Uhm, not a good counter example, since a suit is:

a) Gender correct for a man (or to go broad, gender neutral, if you
include dress suits for women)

b) Reasonable in a work environment

A better counter example might be if you were forced to wear a certain
color shirt, or pants, etc... (Although waiters live through this
requirement on a daily basis, i.e. corp. polo shirt & khackis or tuxedo
shirt and black slacks, etc.)

My view of employment is this:

They offer you a job, you choose to accept it - if you don't like what
is offered (working conditions, sartorial expectations, compensation,
technology, coworkers, etc), then don't accept the job. If they change
the job, feel free to leave - if your situation is such that you can;t
leave (economy, job market, other), then learn to accept your place on
the food chain and reassess your positions.
