Wearing a tie to class (college/university): acceptable?

I like ties and I wear them occasionally. I'm not asking if it is normal attire as I know that it is not, but is it acceptable. I mean, if you saw a guy in class wearing a tie would you think he was a complete weirdo because this is the impression I get from a quick google search. Further explanation and honesty is appreciated. Thanks

  • Depends on the guys personality.

    People dressed up all the time in my school - usually sports players before a game. It was to teach them professionalism or something like that. Basically, an excuse for them to get all fancied up and come to school looking good lol.

    Sometimes I wear a skirt suit to school, but the work I do requires it, so I don't want to run home to change. I get more compliments wearing dress up attire. So do my guy friends when they wear ties and what not.

    One of them did get away with a bow - tie, but he looks like James Bond and is really popular so...

  • I think it depends on how you wear them. There are some ways that I've seen guys wear bow ties that make them look super casual :) I'm sure if you just google it you can find ideas on how to them a little less formal and a little more acceptable

  • I would assume he was wearing it for a presentation or job interview. I would like it since most guys just wear jeans and t-shirts.

  • Used to wear Italian hand made suits to class. It's actually quite nice and comfortable. So no problem there.
