I'm an attorney now, but waited tables at Olive Garden when I was in college and OG is still the most formal everyday dress code I've ever had in a job. Unless I have to be in court, jeans and a t-shirt or button down is what I wear to work 90% of the time. In fact my entire white collar professional career has been business casual or just full casual.

When I go to court it's a suit and tie or blazer/sport coat with a tie. If it wasn't for the lack of a jacket at OG, I would argue that black pants and white collared shirt with a tie is more formal than the blue or gray suits I wear to court.

Wigs were a plus back when men didn’t regularly wash their hair.

u/masterofshadows Oct 02 '22

Sort of, it was more about fashion than many would admit though. France was basically the powerhouse of fashion back in the day and Louis the 13th wore one to cover up his balding. So naturally everyone else followed suit.

Yeah no. That article is definitely 100% wrong. After covid i think office fashion trends have shifted significantly judging by myself and all my office mates. I used to really dress up for the office thinking it was the thing to do to look like you belong and deserve promotions and shit. After covid though, now i dont give a fuck. I'll go to work in fucking sweatpants if i want to. I can still do the same work just as well. Dressing up only counts if you're in a profession where you are seen and your dress is a part of the look of the company. For us office drones, i and all my colleagues realized it simply doesn't fucking matter.

17

u/Bartmoss_Forever Oct 02 '22

It doesn’t matter anyway. Does dressing well determine how good you are at your job, or how you conduct yourself as a person? No, and as a matter of fact who determined that expensive suits were “more professional” anyway?

39

u/Mcoov Oct 02 '22

or how you conduct yourself as a person?

It can. I would advise against coming to work wearing the cum-stained sweatpants and t-shirt that says "Bad Bitch 69" on it. Surprisingly enough it can make other people uncomfortable.

Two different incidents I witnessed combined together for emphasis.

One was a guy with grey sweats that were very dirty and stained (not necessarily cum but who tf knows).

One was a woman with a pink tracksuit that had “Bad Bitch 69” stitched across the back and the sleeves of the jacket.

Someone did a study where they tested folks, then gave folks a white coat and tested them again with similar questions. Half were told it was an artist’s jacket, others a doctor’s coat. The first half scored better in artistic areas than their first time. The latter half scored better in science/math sections than their first time. There are other examples that dressing well improves confidence, and other such things. Although not what was intended with the original quote, there is some merit to “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.”

Depends on when you worked there. I waited tables there from 2013-2015 and they had moved on from the white shirt and ties to just black button downs by the time I got there. No one cared about creases, we didn’t wear ties, and we didn’t have to roll silverware.

I knew a guy who dressed like this last year, I asked him why and he said "I don't feel comfortable in jeans and a t shirt or other casual clothes... I'd rather wear what I feel comfortable in and now I'm at a point in my life where I feel like I can do that without caring what others think." I had so much respect for him, he wasn't dressing like this for attention or to look sexy or anything. He just liked it

Dressing up is fun. I wanted to wear suits when I was 5 years old. And guess what, I still do. And 5 year old me would be absolutely thrilled. And I care more about following through for that homie, rather than some judgmental asshole I'll never see again. Ive been called all sorts. I'm over that shit. Call me whatever you want. I'm stronger than that now.

Do it! At least wear suit pants and shirt, a tie maybe, you can roll your sleeves up and untuck the shirt for more casual situations, throw on a irish/scottish sweater over the shirt and tie if you want, lots of ways to dress classy without looking like a dick. If you have the right shaped head for an irish cap wear one too,

It's 100% comfort. I actually really like the dress shirt and vest look, and while they aren't T-shirt and sweatpants cheap, it's not really an expensive outfit unless you're constantly getting it dirty/worn down.

The problem is comfort. In the summer you'll be hot as fuck anywhere that isn't air conditioned, and in the winter it's not warm enough. Also its kinda constricting, which I personally hate.

Plus American fashion.. If you walk around wearing this in your daily life people will give you weird looks. If you walk around in Tokyo, people will either think it's for work or you're just trying to be stylish.

I would wear the outfit in the OP, except mine would probably be much brighter all around, maybe a pink or salmon shirt with a plum or eggplant vest and pencil skirt combo.

Could throw a bowtie and matching shoes in there but that's bumping right up against the school uniform look doing that, and I'm not about drawing that kind of attention considering at my height I could easily be mistaken for a truant middle schooler. 😑

I'd LOVE to be able to wear clothes like this all the time, But:

1.) I'm fat 2.) I lack the money 3.) I work with dogs/pets all day and sweat constantly, nice clothes would get RUINED

Man, I miss dressing up. One thing I love about old movies is how everyone looked so nice all the time. Also hats. I miss a good fedora or a snazzy cowboy hat and a good pair of boots.

I honestly loved putting my suit on, my over coat and accompanying umbrella when I travelled into London. Felt bloody awesome. Way happier wearing sweats and doing the same thing in MN! Although an excuse to get dressed up is great!

you can get a good tailored suit for $500 idk where you got $10k from.

u/yeet-the-parakeet Oct 01 '22

I think he's talking about bespoke (where they make a suit from scratch based on your exact body measurements) as opposed to tailored (where an existing suit is altered to fit correctly).

At that price I doubt you’re getting all the bells and whistles like the flower that shoots water. If you’re gonna bare bones it like that you’re really defeating the purpose of wearing a suit at all.

Exactly. And you can wear extremely comfortable suits if they’re fitted right. I love dressing formally but it does help to be fit, tbh, when it comes to comfort.

If your $1,500 suit only lasts 6 months before you need to replace the whole fucking thing, you got ripped off. Good suits might need to be repaired once in a while, but they’re not made of papier-mâché.

There is just so much misinformation in this post it’s hard to know where to start.

Good suit fabric will last decades with bare minimum of care. My bespoke tuxedo is going on 12 years now and looks as good as the day it was delivered. My oldest bespoke jacket is 15 years old and I wore it last week for a conference. They’re also some of the most comfortable clothes I own because they’re made to my exact measurements and the tailor knows the right kind of fabrics for the climate I live in.

And you don’t need seven suits. Even if you have to wear a suit everyday for work. Depending where you live you can have between 3 and 6. If your climate changes a lot you need 3 cooler weather fabrics and 2 warm weather fabrics and one black suit or tuxedo.

You absolutely won’t need to replace suits every year, let alone every six months. A classically tailored suit that isn’t of a current fashion will essentially last as long as your waistline provided you haven’t gone for something fashionable like the overly baggy suits of the 90s or the ultra short/tight suits of more recent vintage.
