Should one’s capability be judged by their dress code?

Dress code could be deceptive especially when coming into contact with someone the first time but after several encounters and understanding the inner power, dress code becomes meaningless. The brain decides capability not attire.

It depends. Cultural norms and perhaps your work environment will dictate how we all dress. But personally, your dress code is about cleanliness, being neat and decent.

The way someone dresses says a lot about who and what they are, a shabby person will most likely deliver shabby results and smart people tend to be organised and smart. One would be right to judge one’s ability by how they look.

No one’s capability should ever be judged by their dress sense. We dress in whatever makes us comfortable which does not necessarily fit the “trendy fashion” tags. Your dress sense is also dictated by your work.

If you work in a corporate environment for example a bank and you are expected to be suited up - you will be suited up whether you like it or not. Everyone will be whistling the way you are smart while inwardly you’re like “I can’t wait to get home and get rid of this damn suit!”
