Utilitarian only. One would not care how they look whilst wearing sunglasses that may show too much thought. We wouldn't want that. Hey, what did I say about those acronyms?

And God help you if you have spiked hair.

The correct collar is a button down. But at minimum, the collar shouldn't look like it might have collar stays in it.

The lot of you.

YOU'RE FIRED!




And do please note I used the only proper font for such a discussion, unlike you riff raff!

Garamond is what most investment banks use in all print peices, with the rank and file using Times New Roman.

For Sans, I've seen News Gothic and Frutiger (yes, a European font by a man named Adrian) for print material and the office drones using Arial (that basterdization of Helvetica (good god, another euro font from the 1960's) inflicted on us all by the beast in Redmond).

Oh, and as for pink. Investment banks are all about the bright neon colors, but they are all doing it in lock-step.

Correct conservative Leatherman attire requires aviator sunglasses, not plastic sunglasses!

WRONG!

The correct answer is, the button down is TRAD, not CBD.

I'm not so sure about that. In DC-lawyer environs BD collar is the norm for all but partners (for whom CBD is less of an issue).

Me thinks the Chicago Manual of Style would disagree. It is DVDs, not DVD's.

Incorrect. Consult your Chicago Manual of Style.

What, you want to look like you're on vacation? CBD is about staying below the radar, not getting written up for wearing your sloth on your sleeve.
