Provided uniform. Collared shirt, burgundy, with navy blue pants.
I work in a plant, in the IT dept... But everyone here wears the same uniform, even the president.

Silicon Valley office here, so we're all casual except for the guys and gals who have to meet customers in person. I've worn a Hawaiian shirt to work a couple of times, but we can get away with shorts and flip flops if we wanted to. Sometimes I shave every 3 days or so.

The first day I showed up I was business casual/formal. Then my boss came over introduced himself in shorts, sandals and a ripped t-shirt.
Yea you were quite annoyed with me when i told you should wear something nice

I quit Friday but it was casual all week long. That was one of the best things about working there.

it's supposed to be business casual unless we are meeting clients...but you can pretty much where whatever the hell you want without anyone saying shit.

A lab jacket and tie.

Of course me being me I hate them and only wear them when my boss's boss comes around so they don't give him crap. He's a pretty good guy and I don't need him getting grief because of me.

Why do I get away with it? Because I'm that good, and humble too :D

I suppose I should, legally, be wearing this. Boots are the only safety gear I wear though, and safety glasses when cutting above my head simply cause I don't like getting sawdust in my eyes.
