What are the most common brands for gillets, quarter zippers, shoes and watches in your office? Is it true that people splurge a lot on fancy clothing in investment banking? What brands are favoured the most?

Also, what region are you located in?

 

Lululemon trousers apparently don't wrinkle, apparently tons of people wear them at the office in some groups

 

I know a lot of people like eCigs and Zyns at the team I interned at

Nice list. William lockie is a bit overlooked in sweaters but I find them to be great. I also would add George cleverley for shoes. What’s your location? What watch do you wear?

Thanks - I live and work in NYC.  My work watch is a grand seiko.....I have a couple others but have largely stopped wearing/buying them as I have a couple bigger life expenses coming up and I'm not sure it's safe anymore to rock a Lange (I don't have one, just for an example) on the subway.

Also, I never pay list price for most of the brands I listed, usually shop around online to get a great deal.

 

Rubinacci, Brunello Cucinelli, Loro Piana and Brioni for the best tailored trousers.

 

A3 but still got the intern level fit 

Uniqlo non iron shirts  

tm lewin jacket pants 

shoes rm William 

Anyone who actually wears Patagonia at work I cannot take seriously
