    It's this: 王様の仕立て屋~Sarto Finito~. Stories are basically about a remarkably talented young Japanese tailor in Italy who helps people with their lives using his skills as a tailor (i.e. you can fix anything by wearing the right things). Passable entertainment that's not to be taken seriously.

    I'm only aware of Chinese translations, though.

    Wear flashy stuff and the flashy stuff will be noticed. Wear stylish stuff and you will be noticed. World of difference.

    I think that statement is one of those that looks good on paper, but is somewhat untrue. My experience shows that anything that stands out gets complimented by women. Whether they truly like it, or it is some sort of submissive psychological thing is another conversation, yeah, the whole notice the man, not the clothes isn't as true and tidy as many think. I'd be curious to know if it was 100% true how many people would shift their wardrobe to suit (pun).

    I'm in IT in the South and can, sadly, say that that's quite accurate. I've been ridiculed for ironing my shirts daily and polishing my shoes weekly.

    Business casual as described in the OP kind of reminds me of 6th form college or wearing a school uniform after school. It looks immature and clueless. Then again though I'm often in these monolithic banking headquarters and the whole culture smacks of high school. All the politicking and the cool kids and the dorks and the regimented lifestyle and way of doing things.

    Yea I agree I've seen a couple guys in full suits (including tie clip worn very high) at 'nice' clubs and bars. This past weekend a friend commented on how block parties are also victims of this lol

    I have a few good friends that work in the fitness industry, and it seems that whenever they aren't in gym shorts and a sleeveless t-shirt they are considered dressed up.
