hey /fa/.. need a little advice
ok i'll start with a little about me:
>work office job w/ no dress code (besides look presentable)
>never in my life wear a dress shirt except for weddings/interviews/etc..
>daily attire: jeans / hoodie / sneakers. usually all black (pic related kind of, not me tho)
so.. my question is.. how can i transition into a nicer daily wear? nothing too crazy, maybe dress shirt untucked, black/beige/brown pants, decent shoes.
i don't wanna just show up one day, it would be to weird.. how to make this transition a little more subtle? slow..
i'll probably get ripped but whatever figure i might as well try.. also if you'd like to post recommendations on what types of clothes to buy to achieve end goal that would be cool too
Afraid to get ripped for what? Dressing well? Tell the h9rs to piss off.
I'm moderately overdressed for my office (If the average "dress" level is around a 5, I usually dress an 8), but my reasoning is I actually go and see patients and convince them to take risky drugs for testing purposes. Everyone else just stares at a computer screen or is on conference calls all day. My point? I have the highest data and am setting records way above anyone who has had my position before me. In fact, the CIO is in the works in creating a position tailor fit (pun intended) for me, because they don't want me to leave after my 1 year temp is up. I attribute some of this success to my ability to present myself confidently and professionally, and this includes how I dress. I've been mistaken for a doctor on many of occasions, and I take that as a compliment.
tl;dr, dress how you want and if people rip on your, rip on them back for being dirty plebs.
Longwinded oversharing aside, this guy is correct.
Why transition? Just start dressing how you want to dress and anyone who doesn't like it can eat a dick
source: made the same transition from dirtball pleb to well dressed professional
>how to make this transition a little more subtle? slow..
The answer is literally to go slowly. Build up a good foundation of well fitting basics that fit your lifestyle, and branch out from there. Don't go and change/ try a bunch of things at once, it'll be too jarring and you'll feel uncomfortable (you'll already be self concious as fuck for the first little while); instead, slowly introduce and try new things so you can determine what it is that you actually enjoy wearing and go from there.
so 2 say just dive in and do it, one says to upgrade one piece at a time..
everything i wear fits well. maybe not some of my older hoodies but i only wear those at home or friends house close by, never public places.. also i know my pants are too long and i should get them shortened but i'm lazy..
guess you're right after all..
i think i might just go all out, might be easier now that winter is coming up. wearing a dress shirt with a sweater on top is easier than just a dress shirt. also can just wear my jacket all day if it's bad lol
something like this would be the end daily goal.. with different shoes....
From what I can tell from the description of the general attire at your work, this would be a 100% improvement.
Oh, and fuck a casual Friday.
Sorry about the long wind lol, Adderall has me by the balls today.
