Casual fridays

Hello everyone

We just had our Jeans priviledge (on fridays only) revoked for political reasons. I was wondering if there were a lot of you out there that enjoy that priviledge at your company.

Are you allowed to wear jeans on fridays? If no, what reason have they given for the rule. Here they told us it was to have a more professional image, but everyone else from all other departments (other than IT) are still allowed to wear jeans on fridays.

That's the usual problem

by DMambo In reply to Jeans Outlawed

People either will not or do not know how to reasonably enjoy a privilege. We almost lost our casual dress code when one weenie came in wearing the rattiest looking cutoffs you could imagine. This guy looked like the comics vendor from The Simpsons. Had pretty much the same temperament, too. He got canned, which took the dress code pressure off.

We do not actually have a formal dress code. A few engineers wear jeans every day, but the IT dept (me) usually wears Dockers type pants and a collared shirt. The thing I enjoy most is the freedom to wear whatever shoes I like. Sneakers and hiking shoes go a long way to keeping my feet happy!

mostly thats what I wear

by w2ktechman In reply to That's the usual problem

I prefer khakis, and a shirt with a coller (no graphics), and hiking boots (sometimes tennis shoes).
Mostly, that is what I/we wear around here. On Friday's though, I do get to wear jeans (un-ripped, and looking good).
So to keep the jeans in, I buy a new pair once a year, and I only use it here, so that it will continue to look good.

No pants?

by Oz_Media In reply to Dream BIG!!!

And yet I wasn't addressed in the title? :)

I dream of big pants, anything else seems so...constrictive (in a boa constrictor frame of mind that is). One day they'll make a pair with a crotch like a knapsack and I'll be first in line.

Dare to dream

All personnel will be required to wear a long-sleeved, white-collared shirt, with cuff links, tie and tie tack or lace-ruffle. Plain black, or grey suit coat, calf-high woolen socks, brown or black shoes (shined), and a knee-length, woolen kilt of either plain black, grey, or their family's tartan pattern.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is a professional business environment, underwear is required!
