I write a lot of proposals at work. I write them for government projects, corporate projects etc. and they generally prove to be quite persuasive and hence, effective. It all comes down to a good solid plan with a description and a good set of justifications.
Thus, I’m adopting this approach in the sphere of occupational dressing. I want to say that I simply do not see any reason why denim and trainers cannot be part of a universal workdrobe. T-shirt, jeans and trainers (jeans in particular) form the basis of a hard worker’s identity. They allow for dynamism and freedom in thought and movement, what I would consider to be the exact calculation for success. However, a conservative business casual sensible (which is the title I bestow on my confusing dress code at work) is founded on the ability to enter clubs and establishments that turn their noses up at denim and the soft tread of a trainer at any point. I see the rules. I just don’t agree.
Here is a small compendium of ways that white denim can look very serious indeed and a way to bounce from one shoe to another if it ever is necessary to hit up an ‘establishment’ at a moment’s notice.
