Stockbrokers at UBS now have it in black-and-white, no garlic soup for lunch. UBS rolled out a new dress code that contains some good advice, and some advice that would seem to be intuitively obvious to the most casual observer.
In are grey, blue and black suits on men and light makeup and knee length dresses on women, and time pieces for both.
Out are “showy accessories and trendy spectacles,” dyed hair on males, and strong fragrances. That also includes “garlic and cigarette breath, the code says. The solution: “Avoid garlic and onion-based dishes.”
Perhaps I need to take a page from UBS and rewrite my companies dress code. What scares me is that having a written dress code is probably a new SEC mandate I missed. You can read more here.
