The necktie is definitely something that should go the way of the dinosaur. It's too bad that this day and age that people still judge others' ability on the way they dress. I guess some people feel that they cannot perform unless they are wearing their Superman costume (a suit) to work. Some so-called 'leadership' or 'executive' types believe that being well dressed masks the fact that one is incompetent. I still dress clean and comfortably, but I don't need a costume to do my job. Besides, if you follow the news, it would appear that most of the real criminals are wearing suits CEO (Chief Embezzlement Officer), CFO (Chief Fraud Officer)...etc.

It's a lie. Watch and see what they wear when it's time to "right size". Unless they are out the door too it will be suit with tie. Guaranteed!

American culture has become self-indulgent, self-centered, lazy, and dumbed down.

Why not the clothes, even at work?

The way a percentage of Americans dress in public should be embarrassing to them, but they are so ignorant that they do not realize how aweful they look.

It's about time! It costs money to purchase suits, sport coats and ties that you rarely wear any place else beside work. When I was a kid, every year my dad was at Carson Pierre Scott getting a new suit, new shirts, ties and pair of wingtips. Meanwhile, we were riding around in a rusted out Chevy and eating casseroles.

So if you are conducting interviews who would you hire ( two similar resumes).

A). Well dressed, clean hair trimmed in nice suit and tie. Or
B). Man smelling of smoke and or BO. Sloppy, unclean clothes no tie?

I don't know about you but I'm hiring applicant A. Well groomed = great worker.

Golly Gee, Gomer! You sure are good at making a pointless argument! You compare a Hobo to a guy in a suit?

Weren't we talking about ditching the ties? NOT recruiting the homeless or the nearest beach bums!

Let me guess...you own a suit store?

Because Dan, we all know 23 year old chicks will fall madly in bed with every middle aged, balding guy with a muffin top. They are lusting after your Honda Odyssey.

No.

You would be surprised at the number of recent college grads coming in for interviews in flip flops and reeking of smoke.

Are you afraid you won't get that job interview because you are a hobo with no tie?

It must be tough not having a steady income during the winter when it is too cold to beg for change.

How does that jive with getting rid of the tie? If they don't 'reek' of smoke, but are not wearing a tie, do you still turn them away?

What if they are wearing a tie...but reek of smoke? I think you have a smoking issue...and might be hiring people for all the wrong reasons.

Actually "Dave", there is some logic to that. Uniforms and professional dress tend to lead to a more professional and productive atmosphere.

A perfect example is you. You don't wear a suit and are unemployable and use "your" instead of the proper contraction "you're" or the full "you are".

But then I digress…
