    All you said make sense. Thanks brother



  2. ZVZ747 on December 7, 2021 at 2:09 pm

    Great video. Thank you for the info.



  3. Bryan on December 7, 2021 at 2:12 pm

    Loved this video Brock. It is detailed enough to be very informative, yet short enough to be digestible. I have a few friends that are starting their journey to dress better and I will be sharing this video with them to get them started. Keep up the great work!



  4. Andrew Lengyel on December 7, 2021 at 2:12 pm

    Can you wear golf polo shirts for business casual and the office and environment is truly laid back?



  5. Jan Novak on December 7, 2021 at 2:14 pm

    That intro almost gave me a hearth attack.



  6. nikoli gogle on December 7, 2021 at 2:16 pm

    I am here before this channel hits the million subs ✌️😏



  7. Rebel Software on December 7, 2021 at 2:17 pm

    It’s a little weird to get everything cleared with your boss. Just look at whether other people wear jeans or sneakers.



  8. Crypto Biz on December 7, 2021 at 2:17 pm

    I admire this



  9. Jo Nas on December 7, 2021 at 2:19 pm

    Can somebody explain this type of social distinction to a working class child? I totally don’t get what the function of these dresscodes is.



  10. Nerd Wisdom on December 7, 2021 at 2:20 pm

    Are knickerbockers/ plus fours business casuals?



  11. Michael Luo on December 7, 2021 at 2:20 pm

    How can you tell if a shirt was made to be worn tucked/untucked?



  12. Fausto Moh on December 7, 2021 at 2:23 pm

    The only thing my office doesn’t allow are ripped jeans, shorts and sandles. Everyone there has the worst sense of fashion besides a few young guys and girls I work with.



  13. Patrick Hanlon on December 7, 2021 at 2:23 pm

    What about computer cases that are slung over the shoulder?



  14. Daniel ⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻ on December 7, 2021 at 2:27 pm

    my new job starts tomorrow 😱



  15. Pierre O. Park on December 7, 2021 at 2:28 pm

    The more a company tries to enforce a dress code, the more I want to rebel against it, especially when a strict dress code does not make sense for the company, or the division for the job in that company.



  16. Daniel Sugar on December 7, 2021 at 2:29 pm

    I guess shorts aren’t a thing! That’s funny because I get to wear khaki shorts and dress sandals at my job and I absolutely love it 😍



  17. Zayden Elliot on December 7, 2021 at 2:30 pm

    I think i’m legitimately about to have a mental breakdown ahahaha. I’m trans, autistic, 90’s grunge punk kid about to start a business casual office job. Clothing rules all seem so arbitrary to me and men’s clothing all looks the damn same. I need serious help D:



  18. 20thCenturyBoy on December 7, 2021 at 2:31 pm

    Awesome, Common Sense Content. Thanks for your videos.



  19. Knockda 8 on December 7, 2021 at 2:32 pm

    Wow! thank you so much more to the point and informative then other videos I just watched!



  20. Drummergeorge on December 7, 2021 at 2:33 pm

    I don’t get the colors. I am looking at pics and just buying the top and pants. Buying a lot of clothes, already got. Dark brown and black chukka



  21. Quinton Quiroz on December 7, 2021 at 2:33 pm

    It wasn’t until this past year that I came to realize that my style has been horrible most of my life. I’ve gone through a lot of phases through my short life so far but the business aspect has never been one of them. I was immature and rebellious for a long time. Now at 31 and using my army benefits for school ill be studying accounting and moving into a professional career. Videos like this have been a blessing for someone like myself, love the content brotha, and keep it up.



  22. Joseph The Creator on December 7, 2021 at 2:34 pm

    Awesome video!



  23. CaliCal Ferrion on December 7, 2021 at 2:35 pm

  24. Arnold Layne on December 7, 2021 at 2:35 pm

    what is the rule for wearing shorts?



  25. Sohan Nalla on December 7, 2021 at 2:37 pm

    Hello! I’m from India. I got a job in PwC IAC in India, which comes under Big 4 you know. The dress code they mentioned was "Business Casuals". So, what kind of looks can I wear. Can you suggest me in this case?



  26. emile hoss on December 7, 2021 at 2:37 pm

    Great advice as always, Brock. Thanks.



  27. Mark on December 7, 2021 at 2:37 pm

    My new employer only specified "no ripped jeans" so I assume good pair of dark jeans are ok



  28. Stephen Goh on December 7, 2021 at 2:40 pm

    Super awesome! Love it. Thank you.



  29. andrea peña on December 7, 2021 at 2:40 pm

  33. jeff mcfaul on December 7, 2021 at 2:45 pm

    GooooooooooD Job



  34. Presbian116 Tier1 on December 7, 2021 at 2:45 pm

    In your definition what is a casual boot? i guess you’re saying a suede chelsea boot is casual.



  35. Ryan Lechner on December 7, 2021 at 2:48 pm

    Great video, Brock. I have one question though. Regarding shoes, what’s your take on monk-straps?



  36. Jose Cardenas on December 7, 2021 at 2:49 pm

    For casual fridays, I normally wear a wife beater with saggy jeans and a pair of Nike Cortez sneakers. Nice video Holmes.



  37. 2 Minute School on December 7, 2021 at 2:50 pm

    Nice♥️



  38. Aldin on December 7, 2021 at 2:52 pm

    For every Friday we wear Batik.



  39. Zhang Sheldon on December 7, 2021 at 2:53 pm

    Hi I have a question, I have a University Etiquette Dinner, the dress code is business casual, so what should I wear? I am planning to wear a bottom up and a v-neck sweater and the suit jacket, and bottom with khaki pants and dress shoes, would this be fine? I am just confused.



  40. Partho Basistha on December 7, 2021 at 2:55 pm

    Kindly advise can dark black jeans be worn in contrast with mustard, yellow, cherry coloured shirt as business casuals while attending meetings any many thanks for the easily presented information. Thanks



  41. Drummergeorge on December 7, 2021 at 2:55 pm

    I h8 how jeans aren’t bus cas. 😐



  42. K K on December 7, 2021 at 2:58 pm

    Great video since I’m a guy in my 40’s who suddenly finds myself having to dress myself for the first time since I was 17! Seems like a lot of work, but now I understand it’s just another uniform lol.



  43. S F P on December 7, 2021 at 2:59 pm

    This was great advice! As someone who is about to start in the consulting world, this is a great help. Thank you!



  44. Simon Simon on December 7, 2021 at 3:03 pm

    Rubbish. I shall wear exactly what I want to, and certainly do not ever, and would not, consult an old time-wasting bore such as this ludicrous person!



  45. Mr and Mrs CORONA on December 7, 2021 at 3:03 pm

    All great tips! Thanks!



  46. Chris Ryan on December 7, 2021 at 3:03 pm

    Just got hired into a job that is only business casual so now I need to get a whole new wardrobe, just subscribed



  47. vladimir dev on December 7, 2021 at 3:04 pm

    Exactly what I’m looking for! Subscribed!



  48. David Rael on December 7, 2021 at 3:06 pm

    Excellent !



  49. Felix on December 7, 2021 at 3:06 pm

    Its hard following a "business casual" for an interview when the people interviewing you are wearing jeans and sneakers. This is referring to some retail company’s .



  50. Parrot Brand on December 7, 2021 at 3:06 pm

    Work from home. Business Casual… Tshirt, shorts..home slippers
