Does anyone still wear a suit?
Since returning back to the office following the Covid-19 pandemic working from home era, no one in my bank wears a suit any more. Everyone simply wears a shirt and chinos with casual shoes.. even our juniors. In fact there's even times I now see some people wearing casual t-shirts, hoodies and jeans!
The only time I see people in suits is for a client pitches.
I quite like wearing suits because it mentally makes me feel good, if I'm in casual clothes I can feel a bit too comfy in my chair and feel a bit lazy. Also it's super quick and easy to put on a suit.. you don't need to worry about what colours match and what outfit you need to wear so it makes my mornings quicker.
However, I feel very old school now and unsure whether I should just man up and move forward with this new era or stick to suits. As I don't want to go around spending hundreds of bucks on a new suit if it's now pointless.
Do you all still wear suits? FYI I work in the investment banking division.
