Most did, some didn't (you know who you are!).
This morning IFAonline ran a story about the FSA considering imposing a dress code on advisers - depending on their independence or otherwise - as an additional way of helping consumers better understand the service they are being offered.
IFAs will be told to wear "neutral" colours, we reported, while restricted advisers should wear red to "warn" clients of their limited market reach. Multi-ties should "mix and match". Apparently.
We also ran a blog, written by the debonair Lawrence Gosling, in a final bid to confuse you all.
It didn't work. Well, not quite.
One reader, aptly calling themselves Mickey Mouse, asked: "Are you making this up?", while another admitted: "I'm ashamed to say I forgot what date it was!"
"One has to assume this is an April fool," said a third.
Most, however, cottoned on immediately, and even had some suggestions to take the idea further.
One reader recommended we venture further into the FSA's Policy Statement, where the regulator apparently proposes IFAs "spray themselves with a good squirt of Eau De Sanctimonious."
Reader David Curley suggests: "Wealth managers could wear Savile Row, generalist IFAs could wear M&S, multi-tied advisers should wear Matalan and tied and direct sales people...TK Maxx!"
OK, so, as a prank, it wasn't of the calibre of Brass Eye's Cake, but we're thrilled (worried?) we had one or two of you scratching your heads.
Happy Easter (and happy April Fools!)
