Fifty-Nine Percent Of Bankers Think Their Colleagues Should Look In A Mirror Once In A While

According to a poll by the Financial Times, over half of your colleagues have been looking for a polite way to say you dress like a slob.

Since the financial crisis left them shaking in their Cleverley bespoke shoes and Christian Louboutin heels, bankers say they have started dressing for work more casually, Camilla Hall and Maija Palmer report. Some 59 per cent of bankers said their colleagues dressed less smartly than in 2009, with just under half of respondents saying that colleagues did not wear ties to the office, according to an FT poll of 135 bankers in response to the news that Savile Row tailors were feeling the effects of US tax crackdown.

    This is all nonsense. All I hear about these days are divorces, trading in of cars and abandoned country club memberships. These people are dressing like this because there are no more suits required, its business casual. Another way of saying dress down because your pay is down. Other than that I have no concerns. Now I will go back to sharpening up my guillotine
