Poll: Dress code
Apologies if this has already been discussed lots, but just curious for those IT bods who work in schools what the dress code is, or at least what do you normally wear?
We have nothing formal at our school, although (as a Network Manager) I was asked to wear shirt and tie, which after 2 years has "deteriorated" to smart jeans, shirt with no tie, and trainers (my shoes fell to bits).

Embroidered polo shirt supplied and work wear black trousers.

I normally wear Company Branded Polo-Shirt, Work trousers, plain black trainers/steel toe caps depending on the job in hand.
The only dress code we are given is "no jeans" by the IT management company that we work for in our school.

Black trousers, black shoes and (usually black) shirt.

I wear trousers/shorts with shirt/tie and shoes.
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!

Being of the pink variety of IT tech support worker, it's blouse or smart top and trousers for me.

There's a poll at the top btw, for those with devices that can see it. I think it must post the thread even before the poll is added.
Sorry for the bewildering options, I got carried away

Polo shirt and smart trousers.
Hate all that shirt thing, just gets in the way of doing my job sometimes.

Agreed. But I know some like the formal thing.

Shoes, shirt, trousers. I tend to get away without a tie - every other male member of staff wears a tie. I think I get away with it thants to the different shirts I wear.
I do get comments though when I sit in on interviews fully suited

No suit, but shirt, tie, smart trousers, shoes here, but many times I wish we had a company Polo shirt, trousers, shoes as I've lost count on the amount of times the tie gets in the way; or trousers and shoes get dirty/damaged etc. doing installations (data cabinets, cable management etc.)
Not sure if this would be applicable for company (supplied) uniforms???

I wear Shirt and smart trousers just because I have been asked to.
During summer hols, I asked if i could change that to jeans coz i am fed up with crawling under desks and various other dusty places to fix things with 'smart' clothes on .. and was told flat out, No!
So why do teachers wear jeans then??
