State Government, so expectations are high, but strictness isn't super strict. Lowest acceptable dress is khaki pants with a preferably plain colored/striped/small logo-ed Polo, and dress shoes of some form.

Right now got some brown loafers, khakis, brown braided belt, and thin athletic dark-blue Polo.

Some days I come to work in slacks, black dress shoes/belt, and a nice button up with a tie just to throw people off.

When I showed it to the interview in a 3-piece suit, the interviewing committee was 100% surprised.

No dressing code in our company (fortunately) as long as your clothes are clean and accurate. Just be reasonable and look like a decent person :smile2:/> For example, right now I'm wearing shorts and Metallica T-shirt :punk:/>

Only on a programming forum will you see "Free rein == no pants" as opposed to "free rein = no pants"


I had to read this four times before I even caught the difference.

Jeans and Ts, though I prefer polos. Last time we dressed up in Pea Coats, good black shoes, and slacks, we got chewed out by another department for it. Apparently it doesn't represent the fact that we're workers very well. I think it's more because they don't like to admit that the tech department isn't at their pay grade or bs scale.

No real dress code. I generally wear jeans and a t-shirt. The other guy in the office sometimes wears high heels and nail polish..

My dress code right now is don't look like a Hobo, unless it's dress like a hobo day. A far cry from where I used to work. They went so far as to send out quarterly reminders on what was acceptable and not acceptable dress including images and such. It was always business attire except on Fridays or when the local football team won the game then it was Business Casual.

Anything I feel like wearing as long as not being overly "stupid" :D..

Well it's because the work that I do don't interface directly with clients and customers ( as if we are invisible), so the IT dept is exempt from wearing those uptight office wears

July 3rd is Independence Day in the Office.

Anyone who wears a patriotic shirt is allowed to wear jeans. Guess I need to go Indiana Jones'ing in my closet and find my old American Flag denim button-up shirt.

Every job I've had in IT has required the dress code of business casual with some companies allowing for a casual day where you can wear jeans and t-shirts. The current company has EVERY Friday as casual Friday.

Are you going to break it to them that it's not Independence Day anywhere else?
