By the standards of the 1930's, those guys were dressed like bums.

However, they understand something a lot of anons ITT do not. You either get to dress how you want to, or you have to dress like someone else wants you to. In understanding this, you understand your standing on the social ladder.

>>16998915
All professional clothes are a costume.

I am sometimes expected to wear a suit at work, when visiting clients or if we organize an event.
My brother is a chef, he does not even own a suit. But he wears aprons and stuff that I do not own.

Even worse now in tech... everyone tries to dress like fucking zuckercuck or steve jobs, no one wears formal clothing

They're shocked I wear a button down and shoes, even this is over dressed... for a fucking analyst/data scientist.

I walk down the street and if I'm wearing a white shirt 100% chance of homesless people approaching and begging for money (city of london). Fucking pieces of shit probably make more money then me and don't even pay rent.

the worst is that women will 100% throw them selves at a guy wearing a suit even if the guy next to him in a t shirt is his boss and makes 100x because they can't understand how money/status actually works.

Those guys are posing for a wedding photo, anyone wearing a suit and not working in a high tier job/business is cringe/autism, and if they wear one whilst not being mandated by their employer too.

But what we are talking about here is the effort. They are not wearing jeans, a tshirt and plain sneakers, they actually dressed to the best their monetary condition allowed.

This, i'm going to respect someone more if they try to look smart but not get everything right rather than someone who dresses like a slob and doesn't care at all.

The industrialist uniform (note the meaning of that word, uniform, as in the same) is not a good thing. It’s intentionally void of choice and customization, because you aren’t you while wearing a uniform, you are your profession. It is literally a costume

If you want to act in bad faith, go ahead.

If you have a repectable profession you naturally identify with it and the people you share it with. Natural in group forming. They are now your "tribe". Which kinda explains why non-ingroup people get salty, when people belonging to the suit-tribe self-assuredly walk around them. As well why non-suit-tribe people will degade and trash talk them (unattentive to the fact that they themself are dressing in a uniform manner to their tribe (skater, goth, zoom-normie pop-culture, you name it). They all have their uniform, while claiming that they themself are individualisticly dressed.

Same goes for other professions like stay at home mothers or even a lack therefore like NEETs. It's basic human animal nature. And everything ou claim about suit bots, will also catch up with your own style.

Shakespeare was right. All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women are merely players. There are, however, degrees of freedom here. Yes, in the presence of others you always play a role to some extent, but that does not justify choosing to play one that is particularly inauthentic.
>>
>>17001668
There is nothing more inauthentic in a suit than there is in a tee and jans. If anything the suit evolved over century and has a rich historicall background, where jeans were used for cow herding and tshirts are nothing more than wearing ones underwear as th only layer. I would argue that a suit, due to that historical evolution, has much more option for heavyweight individual adjustments, be it in cut, fabric, colour or accesoires as well as the combination of all the above. You have half a millenium of inspiration and multiple layers on which to project your inner world.

A suit doesn't equal buying a slim fit black off the rack one like million other people or getting prescribed a specific one without room for personal taste from your employer. Check out how people working for the BigFour dress. Despite their suits their fits have much more character tha your random no-suit employe going to work in the same H&M jeans and hoodie over a random band shirt made in Taiwan or Bangladesh.

To call suits industrialist uniforms is intellectually dishonest. Suiting throughout the 20th century has more in common with historical Western dress than what is worn today. The death of suiting coincided with a shift towards that which had only recently been made possible by globalist trade and manufacturing practices which were most strongly entrenched during Modernity.

Acting in bad faith is calling the suit the industrialist uniform when the blue jeans were born of needs specifically in tune with the development of the America West. The suit is a descendant of earlier eras than industrialism. The necktie is a scarf after all.
>>
>>17001261
I think people forget that being clean was a privilege. I do agree that those suits look good, but this clothing has a lot of purpose to it. Chemise\shirt keeps sweat from jacket, jackets are probably adjusted to suit them perfectly, and shoe making was much better because things were made to last.
Then compare it to OP's picture. They wear those suits because its considered "decent". It looks better than t-shirt + sweatpants, sure, but its just vanity. Most suits nowadays are poorly fitted either way, unless you're the biggest hipster in your city, i guess.
>>
The only people I see wearing suits are kids going to prom, government workers, and europeans
>>
I don't have a wagie corporate job, I am largely involved in academic research but otherwise I am involved in bioinformatics at a startup. I regularly deploy my suit in circumstances of demonstrating my respect for others - e.g. meeting with new clients/professionals, interviewing, delivering a presentation, attending a function which isn't explicitly casual, etc.

If you don't wear a suit for scenarios like those which I have laid out, you are probably not white - if you happen to be ethnically white, you certainly don't behave as such. Sure, the suit is largely viewed as being a signifier of status but it is also a signifier of respect. It takes little effort to be presentable, it is the least you could do.

in science anyone wearing a suit is kek/10, usually a young naive guy/woman with low scientific power

or a wealthy benefactor/donor who has no science degrees but donates large amounts.

Only the second is supposed to be wearing a suit.

maybe also if you work on nukes/AI and have a suit under a lab coat and are directing 100 + phd holding men.

No one else in science/academia is supposed to be wearing a suit

Even in academic finance... fucking kek unless you came from the board room 5 minutes before.

If your presentation is in tech/science and you're wearing a suit you likely have autism and are probably a virgin.

the other giga cringe are sports people/entertainers/non technical/non business/non professionals wearing suits on any occasion

You are a cuck who cannot and will not make decisions on your own volition. I appreciate that what I am saying in completely novel to you, but some people amongst us can make decisions on our own and don't poll public opinion for every single decision we make.

What does any of that have to do with having nostalgia? Especially with the given example. That was there version of acceptable attire back in the day, but still rings true today. They might have been seen as poor, but they strives to at least resemble dignity and elegance on a budget. Today’s trends are hot garbage and show no actual generational growth.

Suits are literally the traditional outfit of the european working class, i don't wear them to feel superior to anyone else, i do it to carry on tradition and because i enjoy wearing them.

Your words make you sound like an immature fuck too, society would collapse without the working class.

also investment banks

>>17013450
Any profession that is regarded as serious or official. Mid five figures in lower cost of living areas can support decent suiting.

You can buy three half-canvassed 100% wool suits in your classic charcoal, navy and black from a reputable suit maker or an MTM for $1500. Then you buy half a dozen no-iron shirts on special from somebody like CT for $250 or less. Finally you grab some Allen Edmonds on sale and some thrift store ties and you're set up at around $2k all in and equipped to wear suits five days a week.

You can get set up quite cheaply nowadays.

Charles Tyrwhitt. They're decent quality shirts, nothing amazing but they offer a lot of variety and good discounts when you buy multiple shirts. Their big attraction is their introductory deal where you get 3 shirts for $99. They run a lot of sales too.

Brown oxfords are pretty universal. Allen Edmonds runs big sales as well so wait for those.
