The attire should be Comfortable, whatever it is. If its raining with half the city knee deep, 3/4ths can be as good instead of forcing oneself to formals. And any good dressing helps business and work. The code or type of dress never matters.
I find this article talking over perfection about 22 stitches per inch etc. I'm sure 90% of the salesmen in any top cloth store will have these knowledge. I hoppe, these are the theories taught in fashion technology. Are we here to work on computers or do a ramp walk in IT industry? I've been working in IT industry for last 9 years with GE, Xansa etc. Till date no one has counted my collar stitching & I've made numerous presentation. While the world is shrunken everyday by video conferencing & telephonic conversations & odd working hours, how come one can even show their neat iron shirts, expensive shoes? I do agree dress plays an important role. In my opinion, one must find a balance between the right cost & quality on dressing.
For me, looking good on the outside means first looking good on the inside. So ladies and gentlemen, depilate! "What???" you men scream in shock - "Us men depilate??? That's a girl thing!" Not so, gents...India has a hot and hotter climate, so no amount of deo or perfume is going to mask BO. Gents, clip your underarm hair (especially in summer). It goes a L-O-N-G way in dealing with BO. Ladies, regardless of whether you're wearing sleeves or not, wax your underarm hair. Think of the amount you'll save in perfume/after shaves. And as a final word, keep the fragrances subtle - go easy on the amount of fragrance used. It's for YOUR sensory organs -not the world's!
Hi I am not debating on this issue , but telling actual fact, that dressing makes a lot of differnece in your performance not directly but indirectly. When you are dressed properly, you feel more confident in presenting your projects and also at the time of implementing your skills .I was not much bothered about these dressing issues in India, but working with british company has really made me a man of principles and I think it should be implemented in Indian IT companies (which have improving a lot) as well.
