I am 27 years old and still swoon at the sight of a school-girl inspired jumper, a knee length pleating skirt, solid colored knee highs and collared shirts. I have basically interpreted school uniforms into my own daily life uniform and will most likely be doing so until I am somewhere in my thirties and people force me to stop. But the fact that I am in my late 20s and often get confused for early 20s, I have a few years left of dressing as a private school student and getting away with it.
But what I really want to be wearing is the perfection of what is the British school boy uniform. Yea skirts are fun, but give me the charm of the matching blazer and shorts, sweater vest, striped ties, the wool socks and shiny oxfords! I have been on a mission to find a short and blazer set reminiscing of the British School uniform in April size but it has been tough. There is the option of putting 2 different shorts and a blazer together and calling it a set, but it is hard to find pieces that perfectly match. I need to make friends with British school boys and buy uniforms off them and have it tailored to suit me. If that's my only option so be it!
On the other hand for you gentlemanly gentleman who want to vibe into your inner school boy (or Angus Young) Thom Brown Spring 11 Men's line channels well suited students.

This post make me want to go home and watch "if..." tonight.
