    Shirts n ties OR T-shirts

    Just want a quick poll on this,

    When i started working in a school Shirts n ties had to be worn, then
    I had a new manager who pushed for logo T-shirts, then another change at the top put us back into Shirts n ties.

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

    What’s you opinions….

    Ties aren't practical when you're grovelling about under desks.

    Re: Shirts n ties OR T-shirts

    I personally think shirts and ties looks a bit daft on technical staff when they're crawling around under desks or leaning over computer equipment the just get in the way.

    I wear a short sleeved shirt at work but would prefer just to wear plain dark t-shirts instead. I doubt anyone would bat an eyelid either.

    If I was hiring in an I.T. firm and they turned up in shirts and ties I'd assume they were managers who knew sweet FA about the technical side :-D

    I agree with Geoff. I haven't worn a tie in a while now. Plus it takes less time in the morning if I don't have to put one of those on, haha.

    I wear a shirt and tie. I tuck my tie in or remove it if needed. If i'm laying cable, drilling and generally getting mucky - I will change into appropriate clothing!

    I think it looks more professional, but agree that it is sometimes not practicable.

    Majority of previous jobs have been logo'd polo shirt

    Re: Shirts n ties OR T-shirts

    I too go with a casual top, the ties just get in the way, dropping into PCs when I lean over them, getting hooked on stuff, the shirts get all mucky when I am laying cabling or drilling in the ceiling to mount a projector.

    Likewise I tend to wear combats or some other strong trousers (not jeans), because I have torn far too many decent pairs of trousers on sticky out metal things over the years. I just dont find shirt/tie/trousers all that much good in a practical role

    We wear shirts - no ties and smart trowsers and shoes but if we are doing something dirty then we come in jeans and a t-shirt. Might try and ask for logo'd polo shirts. what trowsers do you all wear with logo'd polo shirts?? Smart or jeans?

    Interesting mental picture..... Mind rubbers please

    Smart casual is the order of the day although as long as we aren't in really nasty grunge stuff (ripped jeans etc) then we are OK. Ties a def no no. Don't want the little monkies using me as a rope swing. Combats and the like are a must as then I have enough pockets and deep enough pockets to carry everything!

    Shirt, slacks and tie. Looks more professional and it shows up some of the scruffier teachers.

    On side note if your school provides a logo'd shirt aka a uniform then you allowed a tax reduction unless the school provide washing machine, powder etc for it to be clened.
