My suits are not old and boring.. Perhaps your broke ass has some old boring suits but I sure don't.

Puffy checked shirts, woven sashes, possibles bags, powder horns, maybe a few feathers....

Oh, and garters to match the sash.

You can't fault Ferengi for their sense of business fashion.


I thought Ferengi kept their women naked? I'd agree with you, except that the woman in that photo is clothed.

For more formal dress occasions, like when entertaining the IPO financial partners

For visiting those under-performing field offices that have to be dragged and kicking into the company's strategic plan ...

It's a Kilt.

If they were wearing something under it, it'd be a skirt.

CitizenTed: I'd be happy to wear a suit and tie, but not today's version. Wide ties, awful-looking cuts on jackets. Blech. I prefer the thin ties and thin lapels of the early 60's. THIS is how a man should look in public:

[themurdockman.com image 330x400]

THIS IS WHAT COOL IS.


Haven't shopped for a suit in awhile? This is one I just picked up a week or so ago. We're getting some 60s flare back in suits as more people are starting to wear them again they're becoming a lot more stylish. Armani has some good stuff! Also Burberry and Gucci have some nice stuff with thinner lapels and ties that match the inverse angle.

for girls i would choose white tank top, no bra, and some type of denim bottoms.
for guys, i would choose a yellow speedo, with words banana hammock written on the back.

and for ugly people, rainbow snuggies

Also shoes.. Can't believe how many people I see in a 300 or 400 dollar suit (which isnt too bad) and wearing $40 slip ons. Spend some money on two - four nice pairs of shoes. I prefer Santoni's and have 4 pairs of those. With a good cobbler (yes they still exist) you can get a decade or more out of an expensive pair of shoes.

Behold the Santoni:

fark suits.

Do you have any idea how much suits cost? A friend just spent $5k on an Armani?! (I kinda wanted to sleep with him when he was wearing it but still...)

groppet: Genju: groppet: I wear a suit a few times a year I got a couple for weddings, funerals, court, work functions. But nobody at my job wears a suit hell today the president is in a polo and khakis. When I was at another work site my dikfur boss told me I would get farther in the company if I dressed better. I pointed out how my work speaks for itself and when Im not there it is felt and if he wanted me to dress better he should pay better and get me a job where I would have a better than 90% chance of not having some crap spilled on me.

The short term sting of firing you is far less painful than the long term damage of hubris.

That boss got fired long ago for his hubris. I come to work do my work to the best of my ability and my clients recognize that. My primary job right now is a loading dock manager, nothing special but the people I work with make it harder than it is. My secondary job is to make sure the building I work in works. It is a little bit harder but not by much. So I spend a lot of time in places that would be unfriendly to suits. So I dont wear one.


So wait as a dock loading manager do you do any lifting? Even in my high school sporting goods job I had to wear Khakis and a polo shirt. Plenty of opportunity to get grease all over you or who knows what. You didn't say anything in your OP about wearing a suit, only that your boss thought you dressed lower than your job. I was going to ask if you showed up to work in like Bermuda shorts and a tie dye with sandals. Either way, while I agree that people who only judge a worker by their attire is indeed shallow, the way you presented your argument just made you out to sound irreplaceable which trust me next to no one is, and if you are then you are a single point of failure which should have never been allowed to occur in the first place.

Basically either you are underutilized and should be promoted or your peers (other dock loading managers or are you the sole one?) are complete incompetents in comparison to you. I give you benefit of the doubt and say the former. But hey, could be both.

But only AFTER 6 PM, of course, we're not Philistines.


I think you're missing the concept of morning dress - this is daywear. After 6PM, you wear a dinner suit (i.e. a tuxedo, or, if you're English, a dinner jacket).
 
2012-05-07 04:08:29 PM
I don't mind a suit in the winter. It looks nice.

During the summer it's just dumb -- and wasteful. How much electricity do we use cooling buildings because people think they should be wearing 3 layers of clothing indoors?

I do lift things every day. Just a min ago I was loading copier parts. But I do wear nice pants and either a decent collered shirt or a polo shirt. I wish I could dress in shorts and a t shirt. I do think I am underutilized and I think my bosses boss and some of the people from our corporate office realized that the last time there where here. Made me feel like I was having a meeting with the Bobs.

quickdraw: ami5000: Splish: A nice, simple, properly fitted suit, is the sexiest thing a guy can wear. There is no room for argument on that. But no, let's see what else we can come up with.

This is accurate. No room for disagreement.

I dont like suits. To me they exude a complete negation of sensuality. Total turn off.

If I woke up tomorrow and everyone had stopped wearing suits and started wearing kilts I would be a very happy woman.

That said, I actually HAVE worn my kilt to work on multiple occasions. Was quite entertaining, all the odd looks and devilish smirks from the ladies.

If that stupid tie wasn't as wide as a freeway, it would almost be cool. The charcoal gray color and the not-quite-white shirt say "I really want to have that classic look, but I can't throw off the last vestiges of the 1990's!"

Untucked shirts and jeans, thank you. Suits and ties look good, but they're expensive to buy and keep clean, and they're uncomfortable.

Anyone ever stop to consider what a suicidal garment the cape is? Look at it. It attaches AROUND YOUR NECK and the rest of it billows out behind you trying to get snagged on/in anything possible for that "Clothesline" effect.


That's how Dollar Bill dies in the Watchmen series, if I recall. Cape caught in a door.

Late to the party as usual, but I have a kilt and will be wearing it after work tonight. I also own a nice suit with a few different ties and shirts to mix it up a bit. On top of that, I also have a beautiful neo-victorian vest that ties up the back, it's black and copper and also goes well with the kilt and a black, pinstriped dress shirt. A fedora and a derby to top my shavedd head, and I'm ready to strut down the street to ZZ Top.
