In consulting, suits were worn daily, with tie or without, depending on clients. Most colleagues actually had black suits and white shirts (mostly German ones).
Then, when I joined a media group, it was VERY casual. Some colleagues were even wearing football jerseys at the office. Most people wore jeans and a polo/shirt. I went for suits/odd jackets with a tie most days because I enjoyed it and we had a free dress code.
That was 100% my opinion of suits in the early 2000s. The overwhelming majority of people around me that wore suits were people that needed (usually desperately) something from me. That's no longer the case. Now that even those people are dressing more casually, the only people around me in suits are those that want to be."Suits are the uniform of the powerless now."...is a pretty bold statement.
Like a strange animal. Most told me: "you know, you have can lose the suit"How did they perceive or treat you when you first joined the office?
