I am also getting away with wearing black jeans, because they're jet black and more durable than trousers. This happened a few years ago and started a trend. The Science techs and cover supervisors now have their own kit in different colours. Ours is black, science get red, cover supers get blue.
    Yeah our cleaners, site team and midday supervisors have these polo shirts with logo's on in different colours depending on which department. Seem to be catching on very well - only a matter of time before they make their way up here. To be honest I don't think I'd mind too much, although it's nice to 'dress up' (or at least have the option) a bit some days, depending on what you have planned.

    Short-sleeved shirt, no tie, smart trousers and some comfy, albeit smart black boots. Only downside is I've been squeaking down the corridors recently after any rain.

    Whatever I feel like!

    Blue jeans are the only exception (but black jeans - fine!)

    It vary from full suit, to shirt and tie, to cargos and a t-shirt. I know when I've gone too far as the Head will ask if I bothered changing clothes last night!

    Dark coloured cargo trousers for me - very comfy, and 6 pockets are great for dropping tools, network cables, phones etc into

    we don't really have a dress code but I wear shirt, trousers, jumper and shoes as it's something i'm just used to from my old job. In the holidays I wear jeans and t-shirt.

    Shirt, tie, black trousers and shoes as standard

    In winter I'll add a plain jumper

    In summer I can wear plain fitted shorts.

    We wear an IT Team Black Polo shirt with the school badge, and Black electrician style trousers with safety boots. Beats wearing my own gear and getting it ruined.

    I would LOVE an IT polo shirt. Make my life so much easier. I wear smart trousers and boots (for 9 months of the year) and a neat jumper or shirt. Sometimes a jacket if I'm feeling smart.

    What always makes me laugh is when the staff inadvertently wear clothes in the school uniform colours - especially when they are smaller than some of the year 8s.

    Full suit, nightmare when crawling under desks or behind cabs. My technician was the same until I pointed out that he would be doing a lot more of the dirty jobs like crawling about and the dress code wasn't suited to that. He now has cargo pants and a dark blue polo shirt with school crest on.

    Currently wear black polo shirt with the school crest, black pants and black plimsolls. Will be moving to a new school in a few weeks and it will be back to shirt and tie. Think I prefer that actually as it gives off a much better impression and I like wearing suits :P they arnt very practical though!
