Happily sticking to khaki and golf shirt conformity. Nothing done in that garb can be done any better in anachronistic vestigial ramient. What the heck purpose does a tie serve. If it was winter and it was a scarf, maybe. Suit fabrics provide minimal protection against the elements, and the whole deal focuses on appearance vice capability. How good can a suit be?...lawyers and used car salesmen wear them!
IMO, clothes are gear. Wear that which supports function.
Incedently, this old fart is too old to be attempting the peacock process where appearance is concerned.
Can't trust a slicky-boy!
"What the heck purpose does a tie serve"
it is the last remanent of the bows and furbelows of the 16th and 17th centuries..It also is a demonstration of power by the folk that force such silliness on their employers...
The last company that I worked for that required the stupid things got exactly what they demanded....one tie, worn every day and washed not dry cleaned...(shrunk up pretty well over time) Looked absolutely ridiculous and was shucked for the junk drawer in the desk each time I left the building. I wanted one with a nekid lady on it but my spouse drew the line at my rebellion.
You wear khaki and golf shirts and want to know what use a tie is? ( BTW if you are going to use words like raiment at least spell them correctly).
What use is khaki and golf shirts in an air conditioned office or car. If you work in a hot humid city the best dress is nothing but a speedo. Are you really saying people should wear speedo's to work?
You argue against style and then proceed to use style to determine what you wear.
