cwp I would have liked the blazer much better with a white tee and some slim fit raw dark denim.

Tom: keep everything the way it is except put your shirt collar back inside your jacket. The tie inside the shirt is cool, but spread out the collar less so it covers the tie a little, makes it a cool detail people notice only up close instead of being too out there.

What would you think if a black male (me) wore this 3/4 coat around campus?
Hey,

I'm wondering what you would think if you saw a black male wearing this coat in a college atmosphere (that is, not business/corporate shirt and tie environment). That is, do you think I would be seen as out of place wearing it?

I'm really looking for thoughts on this. I already wear the coat, now I'm trying to think about whether I shouldn't anymore, or if I should continue. Please don't tell me to just be who I am, or something like that, I'm looking for opinions specifically on what you would think.

Well here in Europe a lot of college men wear such coats, especially with jeans. I donīt understand whatīs the big deal. I really like your choice.

Definetily wear it - it looks smart. More smarter than what I expect a lot of guys at college to wear. Keep it up!

keep wearing it, I can't see a single reason why you shouldn't.

I think you should wear the coat as it looks so smart - I'm sure you'll look great in it.
There's nothing wrong with standing out from the crowd in a good way

However, I think you should also consider if you'll feel awkward wearing it too..because if anything makes you feel uncomfortable, it just wouldn't work.

Looks like a great coat! I'd probably admire it if someone walked by with it, definitely keep wearing it.

The way you dress can subconsciously effect the way your professors grade you. So the smarter, the better.

I think you would look nicer than a lot of other guys at college, which is not a bad thing, but you wouldn't look overdone. Like others said, it's a classic piece. I would say most definitely keep wearing it.
