    Your work attire

    What do you wear? I'm considering a one-man protest against shirts and ties. In my last job as a tech between schools, I wore khaki combats and a black polo shirt. This was a lot more comfortable and the trousers a lot tougher than my £8 pair from Asda.

    What do YOU wear?

    Smart clothing required by all staff here: my interpretation is smart black trousers from M&S and an appropriately smart top.

    My shoes are flat and comfortable; suitable for clambering up ladders/on desks (oops... didn't say that)

    Shirt and tie - It doesn't bother me unless I've got my head inside a machine, in which case I just tuck my tie into my shirt.

    I wear trousers and shirt everyday.

    Only problem I have is that as I bike 5 days a week I keep putting 2 little holes in my trousers from the saddle.

    Same. Black shoes, grey trousers, long-sleeved shirt and a tie. Dead cheap at Asda/Tesco - doesn't matter as much when crawling around on floors etc.

    black polo with school name

    black dickies work wear trousers

    black trainers

    I spend far too much time under desks in balls of fluff to wear anything looking nice. I tried it once... didn't work!

    Full suit, shirt, tie, jacket, the lot. If I have to crawl around under a desk, which doesn't happen too often, I hang up the jacket and tuck the tie in.
