Why is it that a man ties a thin length of material around his neck and he automatically has more credibility.

Oh, ties are great, aren't they. They get in the way when you try to write. They fall in your food when you try to eat and WATCH OUT FOR SHREDDERS GUYS!!!!!

Good ones cost as much as a good shirt, and if it isn't good it doesn't "dimple" correctly. Those in the know KNOW that dimple!!!!

So, there you have it. It seems your credibility actually comes from proving that you will put up with this ridiculous custom and the aggravation of having a noose around your neck all day.

For the same reason that those suit-wearing clowns wear suits to meetings. . .Because they need to wear suits to meetings? and why do they hold meetings? To justify the wearing of suits, also to Shite about the last round of Golf. . ., those suit wearing clowns are holding me hostage right now.. . .I am a fotografer from NJ USA stuck on a desk, and it has taken 10 weeks suit wearing meetings for me to almost get an answer. . . Also, I tend to rant a wee bit about the few subject wherein i think America holds an advantage-viz' BBQ. . .I think I've managed to offend some ofthe locals with my Jingoism on this subject, but that is the one and only place wherein i beleive the USA holds the lead (well Asides from basketball, but that goes without saying and i really give give a few Mickey's Meat pies about glandular freaks running in circles for an afternoon.

A point that you both seem to have missed, is not only the automatic credability of any fool who has just got a suit and tie from a charity shop for under £10.00, but the automatic assumption of the lack of credibility of anyone dressing even slightly differently.
PS I have managed to wear the entire outfit in the piccy on my researcher page to work, but the company do think of themselvs as the wierd company in prototype, so it makes it easier to get away with this sort of thing.

That was, in fact, the point I was trying to make. I have worked on and off in a sales environment many times over the years and the poor souls who are individual and interesting always end up in a monkey suit, or out the door.

Personally, I don't care what someone wears, if they are interesting or good at what they do, that is more than enough for me.

Ya, well, I agree, I'd much like to simply wear a bathrobe to the office to be quite honest about it all, but, That's a bit much. . .I try to be on the casually neat side of things, just 'cos "I'm white and looking for a promotion". . .I gre up Irish and poor in AMerica and worked my arse off tho breakintothe game and now, I'm passed over for promotions b/c I GREW UP WITH ALL THE ADVANTAGES? NINA signs ring a bell? I should dress like cheese eating college trustafarian, it would probably set me off as a DIVERSITY CANDIDATE. . .

As I said earlier, the weird company has no problems with dress code, or any other silly conventions. They now have a review at http://www.zyra.org.uk/weirdco.htm which describes their ideas pretty well.
