Business dress: Basic principles for men
After a recent research into their workwear to companies, I have discovered that there is quite a variety of clothing cultures. From casual to formal and everything in between. There are organizations with strict regulations, there are those that deal more smoothly. In some companies, a shift has taken place in recent years due to changes and prevailing market trends. The suit is made for a nice pair of trousers, such as a chino with trousers and nice jeans with a shirt. Optionally, in the cold seasons, a pull-over is added. The suit and the tie come here at the moment that a customer visit of the formal meeting is planned.
This shift in dress code is for employees of these companies. In fact, clothing codes are generally interpreted very differently. But those who adhere to a number of basic principles in business attire can move confidently between colleagues, customers and relations. With a formal dress code you are expected to wear a package and the following rules are:
– Wear your shoes in the same color as your belt.
– Socks must be long apart.
– Clothing has to fit, that is to say: The sleeves of the jacket must not be too long or the mag.
– Wear a shirt with long sleeves and do not syrup them.
– Make sure you are always ironed.
– Keep the pockets preferably empty.
The use of color is recommended, however, be modest and careful. Screamy colors do not consistently deliver messages as you want. Blue, gray and black are abstract colors. This stands for reliability, competence and authority.
Do not show undergarments.
No suit is worn with an informal dress code. Important to know is that a ‘casual look’ is quickly able to:
– Avoid busy prints of imprints. They distract and make your outfit more ‘free time’ than business.
– Go minimalist with accessories and cover tattoos and piercings. Tattoos and piercings are not recommended for showing professional look.
Do not wear sports shoes, sandals slippers and always look for polished shoes. Damaged or unpolished shoes make the whole outfit unworthy. In addition, you give the signal that you are a person who is not responsible for your own appearance.. Not a plus!
Clothing may not be broken. Make sure that a garment has no loose stitching. Let your ripped jeans on the workdays in the closet.
Go for at least a polo shirt and if you want to play safe, wear it in your pants.
Avoid short sleeves and shorts.
Many companies have not recorded the desired clothing code in writing. It is not uncommon for the employee to find out what clothing culture there is on the shop floor. Rules on clothing can be considered to be curative, but in practice they are often very welcome. Where it can sometimes be difficult to clear the fashion clothing code and external presentation within the company, a workshop offers a solution!
