Graduation. Probably the proudest moment of your life until your wife gives birth to your first born child…oh and until you get married of course *ehem*. I’ve seen so many graduates turn up to their ceremony wearing either jeans, a t-shirt or runners. Don’t even think about it. Suit up or shut up. Buy a suit and let your parents pay for it for all I care. At the end of the day, this is your day!

Here I’m wearing:
