 You'd probably raise some eyebrows if were to work in womenswear.
 yep
 High finance is a douchey name for investment banking/private equity/hedge funds/certain types of asset management, etc. Retail/commercial banking and private wealth management is usually not meant when one says high finance. I think it's a stupid term, but there isn't really a better one.  The work you do in the finance department of a regular company is usually of a very different nature. Some people call it the 'real economy'. Some firms do have m&a type teams as well...
Come on guys, it would've been much more fun if you went along with it, but now the shtick is up. It would've been hilarious if he'd asked Leonard Logsdail to stitch black lapel labels on his suits.   @semperexcelsius I'll be good natured. I've never seen anyone check for labels or google someone's brand or whatever. You can wear whatever you like, as long as it's not too flashy and more than a standard deviation away from your peers. I guess one exception could be...
Ok, I'm going to wear a bespoke three piece suit and tie with a pocket square on Monday, because apparently I'm wrong. I'll report back with feedback. Dress for the job you want, right?
Yep, go dress like your MD or partner on the first day of your job. See how that goes over. Good luck!I did preface my advice with the fact that I was talking about high finance/big law. If you're in the finance department of a regular f500 for example, things won't be nearly as strict.
I'm not sure what the effect would be. Your shoulders would still be sloped, but they will look a bit stronger. I guess it depends on how strongly it's roped. Probably best to try on a suit with a roped shoulder to see if you like it.I can't stress this enough, you can read all you want, but it won't help you much if you don't see it for yourself. If you live in a reasonably big city, just take an afternoon to try on loads of different cuts and different brands. You'll be...
Nothing brave about it, as I know you were talking in jest, as was I. However, I seriously do think a lot of people could use some shoulder pads. They shouldn't be so vilified as they are at the moment.I'm going to try a roped shoulder on my next suit as well. Probably a navy mohair peak lapel, although I might just go for a notch lapel to make it slightly more versatile.
To be honest, it looks bad, on you as well. The difference between how steed jackets look on you and on Vox is massive.I don't know why I say to be honest, because I'm always honest. Nothin but the harsh truth for you guys. Pads would look good on you.
Sloping shoulders generally require pads. Narrow shoulders extension.
