I was expected to wear a tie as part of my school uniform from the age of 11.
In my OLD JOB, I just wore shorts and a pull over shirt. I worked with scientists and engineers... we never interfaced with clients or anyone else for that matter (too many layers of security; there were admins for that), so there was no dress code.
In my NEW JOB, there is an expected uniform - the traditional business suit (and a nice one, at that; 3 piece suits). When I got this job, I spent well over $1500. getting a couple of suits, white shirts, some more ties because I only had one (old) suit and it didn't fit very well. I admit - at first, I didn't like it. BUT I'm come to embrace it (including the tie). I look good.... and that helps me feel good. And I look "the part" and I think that maybe helps me feel the part. To be honest... I kind of LIKE IT when I'm having a meeting.... and I'm the best dressed person in the room.
Weird. I know.
