Does dressing up cause a higher probability of getting better job opportunities, raises, higher wages, better contract conditions, etc?

¿Does dressing up cause a higher probability of getting better job opportunities, raises, higher wages, better contract conditions, etc?

I’ve dressed very badly my whole life, with many oversized clothes that weren’t even my size, and now im finally getting into clothes and i realized i probably lost so many job opportunities just based off clothing.

So what kind of clothes and styles would you recommend for office work, job interviews, and so on?

      If it is a white collar job, yes. All jobs except for the lowest of low positions heavily weigh your appearance when hiring you. Being able to dress properly is how employers filter out autists, aspies, social stupids, low class, and Fresh Off The Boat (FOB) immigrant candidates.
      Almost every recruiter is going to look at your shoes right away.
      If you are white and the break of your pants is past a full break we will throw your application in the trash and assume you are autistic.
      If you are brown and the break of your pants is past a full break we will throw your application in the trash and assume you are a FOB.

      This Real Men Real Style video covers a lot of the common things that almost every man hiring you is going to notice immediately if you heck up, I am too lazy to write them all for you, learn to dress yourself jeet.

      it has to be well executed and with intention. traditionally cut suits are fine but you need to have the kind of physique they were meant for.

        White collar job is a dress shirt and dress slacks or even chinos. Nobody will look at your shoes, your boss will likely be wearing mud covered square toed shoes made of plastic glued together, he hasn’t even look at his own shoes. trouser length is not even a factor, they’re not even aware that trousers come in differing lengths

        Outside of white collar the interview uniform is jeans and a dress shirt, once you get the job you wear dirty track bottoms and a cum stained tshirt.

        Migrants could show up naked for all anyone cares, they’re guaranteed a job even if they murder the interviewer

        This. I live in a working class area in England and people automatically assume you’re someone important and defer to you if you don’t dress like trash. They assume you’re and authority figure with place to be and things to do. After I started “dressing up” (literally just wool trousers, linen shirt, jumper, some decent shoes, and a long wool coat if it’s cold) and got /fit/ I’ve started having people ask me “what’s the occasion” and had literal pensioners and mothers with small children wait for me to get on the bus before them (normally you wait for them instead and that is still what I go to do so there’s normally a sort of awkward moment where we both just stand there). Also if there’s a group project at uni I’m usually able to get control of the group quite quickly as people I’ve never met before seem to find me credulous and think I’m an authority on whatever we’re doing. I was never able to do things like this when I dressed like a stereotypical autist.

        TLDR. If you live in a country with a strong class system, dressing like you’re upper working class/lower middle class opens a lot of doors and lets you wrangle plebs in social situations.

        I work in a top 500 law firm and my boss wears a white suit, a t-shirt with a bow tie printed on it and red chucks. Nobody cares about how you dress as long as you dress confidently.

      >Is baggy suits acceptable?
      >I cant be wearing skinny
      false dichotomy. Get your fit. Suits made to your size dont have to be skinny or slim, but neither do they have to be baggy or oversized

      try clothes, take pictures, compare, TURN AROUND to see how the back looks, ask friends for advice

    Clothes are social signal. Dress a certain way that suggests you’re in a certain socio-professional strata and you’re more likely to get opportunities within that strata. It’s just human nature.

      Ruined with the undershirt. The only guy who has a good point for wearing one was the third worlder of /fashion/ who complained dress shirts were super expensive where he lives and are such a luxury there he only owns two of them and doesn’t want to ruin them by sweat or washing. If you’re white in a climate controlled first world country, it is disgraceful to wear one and often done to hide obesity or antipsychotic or finasteride induced man tits. I see someone wear one, I immediately think reddit and not a real man. That French autist on YouTube with the bespoke suits puts it nicely, the dress shirt is the undershirt hecking idiots. I own RLPL, BB luxury (shit now), Turnbull and Asser, and other expensive dress shirts. Never wore an undershirt, never will.

      I care how people dress. If someone dressed like that confidently, it makes them a clown.

        what? people just wear shirts on top of their skin without anything in between? i thought they just were very good at hiding their undershirt

        well i could just use a more hidden sort of undershirt, with a more open neck. Its not freezing cold where i live, but winter averages 9 C ( 48 F) and summer is around 25 C ( 80 F). These dress shirts are pretty thin.

        Also how about using a lumberjack shirt for more warmth and a more casual setting? as they’re thicker and such, better fit for cold weather

        i certainly dont want to dress better than my boss

        Button downs fit weirdly on some people and end up flaring and exposing their belly and chest skin, in which case, it’s appropriate to wear an undershirt but it should be sort of light and thin so as not to suggest lines. You also can’t buy the cheap ones that get stretched ratty collars in a week. I think it’s fine to wear an undershirt. You just need the right ones. Fruit of the Loom makes a decent thin one, but can’t remember what it’s called.

        body with visible pudgy stomach and tits
        hey, i have no pudgy tits, its just a beer belly okay?
        and yes i do need some new pants.. it may just be the angle tho, i dont consider them skinny, maybe slim if anything

        It’s a decent attempt, but the clothes fit like shit. Your shirt is tight around the body and extremely loose around the arms. What is that about? Get some oxford cloth button downs and white dress shirts. If you have to, go to a department store, ask them to take your measurements, and buy shirts with your measurements. You want mostly white, grey, blue, and oxford stripe grey or blue shirts. The burnt orange in the next pic is okay but it makes you like a UT-Austin alum or something. The khakis are just too tight. Try to find a more classic or straight fit. Also the waist rise is a little low. You want to be between where you have them and your belly button. Various shades of brown, green, grey, navy, earth colors basically, are all fine. Avoid white and lighter colors. I can’t tell what shoes you’re wearing but they look terrible. Get some penny loafers. Try to match them to your belt. J. Crew sells penny loafers for a somewhat reasonable price. Stick to darker browns for leather stuff. Lastly, get yourself some fleeces, fleece zip ups, quarter zips, vests, anything fleece. Personally, I think they look terrible with these sort of outfits but they’re pretty much a Wall Street/Silicon Valley finance/tech bro staple. So if you want to fit in, those are good.

        Do all that and you’re looking the part very well.

        thanks, maybe i need some bespoke stuff, a lot of shirts seem to be loose around the arms for me
        this advice seems the best so far, i will write this down

      You need V-neck undershirt, wool trousers and decent shirts.

      Check suitsupply.com for inspiration. Stay with white, light blue, light pink for shirts. Trousers go for navy, dark blue and charcoal.

      Also lose weight, fatass.

    Ive found that dressing well for an interview gives off an air of arrogance in todays age. I find I get the job if I dress casual for a job rather than a suit and tie. Idk why but I was told once that it could be that they feel they couldnt "afford" me but more often than not the wage is already cut in stone before I apply so it cant be that.

    nobody wears suits or dresses up unless you work in IB, or a law firm. I rarely get to wear my expensive suits so I just wear them when going grocery shopping or a snack run.
