Some days, I can get by at work in regular pants and a button down shirt or sweater. Other days require a sports jack or even a suit. Depending on what I wear, I've noticed that I get treated differently. Wearing something professional but casual, I get treated casually, and I have no problem with that. On days that I wear a jacket and tie, or a suit, I notice people treat me more efficiently, positively, and politely. For example, today I was wearing a jacket and tie (I combined brown, dark green and purple and I think it worked pretty well ) and as I stood in line for food the folks in front of me were having a hard time picking out what they wanted. The guy behind the counter kept looking over their shoulder at me in a conciliatory manner, growing more impatient with them as time went by. I walk into an office and the receptionist is quick to respond. I walk into a store and the clerk is quick to serve. I notice this a lot more prevalent when I am dressed to impress. When I was a kid, my dad used this to his advantage. On days that he and mom had to come in for parent-teacher consultations, he would wear his dark suit with a custom tie and steel-rim glasses (normal work-gear). He looked successful, intelligent, persuasive, and not to be fucked with. When he dressed that way I knew that my teacher was toast if she said anything negative and most times they shared only positive criticism. He didn't look like the kind of guy that would take criticism of his kid. By the same token, men might treat women better who are showing a little skin and curves, or some of our favorite pervs here on LPSG might jump to attention for tight jeans and a huge bulge. What about you? Are you aware of being treated differently depending how you are dressed? Do any women have a favorite dress that always gets what they want, or do guys have a power tie that wears down the competition? Do clothes get you treated differently?
