Great picture Steve. I couldn't quite find you but then I noticed the cowboy hat.


LOL, I forgot that was in there.

Steve,

Excuse the tangent. I like you have the choice to dress as I feel appropriate. Early on I also worked in a place where the Office Staff had to dress with slacks and collars. I dressed in jeans and a shirt collared or not, no one ever called me on it. Today about the only time I put on slacks and a collar is when I speak to the public or present at a conference. Those I work with know that it is not what you wear but what you do that is important. FYI other than when I was attending a funeral during work hours the last time I wore a tie to work was probably over 35 years ago.

A friend told me that one time during the Korean War that they had to polish their shoes, and wear freshly cleaned and starched uniforms in the foxholes during monsoon season for an inspection by the General. I equate wearing a tie with that same level of silliness.

Well, I am the odd man out on this topic; I voluntarily wear a tie and sport coat to work every day. Now, I don't mind that other people prefer more casual attire at all. But for me, I feel... more work-oriented when I wear shirt and tie. It has taken on a sort of "uniform" aspect for me, and it helps me establish that separation between "work mode" and "personal mode".

I will say, however, that I do believe some places have gotten somewhat out of hand. While I don't believe you have to wear a tie to act or be treated professionally, I generally don't want to see your underwear hanging out. And holes in your clothes? Unless you're doing something physical, or you come in after hours, holes are just something that don't need to be there.

Now get off my lawn.
