    I’m with Ray-Ray on this one. I hate wearing suits, ties and button-up collared shirts on a daily basis. (I have a sensitive skin issue with collars and shirt buttons, so I avoid them. I only wear suits to formal occasions like weddings.)

    When I start teaching and make it as a college professor, I’m gonna stick to motorcycle boots, jeans, turtleneck shirts (long or short sleeved as a concession to weather), and the best pieces from my collection of fifteen (and counting) jackets. (Best way to start building a rapport with my inevitably apathetic and pathetic students is to dress like them)

    Tell someone “no” 5 times. If they still like you, you have found a friend!

    @Punished Snake
    There’s nothing wrong with the clothes you mentioned, but word to the wise about doing it because you want to dress like the students; trying to relate to them by getting on their level could go two ways. It could go well and help you build a rapport with them; or it could make them see you as one of their peers instead of an authority figure, meaning you trade a neutral, apathetic attitude for a " snort why should I listen to you" attitude. I’ve been teaching for a long time, and I’ve seen that the teachers that aren’t careful and are too concerned with being “cool” and popular usually get eaten alive in a classroom.

    I explained why I choose the clothes I wear in the brackets. (Hypersensitive skin. Chafes agonisingly if I have to wear a collar and buttons cut off blood circulation and make me feel compressed. Besides, my history prof. in my second semester often took class in a red university hoodie. A lot of the teachers around my university don’t dress too differently from the students.) But if I have to formalise, I guess I’ll go with a short-sleeved, waist-length Fabindia-brand kurta. (Look up Fabindia online and check their kurtas out.)

    I maintain an unusual student/peer relationship with a lot of my teachers. Almost all of them, actually. I’m usually the only student who does. (But then, I’ve always been closer to my teachers than my fellow students. Never cared much for student pastimes.)

    What subject will you teach? If it’s one of the sciences you could wear retro labcoats!!!

    Best to tell Ray-Ray he can pay back all that he owes first. At once before any more handouts. Or say okay you are square and no more handouts ever.

    My calling is literature. (And you do not have permission to laugh.)

    Literature is the one great passion of my life.

    You mean like, “No. No. No. No. No. Yes.” (From “The Vicar” TV series on BBC.)
