Must have wardrobe items for every Ugandan campus guy

Being a guy at University is quite simple especially when it comes to dressing. All the outfits you require to survive for a full semester including a blanket and bedsheets can perfectly fit in just two bag packs.

As ladies stream into campus with suitcases containing every category of wearables, guys are pretty comfortable coming with only as little as possible.

Must have wardrobe items for every Ugandan campus guy

Nevertheless, there are certain items that are just necessary for every campus guy’s wardrobe to remain comfortable throughout the week. They include;

3 T-shirts (Simple designs).

Best tops you can put on when you are out to meet people. They should look inviting. Get T-shirts that perfectly fit your body. But be mindful of their colors and whatever is printed on them. Wearing pink shirts is a NO for a campus guy.

3 Shirts (Most preferably white and at least one long-sleeved).

Whenever a campus guy wants to attend an official meeting or just wants to look presentable, shirts are the way to go. White shirts can be matched well with various types of trousers and leather shoes. Ensure that you have at least 3 of these.

2 or 3 Pairs of jeans (Well-fitting).

You are not a complete campus guy if you don’t have at least a pair of jeans. Jeans define confidence and when you match them with sharpshooters like the Texas Rangers; bro, you own the place.

1 or 2 Belts (Neutral colored; brown or black).

Don’t be so obsessed with the buckle of a belt; just get a neutral-type buckle with either a brown or black body. A belt is just meant to hold your pants; hence it should not be taken as a defining feature of your dressing style. Note: Neutral buckles don’t scream for attention.

A pair of neutral-colored shoes (Most preferable brown/black).

Loafers are the best all-weather shoes you can buy. They are very comfortable and you can match them with almost any pants.

A pair of leather shoes.

Not only will you wear them for official purposes but also for attending lectures. As I explained in my other article on why you should mind your clothes while at University, putting on official clothes when attending lectures makes you feel confident and can help you think sharper and remain determined.

6 Underwears.

Sorry, but I had to mention this. Many times we focus on the ‘big’ things and forget the ‘little’ most important things. It is very crucial to have inner wears ready for any day you want to get out of your hostel room and for that matter, they should always be clean. So ensure that have as many as you can.

4 pairs of Socks.

While in high school, we used to wear one pair of socks of weeks or even a month. As a campus guy, it is to grow up and wear clean socks every day. Make sure you buy enough of them and have a specific timetable for washing them along with your inner wears.

1 or 2 Sweaters.

When cold strikes, get ready to guard your health with a sweater. Flu is very common at University. A sweater or jumper comes in handy when it comes to keeping colds away. Also, studying at night would require you to be warm and comfortable and a sweater would give you both.

2 Khaki trousers.

I the present day, being casually dressed as a campuser is best described by khaki trousers. Khakis are also all-weather pants and can be matched with a lot of other items.


Well, as a campus guy, these are the major items you’ll need to survive comfortably at campus while having the ultimate university experience. If you have any more suggestions, please share them in the comments section to keep the conversation going.
