Executive Robes

because suits are too complicated, stiff and expensive

Suits, while they look good, have far too many layers, each of which must be carefully tailored, costing you money. They are also uncomfortable and don't adequately hide body fat.

I propose that one-piece robes, in the style of India of today, venice a few hundred years ago, Greece earlier than that, and Star Wars in fantasy.

These robes would be cheaper (one-piece), more comfortable (loose, hide keg), and cooler (you look like The Merchant of Venice (or a jedi-your choice)). The fabric would be nicer since the jacket is less complex.

Wear it with hats, sandals, and matching satchels.

       I baked this by going everywhere in a robe in my dorm hall in Arizona. Many people thought it was awesome. Many people disagreed. The latter were wrong. It was awesome.

       This is a good idea, for the reasons you outlined, but i forsee everyone getting really fat, in the knowledge it doesnt matter what they look like under the robes.

       This would inevitably slide into the nearby car-park known as the Toga. Then business would face a New Roman Empire before long. The values inherent with such would lead to an extremely overt form of commercial fascism (starring Richard Gere).

       Good plan. Give board meetings that messianic feel. At least then when they don't make sense it'll be taken as some sort of mysterious wisdom.

       Do non-Executive types get to wear jump suits?

       [benfrost] your past ideas seem to suggest you forsee everyone getting fat, regardless of what the robes look like.

       Stretch one piece leisure suits for the working man. Now in DayGlo colors.

       Could they have markings to indicate whether the wearer is a mere Department Manager, an Assistant Senior Vice-President, or a Member of the Board of Directors?

       Robes rock, but this idea is charcoal. And, having had the experience of a snowbank situated where no self-respecting snowbank should be or want to be, there are disadvantages.

       Why was this idea not brought to my attention sooner?

       Don't look at me [Max], fire your media coordinator and your fashion adviser. And give your third understudy of internet based idea filtering a good hard glare.
