Wearing a tie at work when no one else does - Page 6
Styleforum Top Picks
I have worn suits and ties of varying formality just about every day for the last two years. Never seems to be commented upon, but it is important to get the degree of formality right - a business suit does not work for a family BBQ or a walk in the country, but a linen or tweed suit (depending on the weather) with an appropriate tie, or bow tie, looks great and will not make yourself or your companions ill at ease. Similarly, when not at work, you can leave your tie on, and swap your jacket for a cardigan for a nice, smart/casual look
I wear a tie every day to work, the one day I didn't (have a cold and a swolen throat) it was the one day I needed to. Most of the guys in my office don't except to meetings, so there is a certain amount of taking them on and off.
I agree with the statement earlier dressing well includes fitting in with your surroundings.
I don't always wear a suit to work though, today for instance I'm wearing cotton trousers and a jacket, still look smarter than most of the guys though.
