I've always been a more "dressy" kind of guy (Express Men is my favorite store). I like wearing polos, leather jackets, jeans, nice sneakers, cardigans, etc. (Hopefully you get the picture). But I'm going off to college soon, and I'm not sure that style will exactly roll well. It's not like I wanna be a poser, but I don't wanna stick out like a sore thumb either. So what I need help from you guys is some suggestions as to what stores to start looking at to perhaps change my wardrobe. And it's not like I don;t mind looking more casual, on the contrary I would have no problem with it, I'm just curious as to what brands or stores (both clothes and shoes) are famous among typical, chill, college guys.

Let me tell you something. As a freshman, you are probably right, that style won't fit in well. But if you are majoring in something serious, like business or engineering (I don't count premed as serious because doctors get to wear pj's, scrubs, to work so style does not affect them even tho they are very serious) You will actually begin to not fit in if you DONT dress like that.
In my accounting 301 class, the unwritten, unexpressed dress code is business casual. someone fully suited would fit in just fine. someone wearing baggy ripped jeans and a death metal hoodie would stand out in a bad way.
However, I am also taking Musicology 141, and it is like walking over to the bad part of town. If you are dressed up you look strange.
Basically, it depends on your major how you should dress. Serious majors tend to dress up more than say.. music majors.
(Disclaimer, this is not a crap on the libral arts, but seriously, if I want to get a job as a public accountant then I gotta look neat and orderly. if I want to get a job as a musician, or activist, or language teacher, there's just not the same requirement.)0
