    Dress down days are an absolute pain in the arse. Either have a casual dress code or don't.
  3. Trying to imagine what Dress Down Friday might have been like for the Yellow Peril at the Dewhirst's clothing factory.

    Picture a recruitment agency (behind the Market Lane pub - Kelburn???) where you see wall to wall this. Backfired, perhaps not. From a professional point of view, perhaps.


    It was a little distracting undergoing interview for sure.

    Am I getting the hang of picture posting now?

    Used to do this over 20 years ago - became a fashion show for the ladies and the lads had their Friday drinking gear on.

    Do it at our place, always the ones wearing zany T-shirts I anticipate to be involved in human trafficking.

    Dress down - bollocks!

    The world seems to have been on a downward trajectory towards ever more casual clothes in the workplace. How long before we all just chuck in the towel and come to work in pyjamas?

    Hospital scrubs used to be for people doing surgery in the OR. Now everyone from the janitor to the receptionist up to the chief surgeon rolls up in scrubs.

    I’m flighting a rearguard action against this sloppiness. Love getting suited and booted for work.

    Hate working in offices and wearing a shirt and trousers. While men are limited in what smart clothes they can wear, women can practically whatever they like, generally what's light and comfortable. Then they insist on having the place heated to approximately the temperature of what they'd incubate dinosaur eggs in the Jurassic Park lab to compensate, so you're roasting and uncomfortable all day.

    ...oh, and to add insult to injury, the guys in IT who earn more than me get to swerve this and dress in scruffy tshirts and have beards like they've been sleeping in a bin behind Lidl.

    This is how we lost the empire.
    We British used to be able to handle all climates.
    I checked the temperature the other day. It was 88F.

    That was the temperature of the water in the pool!

    Still went out suited and booted.

    (The house has A/C as does the car, the airport, the rental car, the hotel, the hospital where I worked etc).

    Nowts the bother if you’re not a whingeing soft shite and have a few ounces of dignity and self respect to not want to leave the house looking like a schlub.
