Wear the foil thingy. Only true finishers get that.

It sounds like paying $110 for the jacket and wearing it around town is frowned upon in LRC circles. What about wearing the long sleeve tech shirt they give you? What about buying a low key t-shirt for warmer weather?
If you like the look & fit and you want to wear it then get it!
I liked the black cotten long sleeve in Boston 2007 best.
Also I have hand me downs from a friend’s triathlon races... i get the occasional
‘did you do the so & so triathlon?” and I just say no.
When I was teaching, I had an unvoiced aversion to any of my running colleagues who would sport the Sunday race t-shirt to class Monday, but not as great as I had with those who called in sick Monday after a Sunday race. And I thought it was a major breach of etiquette to wear the race shirt DURING the race itself.
Only the Sam Adams beer opener from the expo. Wear it on a chain hanging from your neck 24/7, you never know when you might need it
