hahaha best post so far in this thread
Good advice, except for the patch pockets.
I hate patch pockets.
Are you actually in Silicon Valley?
If so, I have some recommendations.
No, not in Silicon Valley. We sell technology solutions, ERP software systems, to a pretty blue collar industry. Our clients are usually in the midwest. Our clients usually wear khakis and polo shirts. I have always dressed well, but made sure not to dress to well or get too fancy around my clients. For example: I always wear barrel cuff shirts instead of cuff links. The reason I gravitate toward dark suits, white shirts and solid or grenadine ties and such is that I don't want to stand out. I want to look sharp but wear nothing garish or flashy. I wear very high quality items, but nobody knows their cost except me.
Ironically, my statement was based on your bizarre attacks on others who were responding, quite reasonably, to your initial bizarre post.
This is a weird thread.
First post - after a bit of lurking - and this is the thread I chose to do so on..(.can I kill more than one bird with my stone?)
I skim-read the OP's post and thought it generally a good summary of what I believe has come to be SF 'Group think'.
So I was surprised to see people turn on him.
The advice of not wearing black I thought was bang on. In general, it is not a great colour to wear for all the reasons people give. There is some method behind the madness.
Good forum this! If I may, although there is some merit in SF groupthink, ie .black I do think people take all the rules a bit seriously at times. I sometimes wonder if people tend to hide beind anonymity and that there is a bit of classic internet 'nerd'/over control syndrome going on a bit and that in real life, we can slip here and there.
I like the Australian thread - people seem very grounded. I should confess - I am an Englishman living in Melbourne. Much of what I read interests me.
so why are you stressing what you said????
I wasn't stressing. I just found the whole situation odd.
Many people on Styleforum post about being the only well dressed person at their company or the pressures of overdressing. I had to endure that for years at my office. So I guess this change is welcome.
What are his top 5 favorite bands?
I guess I just don't understand why you are asking. I am aware of some bands that he talks about and what concerts he chooses to attend. I don't really know or even care to know his top 5. I don't really get why you keep asking me these types of questions.
How about restaurant? Does he have a favorite?
What I don't understand from the OP's post (and would appreciate his enlightenment here) is that, if the CEO and OP are such good friends (and for more than a decade), why would there even the be concern, and amazement (as gleaned from the title), at not being sacked for offering the boss friend sartorial advice?
It is obvious that you are fucking with me to amuse yourself. I hope you are amused.
