I’m a teacher.  What should I wear?
1. As you know, I’m not rich. 2. I’m 32. 3. I have two kids. 4. I teach physics.
I love this one.  As a teacher, you have a great uniform to tap into and tweak to your heart’s content.
Here’s what I recommend:
Some slim-fitting, flattering chinos, like the Uniqlo Vintage Chino.
Some tasteful raw blue jeans.
Some slim-fitting cords — J. Crew after Christmas is a great source.
A few vintage corduroy and tweed sportcoats.  You can get lovely vintage Harris and Donegal tweeds  very inexpensively on Ebay.  Avoid exaggerated 70s styles (super-wide lapels) and you’ll be fine.
Plain, well-fitted white and blue oxford shirts.
Some boots.
Knit ties and v-neck sweaters as appropriate.
Mix at will.
