Lloyd’s loosens its tie (rules)

Had a different post planned for today, but this article about Lloyd’s of London, from behind the Financial Times paywall is the perfect segue into the Memorial Day Weekend:

… over the past few months the insurance market has quietly started to relax its strict tie policy. While it has not yet formally repealed the rule, it is no longer enforcing it strictly.

A spokesperson for Lloyd’s said that the new policy was “in keeping with the norms of business dress in the City”.

One underwriter who works at Lloyd’s welcomed the move. “It’s the right thing to do,” he said. “If you had walked around without a tie 10 years ago it would have been the same as wearing a yellow mankini but this is part of general modernisation.”

… could do without the mankini reference, though.
