Gabe Stein is a web development genius and the mastermind behind the new TSB website.
Since hiring him roughly a year ago, he’s taught our team a ton about information technology and strategy. Consequently, since working with us, he’s also learned a ton about clothing and style.
You’ve already seen the impact Gabe has had on TSB. Here we show you the impact TSB has had on Gabe.
1. Casual – Before
A web developer by trade, Gabe typically works in the most casual of office settings. I’m talking no dress codes at all, where t-shirts and sweatpants are fair game. With that said, just because you can wear whatever you want doesn’t mean that dressing sloppily will have you performing at your best (in any area of your life).
What we can learn from Gabe’s “before” look:
- Don’t wear a t-shirt under a v-neck sweater. That’s what casual button-down shirts are for.
- Avoid jeans with fake factory-induced distressing, especially those with hard contrast lines. They look cheesy, unnatural and cheap.
- “Hybrid” shoes, like these leather sneaker/loafers, are the footwear equivalent of a tuxedo-printed t-shirt. A ”practical” combo in theory, but not appropriate or flattering in any situation.
- A nylon gym bag is for pick-up basketball games, not for commuting to the office.
