RE: Wardrobe

Wardrobe upgrade happened last night. Seems to have met with a positive response. Much surprise, and some friendly advice about how to dress from now on. JLa and seem to think that my appearance is keeping me back – that the boss-man isn’t considering me for things I may be able to do because I’m not professional looking enough.

I can be professional looking, I just usually choose not to be. I think might have had similar issues when he was looking to move out of Inside Sales.

Things to ponder.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    I now own real suits. They are actually pretty comfortable. They cost an arm and a leg but they feel nice and set a tone. After the initial shock people have seeing me in a suit (that already know me) they can keep a straight face.

    I just need to apply that to the rest of my ratty collection of threads where comfort is top priority and looks secondary :)

    I definitely thought that the outfit was very nice today. I am impressed and think that it will do wonders for your career if you dress like this more often.

    I love ya to death and I think that you are so intelligent. However, I think that the shallow people here refuse to look beyond your clothing to figure it out. Dress differently for a little while and see how things change. You might be amazed!

    I’m glad that Engineering, even up here, doesn’t have such hang-ups ;-)
