An article published by the Wall Street Journal on January 17 quoted Chris Schumacher, a 1999 alum, about the rules and accompanying stigmas of men's jewelry.
From the Wall Street Journal:
Lapel pins can add a hint of personality in more buttoned-up work environments. "A lot of guys in my line of work don't want to draw attention to themselves. They'd rather just wear the uniform," said Chris Schumacher, a 37-year-old Manhattan financier. He wasn't speaking for himself—he's partial to nautical rope bracelets, and wears an enamel fox-hunting pin on his overcoat. He added, "It's nice to see people getting away from just the watch and ring."
