Letters: A shirt and tie are no substitute for knowledge

I was surprised to find that Dr Lancelot seems to be impressed by the authority expressed by means of power dressing (GP, 12 December).

I noticed the gentleman stocking the shelves in our local supermarket wears a shirt and tie. Would he attribute him with the same sense of knowledgeable authority?

I can't say that I trust managers more just because they wear shirt and tie.

For myself, I am happy to be accepted and respected by my patients and colleagues for my actions rather than dress sense which could possibly do with some improvement.
