CEO: How should a CEO of a major corporation dress? - Page 2

post #16 of 57
Where I work the CEO wears jeans, black turtle neck and sneakers sometimes substituted by Keens.
I've seen him give a major communications meeting in ripped jeans no less.

Yes, the coat is definitely is too long by any number of measures. The pockets are too low - look at that huge, blank stretch. Quarters too closed. Waistcoat too high, "throwing down" the balance of the coat (I think this is where a lot of 3 pieces fail these days). This is perhaps personal taste, but the shoulders are too extended and padded. He doesn't need it. It seems a strangely designed suit.

I like the outfit of Steve Mcqueen in the original Thomas Crown Affair 1968 better. Steve looks like a cool CEO.

Yep, it's an awesome company to work for... unless you're interested in fashion and don't work in marketing/advertising/legal. Most of the company is engineering and if you show up in anything dressier than a polo shirt you get odd looks. God forbid someone wore a tie let alone a suit to work. In 5 years I've yet to see an employee where a tie or suit. Wearing a long sleeve collared shirt (even with jeans) elicits quite a few "job hunting?" "going on a date tonight?" responses from bosses and coworkers. Hard to imagine that you have to really "try" to not upstage your bosses when dressing in the morning.

--Actually I did, not quite CEO though, but I'm moving on up, to the top, to a deluxe apartment in the sky.

Sounds like a Dandy's nightmare. Still, working with and for kind, decent people may be reward enough to offset the sartorial dearth.

Entirely as he deems appropriate for his organisation - there are no rules whatever - we merely have opinions which are in reality irrelevant.

Larry Kudlow wins in the "Power CEO" category. He looks quite good.

Those frames are a little 1985 though. Only Greenspan can get away with those.

Agreed. I don't think he wears those frames anymore, it's an older picture.
