Style: For Guys in High School?

Hi Mr. Sentena,

I’m a student in high school. I like your videos a lot, but do they apply to high school guys as well? I know that you suggest college students to wear dress shirts, but if I wear a dress shirt in high school, I think I’ll look peculiar.

Also, I know what you mean about “military secrets” in regard to shirt-stays. I’m a Civil Air Patrol cadet, so I already knew about them, and whenever I dress up for jazz band concerts I feel much more confident.


Will a backpack damage sports jackets?

Hi guys…I was just wondering if you can help me here. I’m a university student who wants to be dressing better…and I’ve ordered two sports jackets I like…now I’m wondering what I can do seeing as I carry a backpack (not because I like them, but because I need to carry a lot…so a briefcase or small over the shoulder strap bag won’t cut it…this leads me to my question of can a sports jacket be damaged with a backpack? Can the whole gentleman look be ruined with a backpack on? (which if it does…I can’t do much about, I still need to rock it regardless…)

What can I do here with a backpack as a student, and the idea of wearing a sports jacket to dress better at the same time…cheers.

Looking Sharp at College?

I love your style advice but I’m still at college and there’s just no way I’m going to be wearing a suit to class. It’d be way out of place. What can I do to look sharp without trying to dress like I’m on Mad Men?
