I think it is dreadful the extended madness goes around the office world that states the needed to dress smart casual, otherwise, we are told, clients will look at us in disbelief and think you are a bunch fucking slobs that don’t do any work. The necessary extension to this is that dressing better means that we are more professional. I would like to see the peer-reviewed research that shows this astonishing fact.
As a slap in a face to all this corporate nonsense I suggest that we comply with the rules and dress smart casual, but have all our garments full of food stains. Nobody said it was stainless smart casual! I wonder how would that rate on the corporate the professional scale?
