Unless you were just referring to the sloppy collar point, which I think can be explained by getting rained on in the morning, working all day, and getting rained on in the afternoon.
I get a few comments from time to time, but never anything negative, and with decreasing frequency over time.

But honestly, I don't plan to be an analyst forever, and whether they realize it or not, people treat you differently based on your appearance.
