Dreading that meeting with a group of bankers that requires you choose the lame blue jacket hanging in your closet instead of your $5500 shiny brown / pink pinstripe bespoke super hero costume? As much as I like to make a little noise, when asking for money it’s important to not look like your outfit costs more than that of the combined mortgages of the gatekeepers across the table. I recommend you dress for the occasion, but don’t be afraid to slide on a little flashy confidence with a pair of these new striped dress socks from Paul Smith ($30). The meeting attendees will take notice and they won’t have to look at their watch to know what time it is.
