I dunno man. That guy could be in any office I've ever worked in- Brooks Brothers shirts, pleated poly blend trousers the wife bought from Kohl's, shitty square toed rubber soled shoes he got from DSW.. I see it every day. Despite what the article says, wearing a blazer to work in an office like mine (in Austin, Texas) is just impractical. One, 70% of the year it's just too hot, and two, everyone is wearing t-shirts and jeans. The odd day that you actually wear wool trousers, people comment on it and jokingly ask if you have an interview or something. Admittedly, the last time I wore wool trousers at my office.. it was only because a director was visiting. There used to be a guy who regularly wore blazers to the office, and everyone just thought he was a douche. True, he also wore "guy-liner," a spray-on tan, and was a shameless brand-whore, but still.
