Google’s Privacy Chief Backs T-Shirts, Not Ties

Permanent Link: http://wutiam.net/notes/41

Google Inc.’s global privacy counsel, Peter Fleischer, wants to see t-shirts replace the tie as standard business attire, saying the tie

1. “constricts circulation to the brain”;

2. “acts as decorative camouflage for the business suit, designed to shield the middle-aged male physique, with its shrinking shoulders and protruding paunch, from feeling sufficiently self-conscious to hit the gym”.

“Wouldn’t you like to know whether your business partners are fit? Why should you trust a man in business if he abuses his own body?”

In addition, he said casual attire may also result in greater creativity.

“If your fashion editor can hardly imagine a better garment for men to exhibit their personality, power and masculinity than wearing ties, well … I work at Google. Our unofficial motto is, ‘Be serious without a suit’”

Background:

Google, like many other technology companies, allows employees to dress casually for work.

However, several of Google’s senior managers are shown wearing ties in their official photographs.

Google 的首席隐私律师建议,应将 T恤 取代 领带装(正装,定为商业人士的标准着装。

他为我们列举了“领带”的两宗罪:

1、束缚了大脑的血液循环;

2、掩饰了中年男性下垂的双肩和隆起的腹部,使得他们忘了自己早该到健身房去锻炼锻炼了。

同时,Peter还认为,休闲的着装更有利于提高员工们的创造力。

背景:

象跟多IT公司一样,谷歌允许员工穿休闲服上班。

不过,一些谷歌高管平时仍然穿得一丝不苟。
