If your boss is a well groomed, symmetric faced, tall, younger man in his late 20s or 30s, he could get away with pretty much anything - even donning the occasional black suit for work... somewhat like what this guy does in the picture:
Its fascinating to note from the above exchanges that advices about what not to wear (such as the black suits, blue pants, etc) see their rationales originate mainly from the visual resemblances to people of certain professions, such as that of funeral workers, security guards, and chauffeurs. Is the fear of "looking like them
" so strong that it triumphed all elements of quality found in these articles of clothing?
And lets not kid ourselves - a dashing young man in a well tailored black
suit, no matter how sartorially "criminal" it is, will elicit admirable sighs from the fair sex, and enviable grumbles from older, balding men in navy plaid jackets and Prince of Wales check pants. Sure, you could get people like
to write write paragraphs about how "wrong" it is to wear black suits, but does honey badger give a shit? Likely not.Edited by daspianist - 12/1/11 at 1:31pm
