It may have been acceptable for Phil Collins back in the mid-Eighties, and more recently, the trend-setting England football team manager, Gareth Southgate, but the ‘waistcoat’ look was most definitely frowned in some branches of the bank back in the day.
According to a couple of my managers, it made me look like a railway platform ticket collector (remember them?) and left me ruing the extra expense of buying a smart three-piece suit in the first place.
And yet, my three inch platform shoes and mullet haircut drew no comment. Not to my face at least.
Does anyone have any more unwritten or idiosyncratic ‘rules of the branches,’ they’d be willing to share?
A couple of photos and a brief account of the day have been added to the ‘Past Events‘ page.
Wow! It’s still three months away, but all our allocated forty seats have now been sold, so regrettably, applications for this event are now closed.
Thanks again for your support.
(If you’re not fast, you’re last!)
There has been an excellent response for the trip to Lochside Hotel and Spa, followed by
Dumfries House, with an amazing eighty-eight people joining us next Tuesday, 26th June.
See most of you on the bus at 10.30
Lets hope the weather is kind
If you haven’t already reserved your place on this outing, then I’m afraid you can neither have your cake, nor can you eat it.
