Pyjamas banned at Oxford

“A slovenly practice,” says Brasenose College


 

Slovenly behaviour? Flick/robinnhansen

Students at mighty Oxford University in the U.K. have been warned that they must stop wearing pyjamas to the dining hall during breakfast, reports BBC.

“This practice evinces a failure to distinguish between public and private spaces in college,” read posters tacked up in Brasenose College, Prime Minister David Cameron’s alma mater.

The notice (presumably from the dean) also said, “I trust that this slovenly practice will cease forthwith” and suggested that “formal gowns”  be worn to dinners. (I’ve heard of gown dinners at the University of Toronto, but they’re more of a fun nod to tradition than a required dress code.)

With lessons like these, it’s easy to see why an Oxford education is so highly esteemed.

  1. This is hilarious. When I was at Oxford (2005-2008) gowns were required at dinners. Lunch and breakfast were gown free.

    Oxford is a strange place, but that is what makes it so endearing.
