. This doesn't apply in all cases, but as general rule of thumb for me. Maybe that's unfair, but hwen you have choices to make, you often just go on instinct.
Of course McPhee, I agree...I mean anyone who goes for a job interview should be wearing some sort of professional look.
I'm talking about in environments where there is no dress code, why is Mike Ribeiro considered immature or a cancer because he chooses to wear his jeans a little looser than Saku Koivu for example. What makes Koivu's look more 'proper'? Who decided that was more 'proper'?
That's my point about perception.
I mean, if a guy walks into a mall wearing country casual clothing and shoots up 100 people, what he was wearing will never become an issue.
But if he's wearing a black trenchcoat or baggy pants and a tilted hat, you can get your *** it becomes an issue. (sorry, I used an exteme example to get my point across)
Anyways, were kind of deviating from the subject, but it's something i've been hearing/reading on the TV and in the papers so I thought i'd chime in.
