    Thank you for this article. I was taught to dress above your pay grade if you wanted to advance. So T-shirts/jeans were first level employees; Polo Shirts & Khakis were Managers; Chambray shirts and slacks or jeans were VP and above.
    I also remember the “Shoes Rule” of trade shows that I was taught many years ago. Stilettos=Booth Bunny, Low heels=Sales, Flats=VP Engineering or above. For men it was Loafers or Tie up leather thin soled shoes=Sales, Athletic shoes=VP Engineering or above; “Birkies”=uber-geek kept in back of booth away from clients.
