Don't know what to tell you, as the sartorial connundrum you articulate is weird. Everyone loves the Strands IRL, even stuffy conservative people.
Yeah I know it's weird. But that's what I surmise from the people I've talked to who work there - they're following the trend of business casual out of obligation, but are still pretty conservative in what they expect. I would just wear business formal each day, but I don't want to stand out too much or be better dressed than my superiors.
You've almost sold me on the Strand. I think I'll go into the store and agonize over it or the Fifth Avenue.....thanks again for the advice.
