    Hi all,

    Just looking for some basic advice really as I'm new to most of this.

    What would be good choices for shirt colours/ tie colours for an intern? I was going to stick to the whites, pale blues, light pinks and maybe light yellows?

    With a Dark Grey or Dark Blue suit btw.

    Thanks for the help.

    Stay away from solid colors in your ties. No fancy designs (e.g. Hermes ties).

    Ok, and plain shirts or some with texture?

    As for the tie, what about this kind -

    Don't wear a tie if you're in S&T (except first day).

    I would use something with fewer designs. I quite like stripes on a plain white shirt. I recommend buying a few white shirts and some similar ties until you're able to gauge the dress code on your desk. Then blend in and buy what more senior people are wearing.

    Dude no one really cares, the suits are fine and any combination of shirt/tie with in reasonable limits! Just pick a 4 for £90 deal from TM Lewin, should get you through the summers.

    that's BS, unless you're in trading, people care about the way you're dressed.

    stick to the basic: blue/dark grey suit, plain white / light blue shirts, no fancy ties (ferragamo, hermes, and the like)

    They do, especially in client-facing divisions. Granted at the beginning you won't be meeting clients, but you are still required to look the part. Coming in with ties that don't match the culture or don't match full-stop, is bad. You want to get through your Banking stint without being labeled as the one who didn't know how to dress.

    What is the significance of tie design? Why would solid colours or that hugo boss tie be inappropriate?

    The UBS dress code document gives great advice... until they pulled it after the press backlash and public ridicule for its level of detail.

    Adjectives after the noun and the frequent use of "port" where the verb should be "to wear".
    Looks to me like they translated it from French.
