I was just having a similar conversation this morning. I'm in the business of giving advice, frequently to powerful folks who are significantly older than me. In my experience, people are more likely to value that advice (subconsciously or otherwise), if I look the part than if I dress like a slob. Maybe that's silly, but when I'm selling my judgment, I can't afford the perception that I'm not treating their problems seriously enough.

I think this is a good investment. You're going to immediately convey the impression that the work you're doing is important.

I think you're right.

(You only agreed with my comment because I'm wearing a suit right)
