    I wear shorts on warmer days as the women get to wear skirts and HT said it was ok, I did say I could wear a kilt but it would be a bit impractical!

    Polo shirts with name and school logo on, black cargo pants and black safety boots or shoes. Holidays can wear anything we like.

    Shirt, Tie, Smart trousers and shoes was for us unless its a planned messy day then its more practical stuff. It should have been a suit really but got away without it and when cold just wore a school fleecey top from PE.

    In the holidays anything goes unless its likely to cause offence or have a meeting / visitor etc..

    Me in maglement: Suite, with or with out a tie depending on the image I need to project that day. Holidays: what ever. But a the suite no tie look commands the respect of the various project managers on site, and scruff shorts with well worn PPE gets the respect of those actually working :0)

    My team: shirt + trousers.

    Since taking on a technician here, I now am suited and booted. Used to be shirt/tie/trousers but made it a suit as I have some 'manglement responsibilities' supposedly...

    Somehow, its made the kids scared of me though...

    No suit, but shirt, tie, smart trousers, shoes
    Except I don't wear smart trousers (I think I should, but it's too impractical) instead I wear black 'utility' trousers. Still the same material as smart pants, but with more room to move (baggier, I guess?) and they have side pockets at the knees (think what your plasterer or plumber probably wears for all his screwdrivers, etc, same reason). And it's steel-toe-capped boots for me.
    Way I see it, if I'm crawling around under desks I need more room to move (or I give everyone a nice shot of the ol' builder's bum) - and there's no way I'm risking dropping a PC on my foot! It costs far more to keep me off for 6 months with a broken foot than it does to replace a tower!

    I wish I didn't have to wear a tie, though.

    I comply with the school dress code... office wear. In my case: smart trousers, blouse/smart top. Jeans are only allowed in the holidays... or by special arrangement if I have a particularly grotty job to do that has to be done during lessons time.

    Smart trousers, neat top, usually boots. I don't know of a dress code although all male teachers wear a tie - except the tech teacher who says it would be dangerous.
    Male SLT wear suits, females smart skirt or suit. I think there should be more of a dress code for all staff and TAs. I would be happy to wear a branded polo shirt as it would save me wearing out my own clothes and having to think what to wear at 6am

    Depends on the occasion, suit for meeting people, shirt and tie trousers and DM's for normal every day and our lovely Rocket Red tops with the school badge for when we win something/ do really well or have a sports day.
