Are you circus folk?
Not liking the weather here right now - yesterday it was way too warm, now it was really chilly all of a sudden.
Got a new shirt in the mail today. TM Lewin St. James collar. What do you all think of the fit? Fresh out of the box, I starched it after I tried it on.
What do you all think of wearing this to work? Remember, I work in a "jacket prohibited" law firm. I'll swap out the pants for some nicer tan pants, but you get the idea.
^ That tie is too wide, much to wide, to be worn without a jacket, especially given your proportions. I also think wide spread collars work best unbuttoned (I know you have to wear a tie) or with a jacket (which I know you can't wear). I would say go with a thinner tie width and rock it as best you can.
Actually, I hate to pile on, solid white shirts look off to me without a) a summery fit to go with it and b) without a suit/jacket
sorry bro. I would say get shirts with small patterns and wear solid ties to liven up your work uniform
TKE, I swear this would go so much better with just rep ties and OCBDs. Everything else just has too formal a feeling about it to wear without a jacket. It's a shame they won't let you wear one.
Blazer is flax linen, hence the wrinkles.

I have never heard of a 'jacket prohibited' dress policy. What sort of kooky experimental place is it?
The tie is one of the slimmest ties brooksbrothers makes. The only slimmer tie I have is a "skinny" tie from thetiebar and that tie is way to skinny. Any ideas of where I could look for better ties?
LOL. I've explained this so many times.
The weirdest law firm on God's green Earth.
yeah - I don't haunt this threak on a frequent basis - sorry.
my advise is quit the job as soon as possible.
find someplace to work where people know how to behave in public.
life is to short to spend it working with teh cra cra crowd.
about the ties - doesn't J. Crew offer ties that are not wide but not skinny? I'm not sure but it seems like they did a season or so ago.
He is an intern. Probably shouldn't be wearing a jacket regardless. I hate to be a dick but if an intern walked into my office wearing a jacket and a two tone Rolex we would have a little talk...
dressing according to some inane company policy is one of the lesser degrading things one has to endure during an internship. I'd suggest getting some slimmer - not skinny - ties, too. (3.15inch)
oh and you think TKE has it bad? let digmenow tell you about that.
...about his impeccable taste in fashunz and if he knows the secret igent handshake, too?
I work at a corporate lawfirm. Many of the attorneys there have been rated as "NJ Super lawyers" by the magazine "NJ super lawyer". Its a very well respected firm so I'm not quitting anytime soon. I'm an intern and hoping to continue there as an intern/summer associate during my time in law school. When I get hired as an associate I can wear a jacket/suit if I'd like to.
I don't understand? Why would you "have a talk" with an intern that walks in wearing a jacket and a two tone Rolex? You should be thrilled. You should want your interns to look as professional (and successful) as possible. It gives a better feel to the office, especially if potential clients are walking through.
