    Shirt and tie here, it gets tough sometimes - especially when your under desks and crawling around. Hot weather is going to make it worst.

    I wore a suit when I first started here, it was ruined after less than 3 months. Now I wear 'smart casual trousers' & shirt, no tie. Short sleeved in summer, long sleeved in winter. The technicians who work with me are similarly attired. We were offered school polo shirts but they were more expensive than buying ordinary shirts so we gave them a miss.

    Gatt - buy some quality polo's and get the textiles department to embroider them (probably cheaper!)

    Trousers and polo shirt, sometime shirt and tie but only for special occasions. Jeans is a bit too casual here as the students all have to wear trousers and polo shirt.

    Smart casual here, although I tend to lean towards the casual. Currently in Alien Hominid T-shirt, cargo style trousers and black boots. Always the black boots.

    Though I wish I could swing it for Grommits dress code.......

    Black jeans (basically black trousers but harder to kill), cheapo 10 black shoes (destroyed by my feet in a year), black socks (cheap), my choice of long or short sleeved shirt (currently a very faded once-red shirt from about 6 years hence).

    Tie doesn't happen unless it's a parents eve/special occasion. I have a collection of IT themed ties for that. Can't be doing with dangly things in my way.

    Non-uniform days - same apart from the shirt..usually a T-Shirt, usually black, usually Thinkgeek. Probably the "I void warranties" one, this next time.

    T shirt, or shirt, black jeans or karkis. Its too hot in my room for much else and ties and me don't mix well.

    The first school I worked at insisted I wore a suit every day... which I did reluctantly... Along with Steel-Toe CAT boots...

    The second school I worked at was a bit more relaxed, so got away with shirt and tie... Until I asked if I could wear something more suitable - polo shirt & tougher pants...

    Didn't really ask when I got to my current job, just started as I meant to go on... Got some dickies on order, but just wear steel-toe boots, polo shirts (primark's wicked for cheap ones, and decent sizes)...

    I'd hate to have to go back to shirt & tie now... far too awkward.
