Just curious, do you guys ever feel weird wearing designer items to the office? Such as expensive loafers and belts? My company is already pretty lax about the dress code.

just keep the branding subtle… no belts with the giant GG logo or anything ridiculous like that

If the branding is subtle, 95% of people won’t be able to tell whether your outfit cost $500 or $5,000. They’ll just notice you look nice.

RSM my dad always. A gentleman should have a subtle shine. That advice has always helped me when I dress. Wear designer items that speak high quality, but likr everyone said, nothing flashy.

True RSM is the OP!

No one really notices, except people who also wear the labels. If that's your flex, go for it.

Somewhat. I commute in NYC and wear a Burberry trench as a top layer most days. I’m sure I get some looks, but it made more sense to buy something I really liked and that would last for some time.

I just feel weird wearing designer stuff, period. Lots of other things I’d rather spend money on. But if that’s your thing as long as it doesn’t look ridiculous, go ahead.

I’ve worked with 2 people who wore pretty expensive clothes. One of them didn’t even wear the same thing twice. To be honest, I and many more people only realized those things were pretty expensed because they talked about it or another person who knew about brands mentioned.

Nope. That said, I never wear anything flashy (to the office or otherwise) because that’s just not my cup of tea.
