Rockabilly And Career: Clothes Make The Man, Or What?
Is a career in certain industries with the rockabilly lifestyle compatible? I imagine this question after I recently read an article in an online magazine, is situated in the following thesis: only the one who appears in the suit or business costume is competent in professional life. No matter was whether real expertise is behind the business-grade outfit.
The whole thing was demonstrated by the way, with an experiment in social psychology.During the Dr. Fox experiment (also explained on Wikipedia), an actor convinced an audience due to his appearance in the fine thread of his (non-existent) expertise in applied mathematics.
The reverse this, provocatively formulated, would mean: no matter, someone is as capable or competent, without corresponding business compliant outfit he or she would have zero chance it ever to make a career in professional life.
Rockabilly As A Lifestyle
But is that actually true? How does a lifestyle beyond the mainstream? It is clear that followers of subcultures were always difficult. In many cases, they were exposed prejudice and sometimes even hostile. This shows the history of jeans: in the 1950s as a protest clothes young people frowned upon, they nowadays even entering the conventional offices held, at least to the casual Friday. You spend the rest of the week here still in the classic outfit.
Eye-catching styles, such as in the rockabilly scene, do not fit apparently in such predetermined conventions. For most, heard here the outside lifestyle and is not a fad. It is: rather genuine and authentic instead of dressed up. In many professions, no problem is more today. Because the society has become more tolerant. (Just a woman with a beard of the Eurovision has won song contest.)
But there are still some areas where a “serious” style of dress is prescribed. Is it possible to work in such an area? Should also adapt sake outfit technically her career in professional life? If so, is it compatible with the own life or would that not also a disguise?
Middle Ground As A Solution?
The middle ground as a solution out of this dilemma may work maybe even for the ladies: blouse and pencil skirt in the Bank or in the Office. And honestly I can imagine nothing better. But what do the men? And what if you have tattoos? (Usually there are some.) Let not easy to conceal.
Ultimately, it is a pure matter of opinion. Either you fit in, so well it goes or man leans down this adjustment. Looking for the motto: “but I’m what I am and I’m gonna keep a rockin’ that way” (Matchbox, Rockabilly rebel), a job in the right environment. It’s talking me Graham Fenton absolutely from the soul: “Be a real cool cat, be a rockabilly rebel like me”.
Now you’re next: rockabilly goes also into the profession? What are you wearing on work? What is your opinion on this subject?
