    I have thought about wearing a tie. It would be handy to have something to wipe the coffee out of my mustache.

    Black trousers, black T-Shirt, black socks and shoes. In winter a black jacket. When I'm in a good mood (which is almost never) occasionally light colored shirt with tie going with those black trousers.

    Re: work wear

    In this line of work I gave up awhile back trying to look "nice". (Mainly its probably this company/area where I work.) I wear a company provided polo shirt two tone blue. Tshirt underneath. Black pants FTW. and comfortable shoes (Rock ports) I've been tempted to get some boots especially for deliveries and such. If I had the choice I would wear all black too. I would wear jeans but its not really company policy for techs, however for most clients don't give a rip as what we would wear as long we are clean, presentable etc.

    I thought it would be cool sometimes to wear a tie. But then I realized it would just be a hassle.

    Business casual, no tie, we give everyone a few company polo's to mix in with their other stuff.

    Nice dress pants , (Dockers? ) and a button up shirt or polo. Shinable shoes. Winter time boots with good gripper bottoms. Ties went out about 20 plus years ago with me.

    Nice pants, polo shirt in the heat, long sleeve button down in the cold. Decent dress shoes. That's it. When I started in this god awful business, we wore dress slacks, long sleeve shirts, tie, dress shoes, and in the winter we had to wear a sport coat or suit. Glad those days are gone. Customers always ask, "why do you dress that way?". We were told to respond " because we are professionals". That was a crock of s***.

    If you're going to try this, I recommend removing the tie first. =^..^=
    Since I do not do outside calls any more ... I wear Black Rustler jeans and just polo's or regular button-up nice shirts.
    YEP, clean socks and underwear too!

    Back in the day when we were REQUIRED to wear a tie ... SOP was setting your large shears on top of the copier / Printer / typewriter / mimeo / etc where you could get to them quickly.
    It really was great for us when the clip-on tie was accepted by our company.......

    Re: work wear

    You're suppose to wear clothes? hmmm That might explain a few things.

    I know I should be ashamed of myself. Strangely though, I am not.

    When I look at some of the members of my team, I'm very grateful that clothes are compulsory, I'm sure they all feel the same way about me too
