Jeans, t-shirt, trainers.

Sometimes, if a customer comes in, I might don a casual shirt. But usually I'll just stick with the t-shirt.

I normally wear a dress shirts at my work. Though, it is not formally stated that you need to dress that way (I've seen a few colleagues with T-shirts), I still do.

This probably has to do with the fact that in the rules, there is this statement/line: "Every employee must be dressed appropriate, because he/she is representative for the company." Guess, I'll go for the semi-formal option :P

I ware whatever I want. If I'm meeting with clients, then it's dress shoes, dress pants, button shirt & tie. If I'm just working on stuff for customers, then it's jeans & a t-shirt &/or jeans & a collar shirt. When I do wear a tshirt it's usually my business ad shirt.

Business casual. All the time. We don't even get casual Fridays. :cry2:

Khakis, sweaters, loafers, button downs... every. single. day.

Sometimes I miss freelancing in my bathrobe.

We get to use tshirts and jeans. NICE jeans though, none of that crap with holes in them and stuff. Imagine what a 25 year old would wear to a 7pm dinner party with friends. That.

In my experience the dress code depends on the type of Business you are working in. If it is an IT group within a larger corporation then typically it's Business Casual (Dress shirt/pants/shoes and tie). If you're with a strickly IT Shop meaning there is no other part of the business then you'll find more relaxed dress codes usually.

ohh, and for me its dress shirt/pants/shoes and tie M-Thu and on friday we get to "let your hair down" and not wear a tie.

I used to work at a smaller company where shorts and flip flops were fine, now I work for a really big company and it's business casual. I've been leaving my shirt untucked for a while now and nobody has said anything, I'm such a rebel!

Here it's Business Casual M-Thu, Casual Fri. However, my manager used to have a restriction on t-shirts for the Underwriters, but since I'm not an Underwriter, I got away with it. Never did find out why he had them Business casual m-f!

Whatever I want. I used to wear a tie, then my team lead said "We didn't hire you for your looks, you know." I'm still not sure if I should feel flattered or insulted.

At my workplace, we have a very strict smiles only policy where every employee is required to wear nothing but a smile.



But seriously, my office is very laid back, most people wear jeans now that it's so cold outside here but some people are still wearing shorts and flip-flops.
