UBS Dress Code Under Scrutiny


Swiss banking giant UBS has issued a 44-page dress code for its employees.

It’s certainly no ordinary dress code. Besides covering the typical things like the color of suits, it also advises employees on odd things like dietary tips, length of toenails, and appropriate underwear.

The dress code applies to employees who deal with clients only. It is an attempt by top execs to improve UBS’s image, which has been hit hard by the financial crisis. 

The code says "women should not wear shoes that are too tight-fitting as there is nothing worse than a strained smile".

The code also advises against eating garlic and onions.

In response to the negative backlash pertaining to its new dress code, UBS says it has been "misunderstood."
