Goldman-Sachs relaxes DRESS CODE. Will the Tie Stay?

Just because you wear a suit doesn’t mean you have money. With the rise of tech millionaires it has made it the norm to dress down for work; the top man could be in shorts and you wouldn't know. This reminds me of the movie The Social Network.

“If you have the money, why dress like it to show others you do, that’s Forbes’ job.”

We live in a time where we are judged greatly by appearance. “Fast cars, beautiful girls, and parties"- Bobby Misner. This sums up the goals of most. Having a luxury car to show off, girls to prove you’re someone to look at, and parties with the big shots. Sounds like a great life, but everyone truly wants life to slow down, make true friends and have deep conversations around a campfire, can’t do this in a club.

Mark Twain put it, Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.”

Clothes may "show" your personality, but how can you if you don’t know who you are? Fashion and growth, in life, start when you find out who you are, what your want, and where you want go. Dressing up in a suit and tie gets you more respect and attention, no matter what your age. If you want to be someone of significance, you need to dress up. 

You have true colors, clothes are just one way to show off in a subtle manner that calls for respect. 

Bankers, brokers, agents, venture capitalist, and investors are all after the upside, the attention or the "art of the deal." They look the part, dressed up in a suit, dress pants, tie and dress shoes, ready to impress and press you to work with them. Firms like Goldman Sachs have lessen the status quo and appearance of a banker. Bank of America, Well Fargo, Moody, City Group, Chase - JP Morgan and Morgan Stanly may follow suit. Since the introduction of the modern suit it has been a way to show off your class, to dress for the job you want (to be the boss) or show your professionalism and respect by how you dressed. It was a way to give and make people feel important when doing business with you, you looked the part, whether you were an intern or the president the customer shouldn't be able to tell. Big Banks used to brand their employers as a butler service, white glove attention to detail from your money and shown in the way you dressed. It take time and money to look good, show the effort to show the customer you care.
