    I would definantly have to agree that shirt and tie looks proffesional. But I think ties get in the way and get dirty really easily. How professional would a technician with a dirty tie and shirt look not very proffesional at all I would say.

    Personally, I think it is down to the image that you would like to project. If you want to give the impression that you are professional, then shirt and tie is the way to go. If you want to wear your best Star Trek or Oasis tee shirt along with the baggy jeans then.........

    Cheers

    Re: Shirts n ties OR T-shirts

    Never been one to care about my image , I prefer people to judge me by my actions rather than my dresscode. I am happy knowing that people come to me out of respect for knowing that I can help them with their problem rather than because I wear a tie and look all pretty

    (though it should also be said that I am not really bothered about being viewed as a professional, I am what I am..a nerd who tinkers with computers, I'm happy with that definition )

    Re: Shirts n ties OR T-shirts

    Start the day off (usually) with a shirt and tie, as the day progresses the tie tends to come off and I'll go open collar.

    If I have any meetings or important 'professional looking stuff to do then the tie goes back on.

    Never wear a suit, don't own one anymore.

    Only problem at this place with going open collar is that we have name badges on dangly things to wear. they look damn silly without a tie on.

    True.. might be slightly better than the string vest option mentioned on the previous page though

    I too stopped wearing ties because they always got dirty and ruined.

    Open the collar further and have it as a Medallion


    And for the people saying ties get dirty and ruined, then the easiest solution is to stop doing that sort of work and spend more time at your desk drinking coffee. Everyone probably thinks thats all you do anyway.

    Shirts and ties for us, apart from holidays when scruffy gear is allowed. Plea to SMT to wear casual gear such as polo shirts went unheard fell on deaf ears.

    Re: Shirts n ties OR T-shirts

    I'd rather be known for being professional from my actions and the work I do than present a false image, as happens a lot in IT. I'm not saying those on here do it (fact you post here states you're more professional than most) but in my previous job we had some "professional" analysts who did the same job as me, wore suits, knew how to talk about it but couldn't do any of the work without one of us scruffs helping them every step of the way.

    Clothing means nothing, suit would put me off rather than make me think someone knows what they're doing and mostly because of those bad past experiences of suited IT folks :-|

    Re: Shirts n ties OR T-shirts

    I wear a suit here - its surprising how many people have mentioned not liking / don't wear a suit. I must say though Im not afraid to get my hands dirty and the dry cleaning bills cost me a fortune. The technician here wears a shirt and tie and I think thats good as the professional look is important.

    I have had polo shirts printed with school logo for both me and the technician which we can get changed into if necessary during the day.
