HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 3792  

post #56866 of 78717
Another day of wearing all blue. For some reason I feel light blue shirts are more conservative than white, because they create less of a stark contrast between the shirt and the tie.

Conservative? Pshaw.

Wait.

Knit tie probably kills the conservative part

What's IBM? You mean the company, or is it some kind of #menswear abbreviation I'm not familiar with?

I would assume the company.

I doubt your banter offends anyone, it keeps things lively. This thread wouldn't even have half of the posts if it wasn't for all the banter and the snark.

Still don't know what that company has to do with conservative business wear. Engineers are not particularly known for the way they dress.

The BD shirt, the loafers and the missing PS too.

I love that SF's tendency to abbreviate has warped your preconceptions so much, so fast. rotflmao.gif

 

(IBM was infamous for a ridiculously strict dresscode back in the day. No shirt other than white was acceptable.)

Though, I think we should come up with an SF usage that also abbreviates to IBM... Inspired Business Menswear? Intentionally Bad Menswear? decisions.gif

In ye olden tymes, IBM employees were required to wear white shirts. I almost wrote "male employees" but realized that would be redundant.

Thanks for the explanation guys, I do remember reading something about their dresscode a long time ago, but my mind just didn't make the connection, too jaded by SF abbreviations I guess. White shirts are more formal, but they're definitely not more conservative, they stand out too much for that.

 

Besides, light blue shirts look a hell of a lot better on most people, especially on those with blue eyes. Heck, I wouldn't mind wearing light blue shirts for the rest of my career. I kind of get where Foo was coming from with his OneShirtTM.

Long, long ago, IBM was notorious for having a strict dress code that required employees wear a grey suit, white shirt, and black shoes.

BD is "classic" eastcoast style i thought.

Missing PS, hmm, i don't think, that this is a reason for a non conservative Outfit.

I agree with the loafer, that's not really a classic dress-shoe. But imho it's an awesome shoe for summer, with or without a suit.
