I am happy to be here. I have been in IT for 8 years. I have served in the United States Marine Corps for 5 of those years. The other three have been various roles until now.
I am on my third week into an amazing dream job that I have always wanted to end up in. I stated out as a Tactical Data Systems Specialist in the Marine Corps. Upon seperating, finished my degree and became a Systems Engineer at Honda. I have since moved and got more credentials into IT Security.
The company that I am working for is very "old school" per say in the dress code. I am required by dress code to wear a suit and tie everyday besides Friday which it is suit pants no tie (jacket optional). Though I see directors wearing suits 5 days a week.
I currently own two suits much of which I can change the look of rather easily. #1 Medium to light Charcoal pinstripe and #2 Navy pinstripe.
I have changed the look through black/brown shoes, belts and watch bands, and different shirt/tie combinations.
The thing I am affraid of is the lack of shirt and tie options that I currently have.
I have 3 tailored white shirts, 2 Blue stripped shirts (one with white collar) a pink/grey stripped, and a lavender shirt.
I have maybe 7 different ties I change the look but I am wondering with these two suits what would be the best option for creating more looks?
Also, I want to add another suit in the next month or so and have no idea in what direction to go. Solid? Color?
Thanks for any and all help in advance. I will be posting pictures of some looks that I have this evening with my grey suit. (Navy suit is getting tailored again)
