Recently, I have been going to a lot of high level meetings and finding myself needing to dress up in the Sunday Best. Recently, I purchased a pair of Kenneth Cole Reaction's at DSW - Designer Shoe Wearhouse. They are comfortable after the first day of breaking them in... but only nice pants go with them, so I have a couple of kick pair of slacks.

In fact, I am beginning to enjoy dressing nice. I have always been a tshirt, sweatshirt kind of guy... but, I guess you dress the role you want... and you don't see a lot of successful men not dressing nice. Since, I want to be richer than every one of you MUrons combined, I figure I better dress nice, and play the part.

:evil:

I usually go with a T-shirt and shorts..., but never at the same time.

Around here it's the "dressed down" who have all the money. Ranchers and oilmen and such.

I do what I have to. If it requires a tie I'll wear it. If it requires a suit, I'll wear it and make it look very, very good.

I prefer worn in jeans, tshirt and maybe a fleece pullover with a nice ball cap.

I love to do both. But around here, you get laughed at if you wear nice designer outfits even for a business meeting. It's so, so casual. Flip-flops and shorts otherwise. I miss the NE in that sense. Although, I do get to go to a few black tie affairs once in awhile and dress up on major holidays for dinner.

I don't mind dressing up as long as I don't have to wear a tie.

You're probably best served by encouraging people to judge you by your wardrobe, rather than your personality, skills or abilities.

Some of us aren't quite so limited.

I don't go around wearing business attire but I don't mind when I do. I usually wear jeans with a polo shirt when I'm out.

I am "business casual" at work, jeans and a t-shirt at home. There was a time when I enjoyed wearing a suit and tie to work but those days are behind me. I don't much care about impressing anyone.

In my line of work when I show up in dress clothes people assume I don't know how to do my job. It's the damnedest thing.

Definately not. I wear designer overalls when I go to John Deere.

I avoid wearing dress uniforms at all costs. If there is a meeting that requires I wear something other than my cammie jammies, I find a reason to be somewhere else. I've worn my choker whites three times, my grandmothers funeral, my grandfathers funeral, and a good friends retirement. It is better to feel good than to look good.

Yeah, heh. Funny, most of my associates are Mizzou or KSU fans. I save my venom for you guys.

You get the worst of me. Congrats!

I hear you... I don't mind dressing up, but some meetings I go in whatever... just not to the venture capital meetings. I tend to dress the part of success during those.

Hell no. I'm more of a bue jeans kind of guy. If someone kicks the bucket, I break out the suit.

Never underestimate the power of wearing a tie. It shows that you have a touch of class above your contemporaries.

When I absolutely, positively can't avoid it, I'll clip one on.

I hate dressing up for work, but getting dressed up for a special occasion doesn't bother me in the slightest.

The first thing I do when I get home at night is switch into some shorts.

Yeah, some upper management would have a hard time picking out the winner out of those two.

I rarely dress up, which is good, because when people are used to seeing you in clothes with paint all over them on a daily basis, they tend to think you clean up pretty well...

..sometimes the clothes do not make the man.
