At least he shows he is showing some compassion by going to the funerals after he has got away with it.

In my last job interview, one of the interviewer exclaimed "A tie!! You didn't need to get dressed up for us!"

Do you think it was the tie or the assless chaps that lost it for you?

I have to wear a tie everyday at work, however, mine's is a clip-on. *sticks 2 fingers up to the Duke of Windsor and his stupid tie knots!*

Most days. Think it looks smarter, and a jazzy tie is a great way of compensating for a lack of actual personality.

As I type, I sport a fine silk tie, black with white spots, a gift from a family member. On a work trip. It separates me from the hoi polloi, the very function of the accessory, I do believe.

I only wear ties infrequently, the usual Weddings, funerals etc but I'm a big believer that if you have to wear one don't do it half hearted. Can't stand seeing someone wear a tie not fully done up with the top shirt button undone. What's the point of wearing the thing in the first place. Fair enough if you are 8 pints deep at a family funeral.
Learn to tie a proper knot, never wear a skinny tie and do your shirt buttons up!

In the past fleshy pale-skinned women were considered the most attractive (see every painting of Venus, ever), and now it's skinny tanned women.

Speak for yourself!

My employers should be fucking grateful I can be arsed to wear clothes at all. As should everyone else in the vicinity.

For some reason this thread has reminded me of that peculiar breed of elderly gentleman who, despite being retired since God was a boy, is always up at the crack and waiting impatiently for the shops to open, dressed in immaculate business attire from the Seventies.

Yep - I do online teaching via Skype so only my top half is visible.  
I hope.

Not worn a tie in 20 years. Used to get a bit of stick from my boss for attending the companies conferences in jeans and casual shirts while everyone else was in suits and ties (work for a Swedish company), but they have now given up, so I consider that a small victory.

Do a lot of Skype calls, but no video, so mostly sit outside in shorts and nothing else (always too hot to be wearing much more). We may be moving to more video conferencing so that may mean pulling on a t-shirt for the calls.

That's just because we've all grown up being told that this is what looks smart. In the 16th century it would have looked weird. It's just fashion.

In the past fleshy pale-skinned women were considered the most attractive (see every painting of Venus, ever), and now it's skinny tanned women. This stuff is just learned.

Nah - I just think they look smart.

I've never thought fleshy pale-skinned women were attractive, and certainly don't think skinny tanned women are either - I guess I'm not a good learner!

Great old tradition that but I've always reckoned you might as well hang a notice round your neck with the words :

"I am the accused and I am guilty"

When you get to my age, beggars can't be choosers. I'll have either - or both, even, if the spirit moves me...
