    Me too. It's one of the many reasons I miss having dear old Holdfast around. His departure was a really serious loss to this side of SF.

    Cheers,

    Not making fun of you at all. But to be honest, I think it's a combination of the above, and the fact that I want to wear what I want to wear and what I enjoy, and if other people have a problem with it, will that's just too bad.

    I had a nice conversation about the way you dress and how it correlates to your career's success.

    My position at the office does have some influence on how I dress. I want to dress confidently because I need to command respect from my team. Now don't get me wrong, I am NOT saying you will earn respect just by dressing nicely. But it does help.

    My friend who also had a team of people under him said that in hind sight that he wished that he had dressed better. He never owned a suit even as a mid-level manager while people who worked for him did wear suits everyday. He said he would have been more successful in dealing with his team if the way he dressed was not an issue, it however was.

    I gotta hit the stall.

    Did this actually happen to you? Because that's super weird.

    A2 summed it up. Yeah, its a real shame. We miss you @Holdfast!

    Welp, Clags, at the very least, your non suit wearing agenda has provided us a great discussion on this fine Friday.

    But in Korea, yes? I can't imagine Texans' hassling you like that.

    That's a cool jacket. That outfit really screams for some burgundy/oxblood shoes. I still like it though.

    I'm starting to develop a dislike for anything over a sliver of shirt cuff showing...if that. Not sure why, but my taste is changing.

    Yup, only in Korea, and only when in suits (though Koreans are much more aware of the difference between a suit and an odd jacket and trousers). Though a drunken white person did once come up to me slurring "whyreyouinnasuit?" in a hostile manner there.

    Texans are far too easy going for that jazz.

    IS: it's a good topic of convo. And key is that it's my preference and not something I'd advocate for others. And not something I impose on others, either. What people where and why they wear it is their business.

    I do judge people based on execution. You'll never hear me criticize a person for dressing like a hipster, as long as they aren't dressed like a poorly dressed hipster.

    I like those trousers, but you've got bigger cajones than me to pair them as you did, SugarButch!
