    That's just the post-punk attire. Nerdy skinny suit vibes (part of the inspiration for skinny jeans). Not really the same. Go check out pics of Devo, Joy Division, Television, Bowie, Iggy Pop from the late 70s. (Same reason bands like Interpol and She Wants Revenge dressed in suits 30 years later). But you could really replace Zeppelin with any American band of the similar ilk from the same era (Blue Cheer comes to mind) and you'll find similar digs.

    Either way, i posted that meme because it was pretty funny and this thread happened to be revived out of nowhere as it came up on my feed. I don't believe the "fratty/yuppie" style is as ubiquitous as you think but I will agree it's been on a rotation for about 60 years.

    Slacks are easily more comfortable. Don't blame you.

    Are drivers like these still ok to wear with a button down and khakis? What are some other options? I also have Lucchese ropers, but looking for other options.

    It's just a collared shirt. But also that fight video from the Ole Miss game is hilarious in regards to "frat style". There are literally like 10 people wearing identical outfits and it's not like they're wearing team apparel. I would feel like a jackass if I was hanging out with my friends and we all had on matching outfits like some bachelorette party.

    Whatever I "probably" do, at least I don't wear matching outfits with my friends.

    yep,
    My go-to would be nice boots, nice jeans or khaki slacks, button down shirt and casual jacket (mine has patches on the elbows) no tie

    but I am pretty damn far from any fashion person, so I would advise doing exactly the opposite of what I would do

    Will be back up in a week or two at FSU. Too many big events(homecoming, philanthropy) especially for sororities. Good PR move for FSU it's not a permaban.

    It’s not as thick or warm as I was expecting, but I’m a fan to say the least. Can tell it’s made for southern winters

    what's the preferred pants style of Bonobos? Got an email saying the sale items are on extra 25% off so probably buy a couple pairs for work. Not looking for "slacks" more of a jeans guy but would be nice to have a khaki color and navy color more casual pants. Options:

    Washed Chinos
    Stretch Washed Chinos
    Travel Jeans
    5 Pocket Bedford Pants

    Also assuming Athletic cut is best for all styles
