Unlike FFXI (which has a minimum level requirement for gear), FFXIV has an Optimal level. You don't get the full effect of stats on gear unless you are at this level or higher.

You can wear items above your level. Don't know why...
I imagine you just don't get the full effects of the armor (+1 Dex, +1 Vit, +25 MP, etc)

Haven't really investigated.

One of the things I love, you don't have to hold tons of gear to change jobs Smiley: thumbsup

I would really like to see some data on how effective stat modifiers are. For now my character is garbed based on looks (those hooded robes are pretty sweet, I feel like Alastair from Assassin's Creed) rather than stats.

You can put on any gear at any time. However, putting on inappropriate gear is generally a bad idea. Inappropriate gear gets nerfed, can wear out much faster than normal, and can even put an "uncomfortable gear" debuff on you.
