Average age is probably Eyetalian arithmetic...could be lower than years past if have lots of kleptocrat kids from Chindia buying the brand (at stores in NYC or at their US college's bookstore) Don't know of any VCs or tech kings in SiliconValley who ever wear a suit and/or tie to office or board meetings And lots of hedgies in MidtownManhattan or CA similarly gave up ties and suits years ago Would guess bespoke/MTM/OTR suit sales to highest-income crowd in NYC or...
Relevance of any boarding school has decreased dramatically; suspect they are largely refugee camps for kids from ThirdWorld or the kids of the affluent surgeon/cardiologist from Podunk US Maybe 15+yrs ago in investment banking (not trading) at Goldman, MS, etc would see lots of kids from elite boarding schools...but, even back then, had lots of public HS kids (from middle-income suburbia) who had managed to enter the usual Harvard or Stanford path to GS, etc...and lots...
Don't know of any <60yo IBers or PE guys who wear contrasting collar/cuffs...an ancient '80s look Traders at GS NYC tend to dress like crap, often in cheapest OTR suit/shirt (albeit w/Hermes tie) available at some clearance sale...just look at attire of the highest-paid guys there Most <40yo hedge fund traders and managers in NYC don't even wear ties to office any more (though FC dress shirts are common) And in PaloAlto/SF, ties and suits are immediate mark of...
Who are the world's wealthiest guys and what's their daily office attire? Neither tech kings in SiliconValley (even elderly guys like Jobs or Ellison) nor most <50yo hedge fund kings in MidtownManhattan or Greenwich or SF (or London) ever wear ties to office, let alone to dinner...ties are for low-income Luddites mired in 20th century attire....even jackets are largely ornamental as wealthy traders or engineers don't wear jackets while at their desk nor while driving...
Far more civilized than Manhattan, let alone commie towns in Germany/Lond Anyone with some money drives a new AMG around town and down to PaloAlto/Woodside (to do business w/people with real IQ/money); has garages at home/office and valet pkg at any restaurant that matters...cabs/trains are for 3rdWorld losers in NYC/Lond who prefer to mingle with the unwashed masses (homeless or not) LA is a short flt and invariably penniless bimbos travel to wherever is...
Know of 2 or 3 now-34yo guys (Wharton undergrads) who chose to go to Chicago as first-yr IB M&A analysts back in '95, rather than Manhattan, precisely because of Chic's cheap costs/taxes, new apt towers and undgd garages at home/office and valet pkg at restaurants, allowing even a mere IB analyst to drive around town everywhere in some new, leased C300, impervious to Chic's ugly weather (no worse than NYC if in a climate-controlled Mercedes commuting from garage to...
None in SF region; closest is BH But given no. of models, lasts, sizes, leather colors, etc, physically visiting any retailer is a waste of time anyway Leffot simply mailed me an EG in last/size I was considering; fit great; sent it back and then spec'd my MTO shoes which arrived some 4 mos later (and was pleased with fit/quality/value of EG MTO shoes and Leffot's seamless process)...and now I easily spec future EG MTOs or TDs via emailing Leffot I live in SF but,...
More efficient to relegate worn-down shoes to beater fleet and spend any money on new, MTO/bespoke copies for fair weather daily fleet...and periodically repeat cycle of consumption...
Ambitious young engineers tend to live in PA itself...work Manhattan investment banking/hedge fund hrs of 80+hrs/wk and want to be near major founders/VCs/bosses/other kid engineers for career networking, to eventually make enough money to retire at a young age to LA's Westside, until get bored of LA's chicks and move to next SV start-up...make more money, retire again, repeat Younger financial guys (IBers, VCs, etc) live up in SF in newer condo towers in Soma (w/air...
Almost no high-income workers (incl tech M&A bankers or VCs or PE or hedgies or software engineers or entrepreneurs) in SF or SiliconValley have worn suits/ties in decades...suits/ties in SF or PaloAlto usually signify visiting Luddites from Manhattan or other backward towns The few who care about their attire tend to have MTM jackets, shirts, pants made for them in NYC at whichever favorite MTM shop (Ascot Chang is a favorite among some); rare few hard-core guys opt to...
