No.

I dress for the purpose of the trip.

If my purpose is to appear as a curb dwelling derelict, I dress accordingly. It is highly possible those in the office my voice an objection and their clients may reach a conclusion not beneficial to all. 

So, respectfully, the bigger picture must be considered and attire must be appropriate for the environment.

Dress for success is similar to it's cousin, fake it till you make it.

No, but I look better than 50% of the people dressed up (or so they say). It has really gone down hill fast I'm afraid. The front desk assistants always look nice but that's it.

Since I work in a two person office with my father, I normally dress like I normally do. With cattle you never know when I will need to go and work with them so at the office I try to have a nice shirt and clean jeans. That said, I have chased cows down in heels and dress but I think the pictures are deleted.

Monday - Saturday it's shirt and tie minimum.

It's a mindset for success.

Sunday is shorts & T-shirt and a day off.

As Susan Emo eluded to, my dry cleaner has never seen me in anything but a suit or shirt & tie except when I take an extra day off. He always knows: "Hey Tom, you playin' hooky today with Ailina?"  "YEP!"

I'm careful about it, it's part of my brand.
