Work Clothes: Working at a Hedge Fund

Back when I was younger, people who worked in finance looked different. They all wore suits, tie, cufflinks with their facial hair clean shaven. Now a days it’s a little different. You don’t wear a suit unless you work at a bank, and if you are at a hedge fund – business casual can be pretty open to interpretation.

Here is exactly what you will need to survive your first spring/summer working on the buy-side:

Picture (Clock-wise)
American Crew Fiber: Probably the best stuff you can put in your hair. They have a few different types but Fiber is definitely the best.

Charles Tyrwhitt Shirts: One of my favorite brands, and they have great quality items for really cheap prices. You can generally get 4 Shirts for $200, and they will last forever.

Hugo Boss Metost: My goto dress shoe. Not overly done, kind of simple, and looks good. Read my review here. $225.00

Bonobos Weekday Warriors: The best pair of pants you can buy. They are comfortable and come in three different fits (Tailored, Slim, Straight) and a bunch of different colors. Checkout their physical locations to get fitted (my review here) and start ordering. $98.00

Patagonia Vest: Also known as the douche-vest, or finance-vest. This thing pretty much just says “I work in finance, and am presumably smarter than you.”

Best Golf Pants Ever: Uniqlo Dry Pants

This weekend I figured I would sneak a quick round of golf in prior to Easter Dinner with the family. The Saturday before I realized I needed to purchase some new golf pants so I went to GolfSmith, Dicks, etc… I couldn’t find a semi-decent pair under $85, and that’s when I realized I need to goto Uniqlo.

While passing the Uniqlo by my apartment, Broadway and Broome, I remember seeing they had these pants advertised. They are called ‘Dry Function Pants’ which are made from a quick-dry material (100% Polyester) that keeps you feeling cool, and has a little bit of a stretch to it. This stretch fit is so comfortable, and makes me feel like there is no shot of ripping my pants when going to put my tee into the ground. The pants are also extremely lightweight/breathable, which ensured I did not sweat my balls off by the time the sun came out. Also, these look like regular dress pants – so I am definitely going to start wearing these around the office once summer comes.

The pants are $40, and are really awesome. I picked up three pairs, Grey (Wool Like), Black, and Navy. The pants come in their standard 34″ length, but with their free-tailoring (sometimes same day), you can’t go wrong with these pants.

Bonobos: First Time Going to Their Location, Great Experience


photo 3 This morning I had some free time so I booked an appointment at Bonobos down the block from my apartment. I have been procrastinating on buying more work pants for the past few weeks, which has become an necessity due to the increasing bulge of my gut. So I woke up, a little hung over and walked over to Crosby Street. I read some reviews on Yelp about this location, about the people being snooty and pretentious – and I was kind of expecting the same. I walked in browsed around a bit, and then was greeted by some of the staff – and contrary to the people of Yelp’s comments – everyone was really nice. Also, I picture the atmosphere being kind of one of those hard-sells where they pressure you into buying way more than you came in for, and it was not. It truly was a great experience overall.

I met with Makenzie, and after a few minutes we decided on the cut and size I should be wearing in their products. We determined their Slim Straight fit looked best, and their team began to put together some things to try on in this style. I wound up buying two pairs of their WEEKDAY WARRIORS in Friday Grey and Light Friday Grey. Since I was a new customer, they gave me the 20% of Discount Рwhich ended up saving me $40.00 and spent a total of $155 Рfor two pairs, which is great. Before I left Makenzie sent me my measurements for their Weekday Warrior, Workday Wools, Dress Shirts, and Shorts Рwhich I can then use in the future to order more products online.

When I got back to my apartment, I realized I had a 30% off discount code from a flyer they sent to me the other day. So, went online and was able to order two pairs of their¬†HERITAGE WASHED CHINOS which were finale sale – which I didn’t mind since I had all the details of my fit from today’s appointment. The chinos were marked down from $128 to $68 a pair, and then with the Discount Code: WINTERSALE30 I got the 30% for a total of $95.00.

So in total, four pairs of great fitting well made pants for $250.00 – so it was definitely worth waking up this morning and walking over there. I definitely recommend checking out their website, but I also think it is a great idea to goto one of their locations to get the fit that suits you best. They have 11 Bononos Guideshops, two of which are located in NYC – one in Flatiron, the other in SOHO. Also, they have 1-2 day shipping, which is free, so you can’t beat that either.
