QuoteOriginally posted by: katastrofa2. Most men look better in a good suit than in casual clothes. Suits carry a long history of design aimed at hiding the flaws of flabby, overfed male bodies.I am trying to think of when I ever cared whether an applicant was handsome. I certainly never valued him being fleetingly handsome during an interview. I want my male hires to be fat geeks, and I want my female hires to depend on work for money.I know someone who seems to like better-looking hires, to make the office environment a little more interesting for everyone. But a person with this sort of interest will see through the suit to whether the person is actually good looking day-to-day.I forgot to mention: Whether intentionally or not, he has basically ended up with a gay office like this. The majority of key male employees are gay. Your average guy is going to be a hopeless slob, probably not relevant to his job.If hiring a programmer, I expect him to be fat. If hiring a salesman, I expect him to be cheezy. If hiring a web designer, I expect him to be neat. If hiring a contractor, I expect him to be rough. If hiring a mailroom supervisor, I expect him to be ghetto. If hiring an IT networking technician, I expect him to look cheap. If hiring an engineer, I expect him to look nerdy. If you are one of these people other than sales or web designer, and you show up in a suit, you are going to look like a ridiculous ghetto person dressed up in a suit, or whatever.
