"Then Khakis and a button down long sleeve shirt but wear a lab coat over that when working in the machine shop or oils, greases, or other chemicals.  Decent work shoes and keep a pair of dressier shoes for those (in)frequent meetings."

"Go with indgo blue jeans and a fitted suit shirt.  When the jeans fade you have to replace them.  Think about what you can wear with a blazer and look good.  That should set the tone."

Use of online brain training tools to improve 'manly skills'

Does anyone out there has experience using online brain training tools (i.e. luminosity, elevate) to increase skills like concentration, comprehension, vocabulary, etc. Specifically, after staying with their program for awhile, do you notice yourself improving in those areas in the real world? I know research on the effectiveness of such tools is mixed and seems to come down on the unfavorable side, but I'd be interested in hearing any first hand accounts.See More
