    So this is my first week working as an AR specialist for a manufacturing company. When I went to the interview I wore a nice dress shirt and tie. On my first day, I noticed no one in any of the departments, including mine, wear ties. To clarify, the president even wears jeans. That being said, I've been wearing a tie, dress shirt, and slacks, fir the past 3 days. Is this acceptable? I haven't gotten any flack so far but people certainly notice...I prefer to dress this way, but don't want to be an ass hole or anything.

    i have a buddy who showed up to IBM in a tie for years when all others were in jeans. He rose faster in the organizaation than he otherwise would have. people will (oddly) think you're more professional and smarter at first glance if you dress this way. So keep it up. It's probably a good idea. If people ask you about it, just say you like dress this way because you just like to.

    I agree with Curt. It is a low-cost way to distinguish yourself.
