On the first day of the project I came in wearing dress pants without belt loops. Pants had suspender buttons and silk braces. I was told to change and come back on account of the braces.
Second day I was told to remove my plain, white pocket square and ruby cufflinks.
Third day I was told to remove plain silver cufflinks, and the other party commented that my suits were "too well tailored" and that he could supply me with a gift card to buy factory "sack" suits at the local department store.
Today I was told that he didn't notice my American Flag lapel pin before, but I would not be able to wear it. The American Flag lapel pin is in waving position, with all 50 stars on the flag in 14k gold.
I am going to ghost write a letter to HIS supervisor letting him know about his flagrant anti-Americanism. How could he not stand for me supporting the men and women defending our country and our great nation that allows people like him to engage in free enterprise?
If I am still not allowed to wear even my American flag lapel pin, I will not be working for the project anymore, and I will encourage as many people as I can to not consult there and lobby hard against any bailouts they ask for in the future. I will buy the billboard across the street letting everyone know, "Do not shop there!"
Why is it that some companies want there contractors and "lower level" employees to wear baggy dress shirts, poorly tailored suits, barrel cuffs as opposed to cuff links, etc?
