    What do you & the teachers wear to work?

    From some of the posts on here, I was wondering how everyone dressed at work. Seems quite a few of you are in jeans and T-Shirts.

    I wear a suit to work, just seems the right thing to do! The teachers also come in well dressed.

    At my last school the teachers were a right bunch of scruffy urchins, but I still came in a suit. However my technician wore the same every day, white t-shirt, blue jeans (I assumed he had a number of white t-shirts!)

    Does the way the teachers dress reflect the way we turn up to work?

    Edit: Fixed Typo!

    Shirt, Tie, trousers and black shoes. Sometimes a suit if we have specific visitors.

    All teachers dress the same give or take a tie.

    I wear trousers and shirt.

    Get fed up with a tie getting in the way.

    If it's a speical function or I've been to a job interview or just want to make them think I've been to a job interview then I'll wear a suit.

    Shirt and Tie for me. But I could come in Jeans and t-shirt and nobody would blink an eyelid. The school dress code is pretty upto you here - there's no real restrictions, a lot of the staff dress scruffy. There are one or two of the female kind who dress far to skimpy for a school in my opinion - especially with the age group they are working with. I think in general, dress code has become less important not just in schools, but in business too. I mean, with the amount of money we pay to Bill Gates and Steve Jobs (and the like) you'd think they could do better than jeans and t-shirt when they turn up at a key-note address.

    Smart trousers, shoes and tops for me. Shirt and tie for the boss.

    I go for jeans and trainers in the holidays though - I spose that will be one thing I miss about this job...

    Re: What do you & the teachers wear to work?

    I have to wear shirt, tie and trousers. Sometimes I go the whole hog and wear a suit but most of the time I just wear a jumper or fleece over the top (as all our corridors are outdoors...).

    Re: What do you & the teachers wear to work?

    black shoes, no tie, trouser and what ever random colour shirt I pull out mostly gray, blue or red. Jeans and t-shirt on Inset days though I could wear jeans every day and no one would say a thing.

    Re: What do you & the teachers wear to work?

    Grey trousers, black shoes and dark polo shirt - but they would like me to wear a suit - but I've no desire to be up to my elbows in printer toner in my expensive clothes. I worked in a big multinational before this job and there was no dress code there at all - was quite surpised to be interviewed by someone in T shirt & jeans - must say it didn't diminish our professionalism in any way - I'd sooner jeans etc if it were allowed.
