The thing is, I am going into a technical field. I don't mind and actually like wearing formals when its cool outside. Its just the heat that's an issue while wearing formals. Guess I need to suck up the sweat and deal with it by purchasing better deo and cologne.

I'm a female, and I prefer winter formalwear because I like layers. If it's summer time, I'm limited. And it's also hot…

If the meeting room has good A/C, then wearing formals is not an issue at all. Else its a bane. Room temperature of 73 F and below is comfortable for formals as long as humidity is low.

Umm... if people are stupid enough to wear formalwear (gowns, long dresses and tuxes) to a JOB FAIR, they deserve to get heat stroke....

That's as close as I can come to describing what he does. In practice, it's way more complicated. In rare instances when he meets someone who needs to ask, and with whom he's decided to communicate, he can now just say, "It's easiest if you just look up my name." That's the good thing about everyone's having all these little portable devices, now. The bad part is that too many people use them while driving...

Germane to this thread is that the impact of DH's packaging precluded most of the actual work for which he'd prepared himself in school. He enjoys his specialty: but his knowledge base was merely a requisite for entry into the business end of field. We both worked really hard on improving our accents, and spent two hours a day in the gym. It's hard to pack enough muscle onto a 6ft3 frame. And we learned the intricacies of ultra-fine business garb - with me, at first, scrounging Better-than-the-Best clothing from unlikely sources - then off Ebay - until, finally, we were able to pay retail. But his looking and sounding spectacular (speech therapists, acting coaches... hours practicing with me... we finally got his voice down to an orgasm-inducing rumble, and made his gaze hypnotic, his posture commanding...) meant that he was snatched out of 'the lab', and fast-tracked within the 'front office'.

And again, it's all a lot more complicated than I'm making it sound.

Wait, my university demands that all students dress up in formals for career fairs. Its not my choice, its the decision of university career services. They decide what type of attire students should wear to career fairs and interviews.

You need to look at it from our point of view as well. Students like us are expected and advised to wear such clothing at career fairs by the university career services. Most of us take such advice seriously while appearing for the career fair.

You mean business attire. I'm sure they are not requiring you to dress in formals.

This is formal attire:



Not really appropriate for job fairs.
