What's acceptable to wear in your office?

I just copped a bunch of dress shirts for my new job, but I didn't get any ties. I haven't worn a tie to a job interview since 2011.

What about pants fits? I bought a bunch of Dockers pants, but I didn't like the way the regular fit was hanging off of my legs so I got slim fit.

Will I get in trouble for wearing slim khakis to the office? Should I exchange them?

It all depends how big ya meat is. Honestly. If you showing pipe print through ya pants, it's unacceptable.

Here's a tip (no pun intended). Save money by buying clearance rack dress shirts and suits, and get them tailored. Find a good cheap local tailor that will take care of you. You can make a $100 suit look like a Hugo Boss, daddy-o.

Get you some damn ties, boy. Get the slim joints though. Make sure you get a tie clip. If you wanna get this money, you gotta dress like money, nah mean?

Buy the cheapest pants fit and get it tailored. As long as the waist and hips are good, the tailor can make magic happen

I was told "business casual" as well.

I didn't wear a tie to the interview but I had on a blazer and vest.

I might wear a blazer the first few weeks on the job and then stop once first impressions are no longer a factor.


Is it a no go on slim khakis? Should I go exchange for a size up?

Slim and skinny are different.. as long as your legs can breathe you should be ok. Plus style depends on your work. If you like wearing a tie do so.. i wore a tie to my interview as a desktop support role , go figure we dont wear ties and can wear jeans and sneakers on certain day but a dress shirt is always mandatory. So i just wear khakis or dress pants everyday and some shoes with a polo shirt or a nice dress shirt depending on how i feel. I work with a bunch of executives who dont really care how we dress as long as we get **** done...

You're really overthinking it.

Yeah I have a whole lot of RL polos, and I was gonna go with those but my friend who works there says polos might be iffy as a new hire

I copped like 5 Alfani dress shirts from Macys, the entire line was on sale for 19.99 each :pimp:

Khaki pants, or dress pants of any kind really. Polo shirts, cardigan sweaters, and sometimes I'll wear a dress shirt and tie if we're having something special.

Casual dress shoes with an athletic sole is a must. I can't rock the typical church dress shoes. 

With my shoes I put my Jordan XVIII insoles inside for added comfort. I have the original black/blue insoles, and then the white/red insoles. But the carbon fiber really helps out.
