empty suit - Computer Definition
A derisive term for an anonymous business executive or bureaucrat lacking in both individuality and substance, i.e., a phony. Such a person is little more than a suit of clothes.As we used to say when I was a young man in Texas, such a person is all hat and no horse, i.e., a drugstore cowboy. A suit, especially an empty suit, is in sharp contrast to a techie. See also suit and techie.
