To each his own, but I leave the work shirts at home. Yes-I wore them for a while when I first started networking & yes-I have long sleeved custom embroidered logo company dress shirts but I switched gears in my fronts (dress) many a years ago to the dressier look. I wear a nice brass name badge I got made at Office Depot with My name and company name.

Today I'm headed to a networking luncheon with some great referral sources/friends and I figured I'd rock the Blazer, mock neck & dress slacks.

Hay, you gotta LOOK like money if you trying to get that money right?

it's funny because all the big money here in my corner of the world all wear jeans. it's business casual.

#Respect

I've got a tougher hill to climb (no complaint)

The general public, thru media influences, have been duped and may harbor preconceived notions, assumptions & stereotypes that I have to to overcome. In addition I live in a VERY conservative part of north Georgia

If I didn't have pigmented skin, eyes and kinked hair I could show up in sandles shorts and a tshirt I'm sure.

#NoComplaints

Walking in these shoes is a liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiil different.

But I do what it takes to achieve My objectives

I think the GQ look works for meetings and commercial prospecting....

Everyday work uniform for me is pretty relaxed. Nice embroidered polo. Embroidered hat, and clean blue jeans.

My bro in law does only high end work and does his estimates in polo and shorts.. All T&G with 3 crews...works for him.
