HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 2291

That's two Wall Street references this week. This may be something I need to see.

His book Straight to Hell is snidely amusing in a mischievous, frat boy kind of way. Imagine if Eric Stratton "rush chairman, damned glad to meet you!" went to Wall Street instead of Med School.

@Dennis Walter, serious question... what do you use in your hair? :slayer:

 

Serious answer @Caustic Man: most of the times i wash it with cold water and just comb it afterwards. Sometimes i use a black wax paste, which isn´t sticky at all, but keeps things in shape.

Serious answer, @Caustic Man - cold water and a comb most of the times. Every now and then i use a black waxe past made by my barber. It´s not sticky at all, smells great and keeps things in place.

That article is fascinating in a hilarious (and sad) kind of way. It is interesting that, according to this person, what you wear is so important on Wall Street. I mean, we all know that what you wear is important in many contexts, but he tells of people being publicly mocked in full school yard fashion for wearing certain things. I can't think of many situations where this would actually happen.

His article is intentionally over-the-top. Basically, he is recommending learning what your career field expects, master it, then expand according to your position and fashion sense. I view it as more realistic than sad. If your career demands dressing seriously then don't show up for the big meeting dressed like Thurston Howell III. Show up as Don Draper. Doesn't mean you can't have fun and act out a little when applicable.

 

I would love to dress daily like my profile pic, put on the green tweed with subtle orange windowpane and do the Lord Grantham-thing, briskly walking my estate in Wellingtons, trusty hound at my side, servant on call and ready with a fine Single Malt.  :smarmy:

 

I guess, to wrap-up, I like to follow Michael  Anton's (Nicholas Antongiavanni) closing advice in his book "The Suit." To paraphrase: Dress as conservatively as you have to and as dandified as you can get away with.

Thank you, Roy Al!

FYI - I can see the dreaded GS building from my cubicle at work - walk by the place often on my lunch hour if I visit Brookfield Place.

@smittycl, very good points. I don't mean sad in the sense that he is a sad person. I mean that it's sad that people in certain contexts publicly shame one another in the ways he described in the anecdotes to the article. Giving advise is one thing, but being snarky for its own sake is another. I do get what you are saying though. One ought to dress appropriately according to the context.

Assistance requested!  I received the comment today from a non-StyFo associate that the jacket/trou combo was too busy.  Thoughts?

 

 

Hi,

 

Very nice outfit! Could you point out to me who makes the jacket and trousers?

 

Thank you!

Hi,

 

What SuitSupply suit is that? I don't recall seeing this cut; fabric looks too "dressy" and lapels appears too wide to be Havana! 

 

Tie looks good, for sure!

Today wearing: another untipped shantung tie and wool with wool and silk pocket square

Thank you for your kind words. The jacket is Brooks Brothers and the trousers are Epaulet Walts.
