    Dress Code

    Our Planning and ED people share a department and an office floor in City Hall. The ED people tend to dress more formally, usually dress shirt and ties but rarely suits. The Planners tend to be more casual. One guy is a bit of a clothes hound, another usually wears a dress shirt and tie. The rest of us: Lots of polo shirts, dressier button-up shirts with no ties (like me today), khakis are not really a problem (this is Northern California, home turf of Gap).

    At Planning Commission and City Council, though, dress pants, dress shirt, tie, and dark jackets. Even that is slipping, a bit.

    Unfortunately, my liking for sweets and Mexican food makes the necktie my enemy-since I am too proud to buy larger shirts with bigger collars .

    I work in a super-small office where no one really seems to care what you wear, although the attire really depends upon what's on the agenda for the day - meetings with clients, government officials, etc.

    I know of some offices (not necessarily planning/engineering) that require that the women wear only skirts (no pants suits or slacks), pantyhose and closed toe shoes. The day that I am REQUIRED to do that is the day that I stop working forever.

    I agree, Planderella. I don't mind the occasional skirt, but to work in an environment where it is skirts or nothing? Even most Catholic Schools will let their girls wear pants now.

    Topless? How do I apply?

    Sorry, I just woke up from my nap (I don't work in the real world)and had to take that out of context.
