    Does anyone know if i can claim back or request some other work wear, as i bought a new shirt saturday and its already got dust and ink on it. I try to keep reasonably clean but i am sick of coughing up money for work clothes that get ruined.

    Short answer no long answer no but if they provide a uniform that you wash yourself then you claim some tax back mr taxman.

    Best bet is buy cheap shirts and toursers from tesco's/asda/primark etc then no big issue if they can damaged.

    Now I am the manager and I have kept the Shirt N Tie's because I feel its more professional.

    What’s you opinions….
    never trust a IT support professional who wears a shirt and tie except for very important meetings or job interviews (they're own that is)....

    It appears to be something peculiar to schools, when i worked in industry the
    senior engineers never wore a shirt and tie on a regular basis. In schools, senior IT managers tend to spend a lot more time in meetings and meetings with stakeholders so they probably need to be in that garb a lot of the time, whereas when i worked in the coporate sector the senior managers that spent most of their day in meetings and conference calls tended to be the non-technical members of the team, or it may be that newer technical changes have passed them by so they're left to 'team build' and man manage the IT departments - they also tend to be not that technical because they've been out of the saddle for quite a while.

    A proper engineer/support professional should not wear a shirt and tie. 4 or 5 days of the week

    Who says?
    If the school don't provide a logo polo shirt then a smart shirt looks so much better than a scruffy t shirt or sweatshirt. A tie is a bit of a problem if you are staring down into the innards of a machine when it is on

    Mind you - teachers around here need a bit of a lesson in smart/casual dress themselves.
