Listen up, all you guys who need to impress your teacher by the end of the semester so you can graduate.  If you want to show you are a serious student, just get yourself over to the Adjunct store pronto where there is a clearance sale going on up on the second floor.

There are some real finds up there and each one is only $10L. My dress shirt can be bought in any of several colors and includes both tucked and untucked versions of the long-sleeved or rolled-up sleeve styles. Both styles come in open collar or buttoned collar looks. Take it from someone who should know, teachers just love that neat, tidy, tucked-in shirt look. The bow tie is one I had in my inventory from an earlier hunt and is not sold with the shirt. I’ve paired the shirt with Adjunct’s suspender pants, also only $10L. For that low price you get both the long version with tidy prim cuffs and short ones with rolled up prim legs. If you want to use your suspenders to hold up your pants there is a choice of six jacket-layer color schemes including the orange and green style I’m wearing. If you’d rather let the suspenders hang down, just wear the prim version instead, which comes with a resizer and a texture change menu.

That gets me to the all-important personal style choices one needs to make to reinforce the serious student look. First you will need thick glasses with black frames, and this pair is available from Fleebish! on the Marketplace for just $20L. Hair should be short and well-groomed, preferably slicked down in a 1950′s style like this Frank hair which is the Breakfast at Tiffany’s hunt gift from A&A Hair. If you choose to wear a hat, it should be the kind worn by French intellectuals, namely a beret. This one is $10L from Adjunct’s clearance sale, and has a color-change script in it so that you can color coordinate with your suspenders. Now finally, facial hair is optional, but if you wear it, it should be neatly groomed like this Dali mustache, also just $10L at the Adjunct sale. Adjunct has several mustache styles on sale and all of them – get this – have a wiggling animation which you can turn on and off. What a deal!

Voila! There you have it – the perfect nerd – oops! — I mean, serious student look. And don’t forget an apple for the teacher.
