313andrw313 Registered User Posts: 701 Member
    Clemsonbo you are an idiot. They are not baggy and they look fine. I see plenty of people wearing them.
  • neverbornneverborn Registered User Posts: 1,877 Senior Member
