A friend of mine recently got fired even though his performance at work was just fine. He was the best dressed person at the office, in his imposing bespoke double breasted or three piece suits, always wearing a pocket square, a seven fold tie and bespoke shirts from T&A as well as some highly polished Lobb brogues. In fact at meetings clients often confused him with the head of the company and thought that his Boss was merely his assistant.
Nevertheless his performance was excellent and he signed more contracts than any other employee.
A few weeks ago his Boss asked him to come see him, made him sit down and told him that he didn't appreciate the way he dressed and that it was making him personally feel uncomfortable.
Since he was within the rules of the company dress code my friend ignored his Boss' request to dress down and two weeks later he received a letter telling him that he was getting fired, no clear reason was mentioned.
Now do you think this is fair? Should someone not be able to dress as they please because it hurts some guy's ego?
