New York | Dave Beckerman

A good friend of mine had a theory about pinstripes and business suits. According to his research (and he said he had been looking into it for years) you could tell how high a person was in the corporate organization by the distance between pinstripes. If they were far apart - then you were high on the pyramid. Close together meant you were at the bottom. And no pinstripes - at the very bottom. He had worked as a programmer for many banks - and that was his conclusion. True or not - I have no idea.

    There is hope. In many Western European countries, in business and government, the tie has gone out of the window. It’s a good start.
