I wear a suit and tie to work half the time (when I'm in office A), the other half I wear jeans or even spend the day in my bike kit (when I'm in office B). Yes, I much prefer working in office B.

In my personal life I have dressed like a slob for the last twenty years, but my wife is pressuring me to shape up, lose weight, get a younger-looking haircut, etc. So I suppose I will be doing so.

I like suits, actually, just not to wear every day. I like the traditional two button single-vent suit, a slightly more tailored look than the Brook Brothers box cut. Oddly enough, I "inherited" a bunch of suits from an older friend who passed away. These are gorgeous classic suits fit for an old school New York businessman, which he was. He was a slim man and my goal is to lose enough weight to wear them - which is about 15 lb away.

Haven't had a haircut in over two years. I wear it in a pony tail when at work events. I tell them my backup plan is to become a rock star.

I don't have many pictures at work...but was just sent this one (because I won an award). I deleted the presenter and identifying info to protect the innocent. My typical work suit...seems like the styling "sells" well here.

Fascinating, right? People wearing that kind of stuff are presumably rebelling against their dads pleated dockers, stupid ties, big bellies and oversized jackets from the late 80s-early 90s. - edit - Oh, I forgot about the ridiculous tassel loafers that were part of the uniform, too

My 19 year old son (skater) is rebelling against that kind of stuff - his closet is full of 80s Tommy Hilfiger and Polo from thrift stores - really big pants. He often asks me if I put my daughters jeans on by mistake

I walk about 6-10 miles (wear a fitbit) many days when in DC between buildings for meetings. When it is 95F with 95% humidity, it is hard to stay cool in a wool suit. It is not bad in the spring and fall.

That was me, circa 1984, or a bomber's jacket and black levis.

I like fashion and sewing. I think now fashion can be strange a bit. I tried to sew some clothes fpr men but it looked not so good. I have Brother CS6000i Sewing Machine. It is a bit difficult device for me, because I am newbie in sewing. P.S. this sewing machine is good, I bought it after reading some reviews on http://bestsewingmachinesguide.com/

Where did you get those pants??? Share...

There is so much 70s goodness in that pic if you take a minute to look. I'd love a wall phone that the kids had to super stretch the cable on for a little privacy. That would be fun!

When I did field service I wore slacks and button down collared shirt... I don't remember a dress code it was just "known" if you were a computer tech business casual was expected, boy did I hate schlepping computers around in the summer heat.

Last twenty years I have been issued work uniforms, Black Dickies cargo pants and first a company logo polo but now a company T-shirt.

Still trying to convince my wife it is okay to wear a jacket with blue jeans (she is old school)

I get dirty for a living, and most of my after work activities are some sort of work in which I get dirty. I destroy clothes. I don't really worry all that much about what I look like on a regular basis. I probably look like an outright slob to most on the weekends, or if I have to hit the store on my way home, but it is what it is .
If Im going out to dinner, it is a button down shirt, and khaki's, or jeans. The other 99% of my life, I look , like I just crawled out from under a kenworth.

Does it work? I have an old orange German rotary phone - it will (did - don't have a line anymore) receive calls but won't dial. Cool looking, but completely useless.
