I have no idea where this is going…just take it where you want…
I was at a dinner/banquet of my wife’s. It was a bit noisy and I had time to observe these people, roughly 30-60 years old. Some were attempting to be formal, but casual as well. Somehow that does not work. Very few people can wear a sports coat with a turtle neck or round collared shirt and look OK. It’s like those guys in 1980 that still wore some kind of gold medal around their neck. Just out of place, wrong decade, etc.
I realize many of you aren’t done with college and have not had your first serious job interview. But at some point you’ll need to buy a suit. I have one, a $300 suit, that I almost never wear. I’ll wear a sports coat, collared shirt, and no tie.
This bunch doesn’t seem all that conventional, and I have a hard time imagining all of you with pictures in the TM page with business suits.
Most of all many feel they never want a suit, yet you have to wear one occasionally.
Women’s business suits I have no real info on, but some sort of bow around the neck always looks ridiculous as part of the outfit.
Anyone work at a corporate office? What’s the requirement these days?
I’m just rambling on…so …comments?
