Well, to be fair, that is a separate discussion. Much as one may hate it (or not, horses for courses), dress code is in some cases what we could call a "marketing" aspect. There is nothing intrinsically wrong with that and, as I do, I imagine Dr. Taylor does wear a suit when he has to do the rounds for raising funds or similar. In the same way, I don't expect anybody to wear a suit when going to a heavy metal concert or playing rugby.

The problem that I have with this article is that it appears to strongly imply that this man's competence or lack thereof is somehow related to his aesthetic tastes. That, in my opinion and with all respect to the author, is the sort of "form above substance" idiocy that leads to this: School sends 152 pupils home over uniform dispute.
