We know how big of a personality you have, Brad. In this case, you are unique and your opinion or philosophy is not applicable wholly.
And no one is talking about suppressing your inner diva. A plain, well fitted suit can show a lot of personality by pairing it with f tie, PS, and shoe choice, no matter how subtle or loud the print, texture, hand, or design is.
But this is a stupid topic because we know how much personality the group of SF members have compared to the co-worker in the next cubicle. This topic is more about what I should buy within the SF context that is internet approved rather than how can I fit into my workplace. The last thing we want is to fit in.
