Hi guys.

I've been following the forums for several months now and decided to make an account and give the site a try. I recently signed as a summer analyst in capital markets for a bulge bracket. Is there a certain way to dress? What brands or styles will make you look good but not cocky or arrogant? Would something like Calvin Klein work, or do you need something like Armani or Zegna? Not trying to sound arrogant, but I don't want to be the only d-bag not in a Brooks Brothers shirt.

Thanks,

    Facepalm.

    read signature.

    this is also in the wrong forum there is a forum for fashion...

    The answer to your question is 1) network 2) get involved 3) beef up your resume 4) repeat -happypantsmcgee

    WSO is not your personal search function.

    more about fit than brand

    General Starting List:

    10x shirts (focus on blue/white, some striped)
    2x suits with extra pants (trust me on the extra pants)
    2 pairs of shoes (black oxfords or loafers, you generally want to alternate shoes day to day)
    1 belt - black
    20x pairs of socks - may sound excessive but worth it for those rushed mornings

    Basic Rules:

    -Belts and shoes NEED to match
    -Socks and pants should match (altho if you are in London then red/other colored socks are passable)
    -Dont be a dick and flaunt expensive brands (the big H belts are disgusting)
    -Dont wear a cotton suit (no joke saw this happen)
    -Dont wear a suit jacket with elbow patches (saw this as well)
    -Wash and iron your shit
