Do I have to buy expensive high fashion attire?
If I buy a sub $300 suit, sub $100 dress shoes, $30 tie, and $45 dress shirt as my business attire will I be ostracized at work?
I'm poor and have student loans to pay, but I feel like if I want to be one of the good old boys at work I'll have to buy some cuff-links, ferragamo shoes, Ferragamo ties, zegna suit, and a diamond earring (princess cut) to fit in. I do have a nice build and clothes fit on me pretty well so people always ask me "oh your shoes look good, what brand are they?" It's already enough that I have to hide the fact that I went to a public high school and when you look this good the questions just don't stop.
