Now the other day for an informal meeting with the PM’s special advisors at number 10 (see my No. 10 blog for a pic) I wore my usual blue jeans and a shirt.
Yet this is a formal evidence session of parliament, so I’m debating whether I should break my golden rule and wear a suit. Does that make me look like something I’m not and as if I’m trying too hard, or is it irrelevant anyway?
The big problem is I will be going straight from GMTV where I never wear a suit. At the moment the halfway house option is a smart shirt as normal but proper (ie not blue jean) trousers.
Though frankly more important right now is reading the full 85-page written evidence before I go in.
