I would expect pre sales reps to be dressed in suit and tie. Depends on who you're selling to but anywhere CBD definitely.

Are MJ Bale that good? 

 

I sell to technical people.  They may wear suits, oftentimes they'll wear a polo shirt with slacks. I've had meetings with guys wearing jeans and t-shirt. So the idea here is to NOT look slick which will really take away from your message (i.e., they'll perceive you as being form over substance).

As I said above; trying not to look too formal which will only erode my credibility.

I know its lame advice but how about you wear what you feel comfortable in that still looks professional?  You say you sell to technical people so if you know your product and the technical details of its application and can discussion how it might improve their respective environment/configuration are they likely to even notice your attire, even more so because they are technical people? 

 

All im saying is how about you get a suit which looks good on you and worry about the formality of it later?  For example a great suit with a nice shirt, unbuttoned top button and no tie looks a lot less formal regardless of the quality or nature of the suit. Slickness (in a manner that may erode credibility and remind people of gordon gecko) is always going to come from how you wear it and what you wear it with - rather than the suit itself (for the most part).

 

Maybe a suit isn't for you yet, a sportscoat with the right trousers and shirt can still look professional without being too formal.

Couldn't agree more.  It sounds like a suit minus a tie would be appropriate and provide the most comfort.

So what are you up to today?

I've been renovating a mates house this am. After going up to shop and getting bacon for breakie with eggs and coffee and toasted english muffins. Yum. Listening to Gospel on PBS. Its as close as I get to church these days. Then in garden after lunch. Shed speakers on PBS. Then cleaning up gym in shed and servicing bicycle. Then instead of using either I sneakily sat down in the sun with coffee and read a a few papers including the Pravda/Govt. Gazette and The Age - nothing much in either. Then some washing. Put some shirts aside to alter sleeve buttons tonight in front of the box. A bit of running around in car. Back inside cleaning. Playing 2 of my Top 10 Live albums. Turned up to 11. Willy de Ville and now WAR - especially Slippin' Into Darkness and Cisco Kid. Is there any better funk. Putting on some roast beef and spuds and peas and roast tomatoes. Nothing flash at all for a change. Started on the cheap shiraz.. Looking forward to watching Jack Irish on TV. Hardly ever watch "live" TV now with downloads and iview etc hooked up to TV.

WIWT Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Old cord shirt blue, Johnny Cash film freebie T shirt black, Levis and on feet the Portias.

From the sounds of things, I'd probably just wear a decent OCBD with a modern fitting pair of jeans or chinos.

Doing a constitutional law paper on the s 51(i) re trade and commerce. After that, I have a conveyancing letter for my dip prac (late), a shitty reflection for my dip prac (late), an assignment for commercial law and then another paper for constitutional law. 

 

I also need to get my shit (resume) together for a couple of local jobs and clean the conjunctivitis out of my beagle's eye. 

 

 

Todays get up:

- Marle grey tshirt

- Levis 501s

You might be over thinking it. Just go down to Bunnings and get some of the cheap modular stuff and install it yourself. Its pretty simple. Or a simple rack on wheels. Then you can shift it around.

Oli - don't you get a 10% penalty for each day late?

Out to a friend's daughter's first birthday party today - big wog family, fantastic food as always, pulled pork, black sesame slaw, fresh prawns, chilli chicken, boutique beers. Great comfort food for the shitty weather here. Also, can officially state seasons have turned in Sydney as I moved all my summer/linen/cotton jackets and chinos into storage and woolen jackets, cords etc. back into main wardrobe. Punxsutawney PoP has spoken.

Yesterday arvo had some free tickets to a Fashion Week event, chicks' clothes only but free drinks in the bar made the trip worthwhile. Always good to see what's going on anyway as some of the trends come down to menswear. With women's clothes I'm even less of an expert than men's but IMO some horrible stuff (neoprene sheets with hole cut in stapled on head etc.) but also some very good also. As an aside the models all looked underage and very underfed poor things. Judging by this show white and teal will be big next S/S season; good news I may get some more wear out of my Colonel Sanders seersucker jacket next year.

Not for a generalist degree like law.

The diploma of legal practice is pass/fail (thank christ).
