What are you wearing to work today?

Asked by robmandu (21275points) August 18th, 2008

Me? I’m wearing jeans, t-shirt, Chuck Taylors. Like most days.

Is today’s clothing choice the usual for you? How does your appearance compare to your cow-orkers? Do you think your clothes affect your performance? Or maybe how people perceive your performance?

I’ll be wearing scrubs. everybody else wears scrubs (except the patients who will in a tasteful gown stamped with the words property of some hospital I’ve never heard of)

Jeans, black t-shirt, grey jersey flats with printed stars and matching scarf w. accessories.
We have no dress code, so as long as I don’t show up in my PJ’s, I think I’ll be OK.

argaudette's avatar

Old jeans, old t-shirt, dirty old work boots.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

hat, half-gloves, high-flyer jeans, rag in my back pocket like jeff hardy, and a collared t-shirt.

robmandu's avatar

@maniac, might need a snapshot… trying to visualize…

> half-gloves : those the kind without fingers? or just one half of a pair a la Michael Jackson?
> high-flyer jeans : those have an extra tall zipper?
> collared t-shirt : like a polo? or like a tuxedo t?

wrestlemaniac's avatar

no finger, slightly torn jeans, and yes like a polo.

I am wearing these new black and white print capris that I bought on friday. i went shopping because it was tax-free weekend, and then they were 40% off, so i had to get them. i’m also wearing a black fitted capsleeve t-shirt, and ballet-style black flats. i dont think my attire has affect my work today or anyone’s perception of me because i’m the only person in the office right now, and i’m not doing any real work. i dunno where my boss is. he was supposed to be here an hour ago, and i don’t usually any work before he gets here.

@rob and maniac: I was picturing more along these lines….
was hoping to find an image from the film when they wore the torn tux, but no joy

wrestlemaniac's avatar

La_chica_gomela's avatar

La_chica_gomela's avatar

wrestlemaniac's avatar

Bri_L's avatar

@ La Chica gomela – in reference to “its a tax free weekend” what does that mean?

wrestlemaniac's avatar

oh yeah!! kool-aid!

Bri_L's avatar

hehe. Speaking of oh yeah,

Oh yeah, I am wearing shorts, a t-shirt and no shoes as I am working from home.

La_chica_gomela's avatar

In Texas, every August right before school starts, the government gives a three-day “holiday” on sales tax on some items, such as clothing, shoes, and backpacks under a hundred dollars per item.

It’s really cool because the retailers know people are going to be out shopping, so a lot of them have huge sales and promotions to attract people to their stores.

I was head to toe (well, ankle, actually) in Lands End. Khakis and a wrinkle free shirt. I love online shopping. As a matter of fact, I just purchased more stuff I probably don’t need from Lands End.

but it was on clearance. and I got free shipping

ketoneus's avatar

gym shorts and t-shirt this morning. Polo and khaki shorts after returning from the gym. Jeez I love working from home. I haven’t worn pants in over a month.

ninjaxmarc's avatar

I work in a business environment but rarely see customers come in. I’m behind a computer screen and a phone all day.

I go to work in a polo, cargo shorts and my chuck taylors. Just another day at the beach I mean work. ;)

Snoopy's avatar

OK, all: what are chuck taylors? Am I incredibly un-hip or something???

robhaya's avatar

Khakis, Dress Shirt, and Lug Sole loafers; This is my everyday dress code for my work. Clothes can make you feel confident and boost your performance, though I think we need to be treated like adults and be allowed to wear what we want. There are days when I dread having to dress up, when I’m not having any meetings, etc. It would be nice to be able to wear a t-shirt and jeans everyday. We don’t even have casual Friday’s where I work which is a big downer.

Snoopy's avatar

wow. I am un hip. Sigh

peedub's avatar

A bear head, short Nike running shorts, and Tabis. I’m still contemplating a shirt-piece.

Foolaholic's avatar

I work with a non profit organization trying ton rasie money and re-open a local movie theatre. I don’t really have that much to dress up for, so I’m in casual shorts and a funny T-shirt that helps me be more casual with possible small-donation benafactors. However, there’s also several times when we have to meet and have events with the large donation benafactors and the board to trustees, durring which we’ll all have to be dressed up in plain button up shirts and khaki pants, more of a summer formal wear.

@peedub, you must’ve been the most entertaining act in the Russian circus before you escaped. Well played!
