I'm curious if anyone here regularly wears suits to work and if so what type of work do you do?
I recently purchased my first real suit from Indochino and I'm anxiously waiting on the 3rd remake to arrive which is hope fits perfectly. I can't wait to have a proper fitting suit in my wardrobe but I doubt I'll ever wear it to work. I'll probably save it for interviews and what not in the future.
I currently work for the federal government and everyone in the office dresses very casual as we don't really meet external clients. My director is usually the only person who sports a suit or a sports coat; even my manager just pulls off a dress shirt and khakis or jeans. I'm thinking it would be fairly awkward to be donning a suit while even my manager doesn't suit up.
Taking advantage of the Black Friday deal a few weeks ago, I purchased some dress shirts and dress pants which is what I typically wear to work from Mondays to Thursdays. Fridays are pretty much a very casual day where people wear t-shirts and some even dare to wear sandals in summer. I Actually have a few co-workers in my directorate that actually wears t-shirts everyday.
In this type of environment I doubt I'd ever really wear a suit or would really be required to unless I'm going to be having a meeting with senior management. I certainly hope I get some decent usage out of the suit though as I'm already thinking to purchase a navy blue or charcoal essential when Indochino has their next deal LOL.
So guys, do you normally wear suits to work and what is your work environment like?
