What is considered an appropriate male outfit in the office and the client? How formal does this need to be? Any specific brands or styles to be avoided?

I’m coming into McKinsey from an engineering background where blue jeans and a dress shirt was on the formal side haha 😂

All advice appreciated!

Wear what the client wears, or slightly better. Don't wear a suit to tech or to Harley Davidson or in Hawai'i.

This is helpful. Thanks for the tip.

Depends on the client but you can’t go wrong with a suit

likefunny

You can’t go wrong with a suit, in the sense that if you take off the tie and/or jacket you’re ok in 99% of environments. Maybe not the actual beach, but pretty much any other workplace in America you’ll be ok.

Business casual in the office (ranges depending on office but think chinos and a dress shirt). Client-dependent so ask your team when you join each study for both remote and in-person expectations

As M1 said, go a bit more formal than your client, but not enough to stand out in a bad way. They’re paying for your advice, so you want to convey authority without being weird.

When I’m not suited up, my go-to is a jacket or blazer with an open collar OCBD and slacks, khakis, or nice jeans with dress shoes.

Hey fishes, asking for a friend who wants an insider opinion:

She got an offer at McKinsey Digital at the Associate level (coming from Deloitte Digital) but she is not keen to be only doing 'Digital' work, how easy is it to do a thoroughly non-Digital project at McK (i.e. Due Diligence or Corp. Fin?)

My understanding is that it's possible to work in other parts, just need to network with partners but how hard is it to do?

She also has offers from Tier 2 Stat firms for general strategy.
