What's your style?

Postby swipe_masta » Thu Apr 18, 2013 12:38 am

There is no need to dress up for my day to day job. The only time I dress up for business is when I get a private event gig like a wedding or something (I'm a freelance photographer). I always kinda wondered about the business suit world...
Anyways, I have more of an alternative prep/casual style.

What's your style of work attire? Can anyone recommend a suit with an edgy look?

Very interesting. I do a little photography myself, but refuse to ever shoot a wedding and I've had some close friends ask.

Typically for work I am collar/no tie. Occasionally with a blazer. Suits are too formal for my environment as I work in government IT. Sometimes I'll dress down with simple polo shirt or guayabera.

As for suits, there is an entire spectrum there. The pertinent question is... what's your budget look like. Expect to pay $600-$1200 for a good suit, and you can double or triple that figure for something custom tailored. In terms of "edgy" I don't know your age, but something from Hugo Boss would work? I am a big Zegna fan myself. If you find yourself in London, stop in on Mr. Boateng on Saville Row. He does "edgy" for a living and is perhaps the best in the world at it.

Best of luck

Jeans and a collar, unless I'm going to court.

In front of customers, usually dressy biz casual (sport coat, slacks, button down shirt). Special occasions (like today) warrant a suit.

When I really have to dress up it's Giorgio Armani collezioni all the way.

Hey, great to see another gearhead around here! That's really impressive that you have both the original 90's ZR1 as well as the C6 generation. I own an '08 Z06 but have always wanted to get behind the wheel of the supercharged big brother. Green with envy, here. :)

Is it weird that I had sort of imagined that's how you'd look? Sort of a cross between Jude Law in Talented Mr. Ripley and Michael Caine in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. >:o]

Usually a pant suit with a conservative blouse that complements the color of the suit. I rotate my suit colors (black, charcoal, pinstripe grey, tan, white) and sometimes mix it up a bit by wearing a skirt (usually a plain black one). I also add flare on random by wearing an "uncommon" blazer color like carnegie blue.

I get my work attire from Ann Taylor, Express, New York & Company, J. Crew, and Banana Republic.
