Wear a suit? He’s a “pimp”.

I have been an engineer for 13 years, and I notice that when I don the regular business casual attire, colleagues not directly in my department think I’m either in food or custodial services. Now I wear a tie daily, and the “compliment” I get is that I look like a pimp. Why can’t I look like an engineer? Or a businessman? I’ll even take lawyer. Why does a tie on me make me look like a sex trafficker, and how is that a compliment?
