Yeah, honestly, even when I worked in a call centre, one of the OVERNIGHT agents would come to work looking sharp as hell every day. He was pretty much completely alone most nights, but still, he'd wear a nice suit, nice shoes, tie and all. Hell, some days he'd show up in a three-piece, meanwhile, even people who worked days couldn't be bothered to change out of their gym clothes 9 times out of 10. I never thought he was over-dressing, and neither did anyone else. I just thought that's how he is, and he looked sharp as hell. I think it's all about context. When you show up to work wearing ratty jeans and a t-shirt every day, yes, you will look like you're "trying to impress someone" when you show up in a suit one day. But when people see you every day wearing a jacket and tie, they eventually just accept it as a part of your personality.
