Can I wear my Tom Ford suit to work? - Page 3

post #31 of 83
If you choise to buy a TOM FORD suit, you should also have the personality to wear it everywhere.

If you do good work and have a "let's get this sht done" attitude... just make it a non-issue in your mind. Wear wahtever you want, pretend like it's no big thing and make sure you focue on doing a good job and letting everyone know how serious you are about that.

What kind of logic is this? I bought a pair of green cords, does that mean I need to be capable of wearing them to a funeral? All things considered if you are really good at your job and considered an asset to the company, you can wear whatever the hell you want. If they need you more a lot than you need them, you could switch into a tux after 6 and no one would say a peep about it.

A peak lapel is far from flashy. Infact if you look back at the history of it, it dates back to what many would probably call conservative clothiers (ie Savile Row to even RL in modern era of fashion)

Most people aren't going to notice. In fact, a lot of TF suits look like they're old/vintage --- wide lapels, 70s patterns, etc. They'll probably think you inherited them from a grandfather who hardly wore suits.

Perhaps you seek employment in an area where this suit might not cause
controversy, viz: a Men's Pedicure Salon.

it's fine since you bought it at Bergdorf. now, if you bought it at Century 21, the pinked and cut tags are decidedly too flashy for a conservative work environment.

Wear it. Earn a promotion. Be proud.

Wow, power to you! If I could afford a Tom Ford suit, I would most certainly wear it to work. Just go easy on some of his lame ass ties.

I work for a private equity firm in Boston, which is a decently conservative atmosphere, albeit one in which folks tolerate a little flair (but not too much...).

The suit is a plain navy blue, but obviously very modern cut with somewhat wide peak lapels and a high pocket that actually slopes up (a Tom Ford signature, but also the thing that makes it the most potentially inappropriate for work...).

I would obviously tone down the accouterments at work, shirt, tie, etc., but I am still on the bubble - any thoughts?

NO.

I'm no expert on TF or anything "fashion" but unless you're the founder/owner of the firm, I would refraing from wearing a "casual" suit which I can only assume a Tom Ford suit is. It's for parties. Not for business.

What are they going to discharge you because your suit has peak lapels? Get real.
Wear the damn suit. Besides it's not like you will be wearing it every day. If you have meetings with clients or something then you can be conservative on those days. Otherwise rock out with you ____ out. (as long as it doesn't get you fired)

Best with button-fly suits.

I think it is easy to overestimate the general public's appreciation of the details on a suit. Most people out there aren't even aware that there are different types of lapels. Before I started lurking on SF, I was one of them.

Also, If you're built like Kunk....No one will say anything to you about your suit.

Yea, you're probably right.
