The letter ``New Dress Code Long Overdue,'' Feb. 27, is in itself ``misplaced.''
The original article ``Dressing Down in Corporate America: Is It Progress?'' Feb. 16, is an excellent reason why IBM employees should continue the ``blue suit, crisp white shirt, and wing tip'' look.
Professionally dressed IBM employees demand respect, forcefully represent their company, and impressively demonstrate that they care enough about their customers and products to wear and look their very best. The image is powerfully significant.
IBM should seriously rethink its decision, because there is a lot more weighing on it than may be realized. Amy Hansen, Rexburg, Idaho
