    Id agree with this. I wear either a sport coat and tie, or a suit to work (travelling consultant) almost every day, and I don't have any customers that require it, or even dress that way. I do it because I like to wear shirt and tie. Sometimes I'll go casual with just a button up and sport coat, sometimes I go more formal with a 3 piece suit, but in general wear whatever is "appropriate" but also makes you feel good. (i.e wearing shorts might make me feel good but they are not appropriate at work )

While I am a fan of dressing up I don't know if you'd really need an everyday blazer for college. If you did, I'd probably go something more informal cotton JCrew type blazer than the traditional brass buttons blazer.

    In my opinion you'd want something that works more with jeans than business. Also, kids change a lot in college (still growing, freshman 15, working out, etc.) and I think the last thing you'd want to do is invest in a blazer at this time that may not fit by the time you graduate and would really need it.
    Heck, I've been teaching College for about 15 years, and even the Profs. dont' wear blazers for the most part. May be different in the northeast, and the above point about fraternity events is a good one. Of course, wear whatever you want, but I don't think a blazer is generally an essential piece of college gear, and it's not something I'd be inclined to spend a fortune on.
