OK, I spoke about wearing a suit as a worst case scenario example.
I didn't mean that literally. Sorry for being unclear. What do you mean
by 'looking more professional'? Wearing the same Debian Tshirts maybe?
I believe the fact that Debian booth people are non-paid volunteers
gives less room for things like booth policies. (Which doesn't mean we
couldn't agree on such a thing, of course.) The fact there generally is
less money for a Debian booth than for e.g. a HP booth, also contributes
to the difference in appearance.
