You don’t have a single suit?

Yeah you should still have a suit…not just for MBB, but for life lol.

Nothing to laugh about. It’s totally ok to not own a suit if you’ve never needed it.

Been here 3.5 years and have never worn a suit. Very uncommon.

But you should still have one because that’s just a normal thing to own

Yes . MBB without suit is like b4 without hat

FYI if you’re only buying one suit — blue and gray suits are best for work. Black for weddings/funerals usually

I occasionally wear one to client sites. I'd say I have worn it less than 5% of my working days though.

I think you should have in general. However, I have never used one in a working context. I’ve used one once for a holiday party.

Never wear suits to client sites except maybe my grey once, because it’s casual. Better to get a solid sports coat imo

Depends on the clients you serve. You will likely need to wear a suit for time to time if you're serving in insurance or finance, for instance. Less likely if you're working in tech or oil & gas.

Get one because by the time you need one it’s a little late.

Depends on the client and also leadership. I’ve had clients (law firm, executive leadership in healthcare, etc.) where that’s what they wore so we were expected to wear them as well.

Depends on the office truly; I have only worn suits at the client site

Which one hired you without a suit?

Hi fellow PE fishes, seeking career advice.
Currently in an APAC based LMM/MM PE focusing on tech and had joined the firm straight out of school. I intend on sticking to PE long term, but am curious about my career and financial trajectory in 3 cases.

1) stick to my current firm and eventually make partner

2) go for a Master’s degree and then move to an UMM/MF PE or MBB -> UMM/MF

3) Stay in the current firm and start my own fund with other Associates in the future.
