Do you see these things as being unprofessional? William does.

In this article (link to, etiquette expert William Hanson tells us what he considers to be unprofessional in the workplace.

Things he mentions:

  • tattoos
  • nose rings and piercings
  • tie clips
  • too much perfume (something I don’t like either!)
  • charity bangles (What are they? Perhaps something like this?)
  • visible hair roots
  • high heels (not more than 3 inches)
  • brown shoes with suit
  • waistcoat
  • stubble (What is it? Look here!)
  • backpacks

I’d say that it very much depends on your place of work whether this is acceptable or not. Do you agree?
