See that awkward, uncomfortable look on my face? ┬áThat’s the look that says, “I don’t like this ‘smart casual’ dress code and would really feel more comfortable in this outfit with a tie.”



Jacket: Brooks Brothers, thrifted, $20
Shirt: Brooks Brothers, bought secondhand online, $40
Pants: Corbin, thrifted, $5
Shoes: Florsheim, thrifted, $15

Total: $80
If I’d paid retail prices: $1400 or more

  1. Nice ensemble, but yes, it does look incomplete without the necktie. Would wearing one occasionally be seen as a slap in the face by your superiors (and out of step with the new firm culture)? If not, why not wear a tie anyway two or three days a week? Nothing wrong with continuing to look sharp(er).

    Best Regards,

      Yes, I already do that a couple of days a week, but I do have to go without a tie occasionally to keep things in balance.
