Are you the best dressed person at your job?

Humbly speaking, are you the best person at your job? Do you stand out? Or others lack of attention/care to their dress make you look like you are "trying too hard"? Do you have a dress code?

I am retired. But when I worked I usually was, especially when I
worked in Tech. I began in Tech when it was usual for management/
marketing types to wear suits or coat and tie in any case. By wearing
Norman Hilton and Chipp and the like, I was better dressed than the
average Nordstrom shopper, which was the norm.

The one before this.....I was up there.

Sure. I'm working in tech which means shorts and t-shirt, jeans and sweatshirts. Anyone who puts just a little effort into clothes will be better dressed.

I always am; hardly anybody else even tries. A colleague sometimes refers to me as, "the best dressed man in transit." Said colleague is having John Di Pietro make a suit for him and I recently gave him a navy grenadine Sam Hober necktie that I bought when there was 75 % more of me and thus is now too long, so he could put in a good showing on occasion if he gets some better shoes.

Dressing 'well' as a I actually often makes me ridiculous, but dressing otherwise would make me feel like a stranger in my own skin, which is an unpleasant enough place for me to be as it is.

The dress code at my office is essentially business casual, aka, no shorts, jeans and such. Being that my employer is a somewhat conservative institution, it is perfectly acceptable to wear jackets and ties in the office and I take advantage. There are a few people who genuinely make the effort to dress well around my office so I would say that I am in the upper echelons of well dressed men at work.

Precisely. The answer to your question is probably: "Yes, on a good day" for a lot of members of this board. Its like asking if you would beat a frog on an IQ test.
+1 It's actually harder to be the best-dressed person in my neighbourhood rather than work, since where I live there are people who care about their appearance. Women especially.

For those in tech, are you wearing sport coats? Do you think that you stand out in an off-putting way?
