[quote=SometimesNowhere]DD wears short spandex shorts, a mesh tank top and a whistle to fit in with his clients.

Why did you want to sign up for my gym class so bad then?

I think it depends on a lot of factors as people have said.

Firm Type: Probably can't wear jeans to a wire any day of the week Location: Downtown vs suburbia vs country Population: Larger the population more likely to wear a suit Competition: Jones always had a thing that I never understood "dress like the local bankers... " But don't I want to set my self apart from them? Practice: Small profitable practice(most likely indy) vs larger practice (wire/regional)     For example today(indy): I am wearing jeans and a long sleeve shirt(no buttons).. However I have no appointments, and have never had a walkin... So I am simply making calls today, so I want to be comfortable when doing so..

  What's up with the Rotary crack?  [/quote] Because most there are 4 advisors in every rotary club.. MS/SB, EDJ and Wells(formerly AGE).. Maybe some are there for the cause but most are there for the prospecting.. So that is why..

I agree.  I don’t ever talk business at Rotary.

There are a ton of advisor pikers there.  I think DD is there.

I think this depends on your area.  In my area, there are a few advisors in Rotary (including myself), but we very rarely talk business.  A couple of them have been around so long, they could care less about getting business from it.  They are honestly in it because they are charitably inclined.  I think there is a big difference between “prospecting” at Rotary (Lions, etc.) and it being used simply as exposure.  I think it’s important to many people that clietns and potential clients view you as “good citizens”.  These organizations (IMHO) are one way of showing that you are a good corporate citizen.  And to be honest, if it were not for professionals and business owners, not much would get done in my town.  Most everyone else is too busy at “work” (the 9-5 grind) to get involved.

On a side note, my favorite company to get suits from(because I buy suit separates) has now discontinued selling suit separates… I am screwed…

Is that Jos. A. Bank?  I know they sell separates.

Feb 4, 2010 7:17 pm

No a region shop that provided great value for the price…

[/quote]   I have one suit from them.  It's a piece of crap.  Did I just happen to get a bad suit or are all of their suits not worth the money?  I've gotten better wear out of the 3 suits I bought off of ebay for $200.  I get emails every day from Jos. A. Bank telling me about their wonderful specials, but I just can't make myself go back and buy more suits if they're going to be as bad as the first one.
