    Same here. I was sick of wrecking ties. I wear shoes, trousers and a plain jumper or polo.

    Re: Dress Code

    All staff have to look reasonably smart. I wear black trousers and (at this time of a year) a polo neck sweater. I'm careful to choose work trousers that wash and tumble dry easily as I spend too much time crawling under desks!

    lol thats what ive always thought. they can wear jeans and t-shirt but we apparantly have to dress smart

    i normally wear trousers or dark jeans and a school polo shirt, although the polo shirts are starting to fall apart a bit now
    im starting to wear more shirts to be honest because although less practical they also look less geeky

    Re: Dress Code

    I wear trousers shirt and tie. When I started I wore quite expensive shirt and trousers... quickly learnt the error of my ways and now I'm on Asda trousers :P
    I've never had a job where i've gone through trousers so quickly!
    From our school we do ICT outreach support (mainly to primary schools in the local area) so we have to look fairly smart for that I suppose- I don't really mind though.

    During the holidays we wear casual, mainly because thats when we're normally moving loads of stuff.

    do your site maintenance staff wear a shirt and tie?

    I wear casual. I would like to wear my liverpool fc tops and t shirts but i cannot walk around the school with carlsberg plastered across my chest!
    Site maintenance wear polo shirt or normal with logo on, with usually casual trousers.

    Same here shirt, trousers and tie etc through hols what we want. However, if doing something like climbing under lots of tables etc then will wear jeans and t-shirt.

    Also like Richard cheap shirts etc primemark/tescos are a good place to buy clothes.

    In addition, did you know if you have uniform and you wash it yourself you some money back from the taxman.

    Re: Dress Code

    Used to wear normal run of the mill work trousers with whatever top was appropriate for the time of year, but now wear smart, dark jeans most days as I don't have to wear formal trousers for my afternoon job. No one's said anything yet and its not like they're ripped or scruffy.

    Can't see what difference it makes as long as you get your work done and you don't have your flesh on show ladies! Of course if I was attending a meeting, trousers & a nice fitted shirt would be the most appropriate attire. 8)

    Re: Dress Code

    @mrforgetful surely your stud would fall out of the pocket in the shirt every time you bent down?

    Dress code at my old place for paid ICT staff had used to be trousers, shirt and tie. Even the site manager wore that sort of thing. But in the years i was at that school i'd seen the site manager go from care taker unblocking drains to quite a fancy office and doing stuff with building projects. etc.

    As a student tech I obviously just wore whatever I was wearing to VI Form that day...usually jeans and a t-shirt. Paid staff wore general casual out of term time.

    And you would be correct, I do lose quite a few and am down to my last one now. Good job I buy online for a couple of quid and don't pay the outrageous street prices!
