I don't really like getting dressed for work. I never have. It's like getting dressed for school in a way. For work at home I wear whatever's comfortable. For the office, it's usually dress pants and a button up shirt… Or maybe a turtle-neck or a smart plain well fitting jumper or something.
Jeans on Friday for some reason…?

Just idly wondering what other duckers wore to work?

When I'm at home I like to put on one of my old paint covered sweaters and a old pair of jeans. I like to be comfortable while I'm working on projects. If I have to have a meeting with a client or someone else I put on a pair of dress pants a button down shirt and a tie at the least. If I have to make a really good impression I put on a suit coat. But I usually try to avoid that if I can.

A tie? o_O
I wore one once… When I graduated Uni with my BA.
Very uncomfortable!

They're big on clean-cut, well-dressed individuals around here. Once you get used to the feeling of being constantly choked they're not so bad. Luckily for me, I spend most of my time working at home in photoshop and whatnot.

I should really log off. I spend more time on the forums than most of the admins. -_-

On days I work from home, sometimes I'm still in my pjs come quittin' time :kitty:

Otherwise I get to wear whatever I wear normally, jeans and tshirts. I could dress up a little more but no one cares, so I don't bother.

Plus I kinda don't fit into most of my nicer clothes anymore … :(

I go to school, so I have the whole uniform business: blazer, jumper, tie, shirt and trousers. But of course, since I am a teenager and I must rebel against the Man, Top button not done up, tie done loosely and jumper sleeves rolled up.

Some people say my uniform looks like the one from Hogwarts. :/

That's because it does.


Also, as I work at McDonald's, I have to wear that blue button-up shirt and horribly-fitting black pants. D:

I normally just wear whatever I have lying around, which mostly consists of paint covered over-alls (or boiler suits, I forget which is the right name), an old RAF coat which smells like an old attic, and a fedora if it's cold. The places I worked at didn't have dress codes or anything though, so it didn't matter.

If you care: a local family run corner shop and a small workshop that mostly made decorative cupboards.

I used to work in places with dress codes, so I wore dress shirts, ties and sweaters. Unfortunately I only own three dress shirts, two ties (three if you count the Batman one,) and one pair of pants without holes. So I was always doing laundry. Now I work in a place with a dress code that's fairly lax, so I generally just wear whatever I have lying around. A leather jacket or a jean-jacket with studs and patches, Chucks or boots and pants that I can bicycle in.

I wear anything I'm not too attached to, because I never know what chemical is going to destroy my clothes next at work. We have to wear long pants and leather-topped boots.

McDonald's pants come in two sizes: Too small and chunky and too big and chunky.
I do believe someone mentioned that you can wear other black jeans instead of the issued ones… I'll have to ask the manager about that.

I wear a black and silver pinstriped apron, black pants, a wife beater and a white short sleved chef shirt for my job. I don't like wearing that stuff becuase it attracts stains like no other. @_@

I wear slacks cause that is all I own…I've not owned jeans in over a decade. I have one skirt but yeah, I'm not going to wear a skirt to work. And I wear any shirt that is clean…and matches.

I used to have a job where I dressed up all the time…I think I wore high heels everyday. Now I'm just to lazy to do that.

It ranges between business casual and formal for work. When home I wear baggy pants and a t-shirt, or nothing. It depends on my mood when I get home.

Why not skip the shirt and pants and just wear the dress? >:)

Wow, a lotta choice…
What do you guys prefer? Dressy stuff or being casual? Personally, dressy stuff is fine for once in a while, but not every day. I'd prefer casual.

Ah, uniforms would make it so easy. I envy the uniform people. ^^

Casual, I work much better, and feel better on how I look when I wear jeans to work.

I have to say casual, because I have never worn formal clothes in my entire life.

Whenever I have a gig (which is like… twice a year), I have to wear all black or white over black. It depends if I'm in the pit or not.

But usually, the one that hires me tells me what to wear.

To practices, I can wear whatever I want, but I have to look a little bit decent. I want to be hired again!

This year, school's full of BS!!!

I like the feel of slacks and a good pair of loafers. but I despise button up shirts and ties, ugh. Also I've worn uniforms (not military/police mind you). It can be fun at first, but then it can start to feel degrading. you become invisible. and not in a good way. It also depends on the uniform, and the job involved.

I usually wear casual, and formal for certain special occasions.

I go to school, and as a senior student I have to wear full school uniform-tie, big shirt, long pants-every day. It's incredibly badly designed for the summer here-even with anti-antiperspirant I end up sweating.

I have a feeling my school uniform is the reason why I inexplicably want to be a nudist.

At university I just wear jeans and a blue t-shirt (Untucked of course). However, when it's winter I throw a jacket on. I'd wear something more casual, but it feels weird going into Sydney in anything else.

When I worked at the restaurant is was a nice button-up white shirt and black pants (then either a bowtie for bussers or fancy collar for servers - I did both).

When I worked at the bank, the dress code became one of the reasons I left. The official code was “business casual” so I wore dress pants with a nice shirt. Which was within the dress code. The higher ups took offense to this and I was constantly called into the office to discuss my appearance. I was supposed to “dress for the job you want, not the one you have.” (I hated ALL banking jobs - this advice was not useful.) At any rate, it always put me in mind of Office Space and the stinking pieces of flare. Just tell me how you want me to dress then!

I left there to work for a motorcycle dealership, where they basically told me to wear jeans.

Now I work for a newspaper. They have given me no dress code, but I've found that unemployment sucks, so I'm sticking with business casual for now. Nice pants and a shirt that looks okay but is comfortable. Win!

I'm allowed to dress in a casual fashion, but I feel sort of weird about doing it. I'll end up in “business casual” or a step above…nice shirts with pants or skirts. Jeans on Fridays or if I know I'll be building something or hauling around boxes (“office manager” covers oh-so-many things).

Once I'm home, though, it's straight into the jammies.
