I suppose so. Look, chances are if you wear something that didn't come from Today's Man or Banana Republic you are going to look better than the majority of people in today's offices. Is that the kind of standing out you are going to mind? I don't understand why people are concerned about standing out? All these threads about whether it's ok to dress better than their boss, whether it's ok to have a nicer briefcase than a superior, whether a cutaway collar will be too striking... Sorry, it's not you, it's just I don't understand this desire to blend in. I knew someone who used to interview a lot. He always asked his interviewees where they pictured themselves in 10 years. The wrong answer was to say, oh, in a mid-level position, making a decent salary. The correct answer is: I want your job; in fact, I want to be running this whole place. It's the correct answer because it's the ambitious answer. Working hard for yourself means your going to work hard for the firm. When you want to make yourself money, you end up making the firm money. Everyone wins. The sure way to get to the top is to act the part before you get there. This isn't to say you should act out of turn, or speak at a meeting when your role is really to listen and let the more senior colleague do the talking. But, dressing beyond your "station," having the right manners and etiquette - these never hurt anyone. Sorry for the ramble. I have gone way beyond your question. But, in short, my answer is: go for it. People are not going to look at your cutaway collar and whisper beyond your back, "Did you see what weeks was wearing today. Can you believe that guy.?.?." Believe me. Looking and acting the part means you ARE the part.
