It’s too hot to wear a suit, even hotter in the tube and when you’re hustle-bustling to get to work, and of course sweat + nice suit = disaster. As long as everyone has a suit and tie at the office for client meetings etc I think it’s a smart policy – comfortable employees are happy employees are efficient employees!

It has never so far hampered me in giving at least as good legal advice as any suited and booted people on the other side. When reading a copy of The Lawyer on the tube I sometimes get looks from some of the suited and booted brigade (wer are next door to an MC firm) along the lines of ‘you must be in IT and picked that out of some lawyers’ waste paper bin’.
