What Do You Wear For Work?

As I was getting ready for work today I was thinking back to my previous life as a management consultant in England and the racks of suits, dress shirts and ties that I no longer wear. Thank God!

I try to spend as little time as possible deciding what to wear for work - khakis and a polo shirt (business casual) suits me fine.

That got me wondering about other people in the web biz - does anyone have to wear a tie on a regular basis these days? So I thought I'd create this poll to find out:

My first Job out of college was working on the executive floor of a major U.S. defense contractor (updating their intranet,) so dress pants, shirt and tie were the code. Now that I'm working at a web firm, Khakis and a polo are acceptable--but I can't afford to buy all new clothes so I still wear the dress pants and shirts. :) Better to be slightly overdressed than underdressed.

The official rule at my current job is "Jeans are not preferred," but it isn't a problem whenever someone wears them.

Scott - that must be quite amusing to see you there in your smart getup. I hope your colleagues don't find out your secret!

I couldn't bear to go back to wearing a tie - I think it would actually rule out a job for me. The question is, what to do with all the cufflinks I've amassed over the years?

He..he..nice poll.

I wore suit only once in my life. When I graduated in my high school some 10+ years ago. It's not that I didn't liked it (well, I was not happy eather) but I looked kind of funny so...tees and jeans for me.

I have to wear a shirt, shoes and trousers, and I'm supposed to wear a tie but I work for a large public sector organisation so thats the standard. It would be nice to be able to wear whatever I wanted.

I only have to wear a suit for weddings and funerals, so Andy, I feel for you.

I just don't see the point if you are in an internal role - I wonder why large organizations such as those in the public sector stick to these 'archaic' rules?

Good that we can dress even pyjamas :) I think that is old stuff for our time have rules on dress for workers
