I've started talking about this in a revived Gordon Gekko thread. As I mentioned there, I like that aggressive Eighties business style very much, and I am incorporating it (suitably freshened, I like to think
) into my daily business wear.
It is perfectly true that there is less dressing for power than there used to be, but that also opens an opportunity to stand out by doing so. One workday I ran into a relative I hadn't seen in a while, and the first words she said were "You look powerful!" I liked that.
