for people who have to dress up at work

alright, so completely off the topic of MMA.

i don't find occasion to dress up in a suit very often... prefering to work in a tanktop and shorts most days, and throw some nice jeans and a dress shirt on for days i have to meet with clients, or one of my three suits when it's a big meeting.

So the issue is this... all three of my suits are designer digs, that i had fully tailored at my tailor. That is to say... i usually have people do this shit for me but; i bought a nice Armani sports jacket for more casual dress attire over the weekend -- when i want to wear jeans and a sports coat to a meeting -- and it came with the 'tail'/back attached to the side pannels, just at the bottom of the slits. do i cut those? is there a concensus or do i have to go all the way to my tailors to ask?

hit me. any sales people or office types here who have to dreass up daily? learn me.

I'm not 100% sure that I understood correctly, but if you mean that the side vents are sewn together with a single thread at the bottom, then you definitely have to cut it before you wear the jacket. It's a bit like leaving the price tag on if you don't.

Yeah, i think those are exactly what i am talking about. At the bottom of the jacket? My tailored jackets don't have them attached so i figured as much but wasn't sure and didn't want to go slicing up my perfectly nice, new, jacket in ignorance. Cheers man

Yep cut

You know when I was young I hated dressing up, was uncomfortable and felt weird. But man, I've been doing it so long now I have a ritual and I love it.

I'm gonna teach you how to live. Lesson 1 lose the goatee, doesnt go with your suit. Lesson 2 get a suit, suits are cool, exhibit A *does man pose*. Lesson 3 don't even think about getting married til you're 30.

Haha, i think my way of living is going quite well my friend (having been self employed since 18... and having climbed to the top of the industries i was interested in over the years), but thank you. i actually like dressing up from time to time, but prefer working in casual cloths since i do most my work from home (own my company). i don't think i'd like it so much if i didn't look so damn good in a fine suit though.

As for the chin strap... the ladies love it and it keeps my hair from falling off. win - win.

No problem. The reason why jackets you buy in stores have vents and pockets sewn shut are to prevent them from getting messed up before they are sold when so many people are trying them on in the store, and some may not be that careful.

Pretty impressive to be able to start your own business and succeed from such a young age.

I wear a nice, buttoned shirt, jeans and nice shoes to work at Ralph Lauren Polo.

I don't mind it. I can't go in there looking like a slob or show up wearing another brands obvious logo on my shirt.

Working nights at Kmart, I wore a t-shirt and jeans or swishy pants. I loved it dressing comfortable. No customers, too. I sort of miss stocking freight at night. I know, I might be insane here.

When I switched to days, I wore a plain white shirt, nametag, black pants and black shoes. It sucked, obviously.

Ah well, I got a higher paying job, I can't complain. The managers are awesome, too.

I've always had to dress "office casual," whether I worked at the Sprint store, or for a law firm, or substitute teaching like now. I don't wear tailored jackets though. I don't like the boxy feel of them.

L&M gets a clothing allowance through his work, which is good, b/c he ruins all his clothes there.

I see him in a suit maybe 4x a year, which is also good, because I hate ironing, and it reminds me how good he looks in a suit. He doesn't like dressing up. He's one of those guys whose tie is always strangling him.

yeah, see i'm entirely too lazy to iron. If i wear a suit, i take it into the cleaners shortly thereafter and get it back all clean and pressed. I even bring my dress shirts in... i figure, i paid to have them all tailored so the last thing i need to do is mess them up in the wash, or while ironing -- especially considering how little i wear them. I've done damage before. haha.

i'm the same as Mr.Swp, don't like the feel of a tight tie. When i do go to a meeting in a suit... as soon as i am out i loosen my tie a bit and switch my kicks in the car. Dress shoes off, white sneaks on.

As for Mrs. Shatterproof... her fav part about me in a suit is taking it off which serve us both just fine. heh heh

Truth be told man, it was 90% luck / knowing people and 10% good customer service and 'work ethic'.
