3. You have to make your way up the ladder a few rungs before they become expected

At least for most employers today and for some employers they aren't even expected at any level thanks to the Mark Zuckerberg era of the zip up hoodie. I think this is both a good and bad thing. Good in that most of the rules no longer apply or at least to the extent they once did which offers more room for self expression. Bad in that there's less appreciation for attention to details.

For many years I was indifferent to ties. I wore them because I had to. I appreciate them more today, perhaps because I see them more as an opportunity to express individuality than an obligation. Even the best business suits are rather boring and repetitive, but there's no limit to styles and designs when it comes to ties. I've developed a pretty good collection of vintage ties, and most of those are of a very high quality from the best designers of the past 50 years or so, almost all of them scored on ebay for less than $20.

The men's fashion of today pretty much has to include casual options, because that's the environment most men are going to find themselves in most of the time. As such unless you have a big budget and a lot of closet space, it pays to build a wardrobe that's going to offer a lot of versatility inside the spectrum of casual to formal.
