You should not call people stupid if you cannot complete a two-word remark without using proper English.

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.
One can dress very well AND clean up for an interview and not wear a tie.

The applicant wearing the tie better be wearing a good tie. If it's some cheeseball Jerry Garcia tie or paisley crap from 1987 there's no way in hell I'm hiring him.

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.
It also takes an additional 3-5 hours per week prepping / cleaning the shirts, suits, shoes, and/or a large dry cleaning bill.

I always enjoyed it when the big brass or politicians came to our auto plant. We'd all be gathered to listen to their winsome words and they all began the same way; throw the jacket on a chair, rip the tie off, unbutton their shirt, roll up their sleeves and tell us what glorious bastards we were. At least the plant was clean for a few weeks. Asians love suits and the last I checked they were taking the USA to the ...cleaners.

I really wish the cape would come back into style. I think a gentleman in a cape is just so dashing! Add a top hat, just an incredibly put together look!

Don't forget the spats and the walking stick. That sets off the combo.

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.
I don't want to take her to bed. She can just smoke my pole after she gets me coffee in the morning.
