The Financial Times prides itself on being the newspaper that rubs shoulders with the world’s top business people. However, some FT hacks evidently need a lesson in dress sense.
A recent press briefing at one of London’s poshest clubs proved a very uncomfortable event for two sartorial mavericks, who turned up dressed inappropriately.
Their attire sparked much behind-the-scenes consternation and resulted in them being frog-marched to a fully stocked wardrobe.
Despite some pitiful bleating about not “wearing ties”, protest proved unavailing. One soon returned, sporting a club tie, bizarrely knotted over his polo neck jumper, while his colleague had acquired a smart new blazer.
No dress sense? No comment.
