Re: Can I Go Professionally Casual

I'm thinking that you can never be too smart.
Nail on the head.

However casually you may think some Swiss (and any other nation for that matter) office workers may dress - clothes matter.

One of my favourite saysing: "If you want to be the boss - dress and act like the boss."

Whether you admit it or not, dress sense is very important and gives the beholder an impression - whether they want to be impressed or not.

I knew of a lost promotion in the Swiss insurance industry because a man used to turn up the sleeves of his suit (very fashionable amongst young blades here in the 1990s). It was felt that he was not suitable for a higher position as long he did this - yes really!
