It’s an unfortunate truth, but any cognitive psychologist will tell you that we’re immediately judged and compartmentalized subconsciously when we’re in the presence of others – a large component of that being our hygiene and our clothes. Unfortunately, I’ll only be addressing the latter in this piece (I hope you’re washing yourself on a regular basis; although we all know that a developer that might not be).
I’m going to break down an average male technologist’s wardrobe into the cheapest, and most critically useful pieces. I won’t be delving into high fashion, accessorizing, or any of the frills associated with clothing. However, this guide will cover about 85% of the scenarios you’ll have to deal with on a work-week basis.
