I work in a quite conservative environment, but with a certain liberty when it comes to dressing. I like to dress in black inter alia because no other men at the company do. However, I am not sure that I am doing the right thing (nevertheless, at present it does not seem to hurt my professional career).
By the way, some years ago I asked my shirtmaker for a black fabric, and he told me that "Please, do not misunderstand me, Sir, but today, only gypsies wear black shirts". (Explanation for U.S. readers: In Spain, gypsie style is not considered appropriate for business; also, political correctness appears to be a pending issue for Spanish shirtmakers).
