    What do you wear to work?

    Odd question, but curious.

    Do people wear business dress such as suits, or tend to lean more towards lab coats etc.

    Do your schools have a staff dress code?

    There are several threads on this topic
    Poll: Dress code

    Our dress code is "smart, no jeans, ties for men"

    Depends on the day, as we plan everything the day before. If it is going to be a messy day, jeans/jogging bottoms and a tshirt with trainers. A normal run of the mill day would be shirt, trousers, tie (optional), shoes or black trainers.

    I'm employed by one site to take care of several others so smart is the general theme.

    I go for shoes, trousers, shirt & tie. I also add a waistcoat as it allows me to keep my tie out of the way.

    We used to wear shirts and ties, but when our nice clothes were getting ruined from being in ceilings and crawling under dirty, dusty desks and covered in stuff from drilling holes for cabling, we petitioned for some work wear.

    We now have polo shirts, jumpers and sweaters provided by the school, with the school logo on and "ICT" underneath. 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.
