Boss had everything except a tie and a jacket. Another coworker had everything except a tie. I am posting on waywrn now, albeit it's the same stuff.

I really need to start shopping again.

if you consistantly outdress them, they'll just get used to it.

If you out dress your boss and are worrying about it on an online forum, then stop out dressing your boss.

On the other hand, worrying about things on an online forum gave us a 1037-page (and counting) thread, so maybe just keep doing what you do.

I don't know what possessed me to do it, but I just posted a huge missive about jackets in response to a typical, unanswerably broad question.

Not sure if it's worth advertising (accept maybe to invite scorn/"feedback"), but I thought it might useful to some of the n00bs who wander in here.

Basically, if they understand you are an eccentric that loves clothes and not someone using clothing to put on airs, it's all good. I've learned now to make it clear upon entering any new workplace that I'm a hobbyist. From what I know of your new workplace, I'm willing to bet that your boss will receive your sartorial predilections well.

Nice, TOTP.  You might want to flag the menswear lounge thread, too--there are some points for good discussion in your post.

Wait, @Cao Cao, new job? When did this happen?

Noodles, you should have just taken off your tie and stuck it in your pocket. You would have been fine. Not StyFo approved, but well within the range of attire of your colleagues.
