A British quiz program, University Challenge, was going on with its affairs as usual until something caught the eye of social media users and took the Internet by storm.
Followers of the show were left shell-shocked when Kamil Shah, a contestant on the King’s College, Cambridge, team, showed up at the quiz in his vest coupled with a thick gold chain.
Shah's attire immediately gave away that he doesn't study fashion – he later revealed he studies history at his college.
The BBC show hosted by Jeremy Paxman is well known for its modest dress code and people were surprised that Paxman actually tolerated someone turning up at the challenge in a leather vest.
Numerous tweets followed:

When will Shah from #universitychallenge break his silence? Was it a dare? Or was it just pure swag?— Katie White (@katherinelouisa) September 8, 2015
Can't believe I missed the #universitychallenge episode with someone wearing a faux leather vest on it. I'm amazed Paxman let that slide.— Anna Sampson (@alsamps21) September 8, 2015
On the other hand, Shah landed himself some fans too, and had a few girls here and there drooling over him. Check these tweets out:

Why are people moaning about what the guy is wearing when he was probably smarter than you before he could walk? #universitychallenge— Sam Riley (@RileySam9) September 8, 2015
