Dress Code

At our quarterly meeting at work, we were reminded of the dress code and today our supervisor came to each of our desks to say that everyone would need to be adhered to and he would be sending out an email.   I did indicate that my shoes were orthopedic.  I know because they are not butt-ugly and because of the rubber looking soles they could be mistaken for athletic shoes, although none are lace-ups. all are pull-on.  He said it was not an issue, just had to make everyone aware and saw him move on to the next person to personally let them know.  I get where they are coming from; had seen some questionable fashion choices in the hallway with it getting hotter outside.

I get where they are coming from; had seen some questionable fashion choices in the hallway with it getting hotter outside, but have only ever heard of the company sending home anyone once and that was at Halloween for a very skimpy outfit.   That reminds me of when my boss at one of the banks that I worked after there was a disruption after they passed out a “Dress for Success” book to the Credit Analyst at work.  He said the guys appreciated the gesture, but the women were offended.  Surprisingly, he said it was not directed towards the women, but one male analyst that was smart and could have potential to move up, but projected being a nerdy college student and needed to dress with more authority.  I think it did benefit him as he started looking little less Urkel after that.   After that, my boss said the only time he ever had to send anyone home was a young gal that showed up for work in a loosely crocheted top and no bra or undergarment underneath.

After that, my boss said the only time he ever had to send anyone home was a young endowed gal that showed up for work in a very loosely crocheted top and no bra or undergarment underneath.   He discussed with another male manager and the fella asked if they really had to send her home as he looked longingly at her.  My old boss told him yes, obviously, she was a distraction.  He ended up being the one to have to deliver the news to her.

Back to present day.  My boss, who we all love and has a good sense of humor, send along with the standard blurb of the email pictures that would be considered appropriate.  The above are two of the pics from the email that he must have scavenged from 1970’s catalogs.  I told him I pegged him as a “textured vest” sort of man.  Others pondered that the polyester jumpsuit would suit his physique.  He said no, he thought he would be more like the dandy chap at the end of the email.

  1. I’m grateful to read that this is being addressed @ your job! Altho I don’t work anymore, there are times that I go into a business – especially if it’s “casual Friday” – and I’m offended beyond belief — and yeahhh I have said something!
