this is perfectly acceptable isn't it. why does it feel not acceptable
but I always keep my suit jacket on
probably to hide the inevitable sweat patches
This is ok when you walk in but on the way out they'll see your arse.
You've not thought this through.
Just waltz in and go 'Yeah, so here it is. Would you like me to retract the foreskin so you can properly see the bell?'
who's never had a job or been to an interview before. I don't mind someone turning up in a jacket/shirt/no tie combo, but a shirt/tie/no jacket combo just looks weird.
shirt/tie/no jacket will make you look like a shift manager at Dixon's
For a bus driver.
Jacket wearing penoids!
I went to an interview in jeans and a jumper last week.
if you're wearing a tie then you're going for the corporate vibe so you have to wear a jacket, tie and shirt with no jacket is work experience.
If you're going casual then stick a jumper on top of the shirt
i can think of plenty of situations where a shirt and tie, possibly even with sleeves rolled up(!) would be appropriate on its own
and I can conclude: no jacket, no job.
what if it's warm?
i got a job with one of them.... i think... probably had nothing to do with it
just wear shirt/tie and smart trousers/shoes for interviews. And I have got those jobs.
number of interviews: some
number of jobs secured: some
I think those stats speak for themselves
and I can tell you they didn't get the job on that factor. We're a really relaxed office as far as dress code goes but not wearing a suit just looks lazy and uncommitted.
Wasn't the highest-ranking job in the world, but seriously...
Didn't offer him the job. Bumped into him at ATP a few weeks later. Was awkward.
blue, slightly fitted suit
maroon paisley pocket square.
looked fit as fuck
Black belt (10th dan)
Maroon pants and black socks with maroon toe and heel (just in case)
Found out this morning I didn't get it. Probably should have showed them my pants
Because of what they're wearing. It's such arrogant, broken rationale, it suits the world of work perfectly.
