Not really. I have work clothes.

Nope. Sadly there is a dress code though. Gotta wear non-jeans and a collared shirt M-T, and Jeans and T-shirts are allowed Fridays, and days when I'm out in the field.

i'm in an office environment so i have to wear collared shirt, no jeans, and dress shoes. i have never had a pair of comfortable dress shoes though so i wear Pumas and have gotten away with it so far!

if i'm in a plant i need steel toes and can be more casual.

one of the few things i miss from my old job was being able to wear jeans and a hoody to work.

Yes; Sure, it's just a company polo; Like a black polo with my company's patch on it; I care enough to wash them regularly. I have four that I've had since I started with the company 2.5 years ago and they all look pretty much brand new.

Though the long sleeve ones are too short in the sleeve so I don't actually wear them unless the short sleeve ones are in the wash.

Edit: Pants are technically uniform as well but it's just black khakis so I wear my own. Though there's a standing offer to buy me a short stack of 5.11 Ripstops any time I want them.

Try Doc Martins. They're expensive, but they're comfy as hell.

Dr Martens VINTAGE 1461 BLACK QUILON - Doc Martens Boots and Shoes

You can usually find them for about 100 bucks. I've had this pair going on 6 years I think. I'm about due for a new set though.

That being said, we're business casual so no jeans, collard shirt, no tennis shoes although I've been known to sport a pair of black vanns around the office. As long as HR doesn't see you, you can generally get away with it, but I prefer the doc martins.

I love wearing a uniform to work, its saves wear and tare on my own clothes. I also have shoes exclusively for work.


on a side note I think its funny how we as a culture view the professionalize of others based on the fabric they have on...its all just fabric and leather to me.

Yup. Airline pilot uniform. It's reasonably comfortable. Looks like crap because I'm usually up at some ungodly hour of the morning getting ready. I try to care about it at least a little.

Yep, Have to
Not really, Would prefer going back to coveralls.
Looks like crap after a oilbased mud bath
I try, but it ends up looking like garbage in the end anyway.
Ah, The perks of the oilfield..

Uniform fetish or holster sniffer?[/QU

No uniform fetish, I am a Federal Law Enforcement Officer, so I doubt I am a holster sniffer, since I probably know more about the guns an officer carries than he does. I was simply asking if anyone wore or cared about the uniform they wear. I did not specify if they were only LEO.

Yes, theyre ACUs so the feel like PJs imo. I think they don't look really professional, but theyre easy to take care of. Just wash/dry and theyre ready. Velcro is annoying though.
