28. I'd worked as a fashion photographer's assistant for a bit, so I knew what high fashion looked like, but it'd been jeans and a t-shirt from college till recently. New job, wearing khaki's and a polo as the standard IT uniform. Then they asked the IT staff to start wearing dress shirts and I thought "Hah. Two can play that game." It was just a joke at first, but the compliments were so nice that it stuck. Now it's pocket squares, vests, boutonnieres, pocket watches, and some really nice looking ties. People really do treat you differently when you dress nice. Everyone says 'Sir', which is nice, a bit weird and slightly amusing.
