    It gets worse, call from agent, I ask why the dress code? Manager is new in the role want to build a world class team.

    I am surprised there is't a uniform.

    Fiscal nomad it's legal.

    Challenge the person on why the feel that someone who wears a pair of trousers and jacket made of the same type and colour of material is going to be more effective than someone who does not.

    They will give you some bulltulip about a smartly dressed person being better and more diligent and more committed or some rubbish

    So just ask them whether grabbing a tramp off the street and putting them in a suit will magically imbue that person with diligence and commitment.

    Part and parcel then.

    As a basic rule of thumb, contractors should always dress better than the permanent staff. Get yourself down to Savile Row.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    It’s his default signature based on the device he’s posting from, which is why you don’t see it when he posts from a web browser.
    As for putting it in his signature, that would require him understanding how to do that.

    Instead, it says a lot about him when he tries to weigh in on a serious subject, then finishes off with that line.

    As a basic rule of thumb judging someone by their attire is a pointless activity.

    Most of the politicians you see are wearing expensive suits and they are the most untrustworthy ******* you can find.

    Contract signed, start date agreed etc. email from agent "Wishing all the best on your new role, please find DRESS CODE attached.

    Ok I have worked directly for consulting companies with dress codes, one 27 pages. But end client
    What is the dress code? Is it more elaborate than 'business dress'?

    I quite enjoy dressing up for work these days - I even got a colour analysis done a few weeks ago!
    Because feelings...
