I'm heading to these cities in the near future on business trips and was curious what defines business dress in these cities?

Among other things, is other things, is either like London where black shoes are the rule?

Many thanks.

Many thanks for the input.

I think I will leave the teal suit home this time around
, but this helps a lot in terms of knowing what to pack.

There is no need to dimple your tie in Paris.

In Madrid you can see a lot of guys wearing loafers with their suits. I have been here since the early 90s, and it still looks wrong to me.
Also, in business environments: nobody (or almost nobody) feels that it is tacky to have visible monograms on the shirts (chest or cuff) and at least one working jacket sleeve button ubuttoned. Maybe one of the main differences that I notice compared to, for example, Germany and the U.S.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
