CBD stands for Conservative Business Dress.  Plain suit, solid shirt, conservative tie, conservative shoes.  Wear it to a board meeting, or an interview – somewhere you need to look well put together but not stand out in any way.  Just make sure your shoes are polished better than mine, and remember that when there’s no interesting pattern or color to grab people’s attention, they’re more likely to pay attention to how well your clothes fit.

Shirt: Luciano Barbera, bought secondhand online, $22
Tie: Brooks Brothers, discount store, $10
