It certainly is a fascinating topic, a keen insight into the nature of the personal dynamics involved in the workplace.
I mean, obviously there’s no actual relationship between what you wear and the work you do. A suit and tie does nothing to affect your abilities to do your work, and indeed on hot days they’re really quite inappropriate and unhelpful.
So the idea that it’s linked to professionalism is exactly just that, an idea rather than a reality. So then I wonder why we perpetuate such an odd behaviour – Is it a control and conformity thing do you think?
