Q: I’m a mid-level associate at an 80-lawyer firm and I want to make partner. I don’t ever hear any negative feedback about my work, but I’ll be the first to admit that I dress poorly, drive a crappy car (1998 Ford Ranger), and don’t otherwise have sophisticated tastes. I wasn’t concerned about this until yesterday when a partner said off the cuff that I would never make partner driving a POS and wearing Men’s Wearhouse. I thought he was joking, but none of the other partners in the room laughed. Okay, I get it. So where should I buy my suits and what kind of car should I get?
