    How about a nice pair of dark jeans with this? Per the usual GAP doesnt have my size of 34 in length o.O

    Nick, Absolutely. You could also do brown corduroys, or chinos.

    Thanks for the tip Andrew!

    This would look great with my gray Timberland boots. I am a huge fan of the Pilot brand of pens and have to say that particular fountain pen was disappointing to me.

    Andrew, slightly unrelated..but what are your thoughts on Blazers with contrast linings on their lapels? It seems to be everywhere and I have seen guys wearing it with jeans..Thanks

    I’m digging everything but the boots in this.

    As a grad student I often wonder what I can wear, so here’s some ideas for some posts on how to dress for these situations.

    -Teaching Assistant (TA for a class)
    -Teaching your first class
    -Going to conferences (in my field we have a range of people, some dress up in very nice suits, others go for the casual cool style, it really does depend on the conference)
    -Going to campus or a coffee shop to do work

    extra points for conference getups that are 150 or less!

    grad students in my program are on average 29 (the men at least), with the youngest being 25 and the oldest probably mid to late 30s.
