Are suits and ties.....?
Yes, suits are stylish. Are suits worn by politicians and business men to have the appearance of importance, but in actuality they aren't?
In men I like Brioni and Armani suits. In women, I like Valentino and Chanel, primarily, but also the other designers.
The men and women I know who wear those look just as good in Gap or American Eagle Outfitters or Banana Republic.
They wear suits as as symbol of seriousness, I think, more as a sign of respect for others who expect them to wear suits for the occasion. The choice of suits is a function of style.
The function of any attire is no more than to frame the man or the woman, just like the function of any frame is only to show a painting in a different setting.
A Princess, dressed in rags, is still and will always be a princess, not necessarily in the literal sense.
but a princess will never like being dressed in rags
Even rags would look good on a Princess..and a real princess will not care that much about what she wears...she wears what is available and comfortable..
Personally, I hate wearing a tie but it does give me a slight edge when dealing with employee's and customers.
What do you think Sports, you hinted that you have something to say on the subject.
My son, on the other hand, loves ties, not many suits but many ties...I was thinking..how can someone so young have as many ties as he has..
He's a tie person. They are ever so confining but some people love them. At least you know what to get him for his birthday
So true..thanks, but I have always taught him to ask for what he wants..
My point was a suit and tie are used for symbolism. Although, I agree they do look nice, but I found this in an article..
"If a mad person were to ask me what this tie is for, I would have to say, absolutely nothing. It's not even purely decorative, since nowadays it's become a symbol of slavery, power, aloofness.
"The only really useful function a tie serves is the sense of relief when you get home and take it off; you feel as if you've freed yourself from something, though quite what you don't know," writes Coelho.
He did miss one useful function, aside from girls using it to drag you into a kiss, and that's submission: the tie shows a man's willingness to conform, to bow to rules and mutely admit "I won't rock the boat" ...

On another note, I feel as though, someone in a suit might get more respect than someone dressing casual. Even though the casual person might be right, more people might listen to the person in a suit.
true on all counts though at my work I don't have to wear a tie. I do because I have to inspire those around me to always be professional and that unfortunately means leading by example
Yeah, I don't have to wear a tie either and I don't. Actually I wear anything I want at my desk.
Suits and ties give the appearance of professionalism, would you trust a bank manager, who was wearing shorts, a loud shirt, sandals, hippie beads and long hair? Suits are formal and business like.
I knew you were going to say that sportsbetter, but I agree with Mercia, it is something more subconscious, we respond differently to someone dressed professionally.
Dark, Of course, I have a profile pic of Tom Jeff, he hated banks. Trust me, I get your point. Ppl in Rome wore Tunics n Togas, no matter position. They had bankers too. Going to college is formal also, but I know smart ppl who didn't go to school.
Well, I wouldn't presume to argue with Thomas Jefferson, although I bet he dressed appropriately for his times, even if it was decidedly inappropriately for the Roman Senate, as you pointed out.
That's true I'm sure Tom dressed accordingly.
