lulu lemon pants appropriate for office?

Starting internship at BB in two weeks. Was told the group/office is fairly casual ie chinos polos button ups. Was wondering if lulu lemon commission / ABCs would be acceptable? Or is that considered overly casual?

Our office maintains a business casual attire on non-client facing days, but I have not seen anyone wear lululomens before. But if these are the casual pants they are offering, just looked them up. They look very similar to the standard business casual look with other brands.

I'd say they are ok.

My rationale is fitting in to the office culture and attire. Wouldn't want to come across to formal if office is more laid back. Thoughts? But guess I'll have to wait and see after the first week

Quick question about the button up, should it shirt + tie or is just the shirt with top button unbuttoned fine?

Yup, even the tighter ones are fine. Real reason why it's called Bulge Bracket. True story.

I've been almost exclusively wearing ABC pants to my office (endowment) after the lib on squawk box kept hyping them up. They look pretty good and I think they're similar to chinos

Blows my mind that some people are advising against it or think its questionable.. I rock lulu's or comparable pants everyday. Who gives a fuck what you wear as long as its not shorts and a tshirt? Youre not seeing clients just help me pull some logos and scrub some comps my guy

100%. They look professional and there's nothing to indicate with them that they're anything but a nice pair of work trousers.

Can't speak for NY, but they are the absolute normal for Tech IB in the bay
