British Businessmen Go for Power in the Black & White Suit

by Rachel Yeomans | October 2nd, 2009   

The 2009 Travelodge discarded clothing catalogue released today, has revealed that British workers are taking their fashion advice from Quentin Tarantino and are power-dressing in black and white; like the sharp suited stars from ‘Reservoir Dogs’ – in order to be seen as leaders in the workplace.

The hotel chain’s annual clothing inventory report has revealed that 60% of the 14,786 shirts left behind at Travelodge hotels were white. Whilst 80% of the 1005 discarded business suits and 40% of the 3,105 forgotten ties were black. In addition 50% of the 69,986 socks left behind by customers were also black.

To further investigate into the trend of monochrome (black and white) business attire being left behind at its hotels – Travelodge surveyed 5,000 British workers to obtain their views on business wear.
