cool thing: potentially got a job!
Problem: I'll probably have to wear smart clothes+shoes and that makes me uncomfortable for a variety of reasons
oh well

problems with "smart" clothes:
Social conformity above individual preference
Uncomfortable to wear compared to casual clothes
"smart" shoes are often leather which is a material that should not be used
gender shit

"smart" here is being used in the (apparently british and I didn't know) sense of "more formal than casual clothes but not super formal", like clothes that would actually conform to a dress code.
Collared shirt, ties, that kinda clothing
(just to be less ambiguous)


additionally, I think that interviews for universities and similar should be conducted in 100% whatever you would wear casually because that's a far more accurate representation of the person than getting people to wear psuedo-uniformish clothes for that
