18 Things Guys Need To Stop Wearing After College

Because after you graduate so should your clothes.

Posted on

2. Baja hoodies


Unless you are a professional surfer who travels the world on an endless summer, then you have no reason to wear one of these monstrosities. I mean, I know you want to hang onto those spring break memories from Cancun, but it really is time to move on.


6. Basketball shorts in non-sports settings


Are you currently playing basketball? On your way to play basketball? Been drafted by the Utah Jazz in the third round of the draft? If you answered no to any/all of these questions then do not wear basketball shorts in public. Also, FYI, when you wear them we can all see your wiener.


9. Running shoes / Via

Contrary to popular belief, there is a difference between sneakers meant for running/working out and for everyday wear. Not saying you have to throw out those Brooks, just that they are not an all-purpose shoe and when you pair them with jeans you look like your dad.

Look, we all love boobies. They're great, and any cause to keep them healthy gets my full support. However, after college, wearing one of these makes you look like that creepy old guy at the party. So, y'know, don't be that guy.

13. High school/college letterman jackets

Even after high school these look sort of desperate, since no one cares that you lettered in cross country your sophomore year. The look of desperation is doubled after college, so just put them away in your chest of memories and remember them fondly, like that time your bro dared you to chug that entire bottle of ketchup.

18. College-emblazoned gear

Remember when your parents brought you to orientation and you used their looming sadness to your advantage by convincing them to buy you a bunch of clothes at the college bookstore? Well, now you don't need three hoodies, four shirts, and two pairs of shorts stating where you went. Keep one or two mementos and chuck the rest, because chances are they still reek of the cheap beer you got on them while doing all those keg stands.
