A particularly appropriate sketch over at Nicholas Bate's blog.
I was in the City yesterday meeting with a client based out of a large, smart office complex housing a few big-name financial service businesses. The lobby was swarming with men in suits, and yet a surprising number of them weren't wearing a tie.

The reality, of course, is rather different. Suits may still be generally required, but for the non client-facing majority of of junior and mid-level workers, ties are becoming increasingly optional.
