Streetwear Crowd: Where do you work? - Page 5

post #61 of 135
Grad student/GA. I work in the office of an underrepresented minority fellowship. It pays the bills and the tuition, so I'm happy. Dress is business casual, but I mix in some denim now and then. Let's just say JCrew has become my friend.

On a happier note, I just found a job after I graduate in May. I'll be working in public policy research at a well established nonprofit in Manhattan. Again, the dress is business casual, but I'm hoping to step up my game a little. Perhaps a jacket or tie occasionally, but after work I'm going to enjoy the ability to afford casual clothes without having to scrimp and save.

I work in corporate America but do it from home (telecommuting), so I can wear whatever I want.

i quit the advertising biz to become an art director at a boating association. the money isn't as good, but i now work less hours and have my sanity which is well worth the pay-cut! we were business casual (mostly j. crew/uniqlo/stinky rat by marc jacobs for me), but now we can wear pretty much wahtever, so i stick to my raw 501s and whatever hoodie or jacket i want...

This post is amazing.

I'm a student right now, my summer job last year was at a small lab and I could wear whatever the hell I wanted. This summer I'm working at a big pharma company, and technically it's business casual, but I'm crossing my fingers that since I'm a student they won't care what I'm wearing. Business casual is kinda the worst, because suits are cool, but khakis and untucked dress shirts are decidedly less... and to actually try to look really "good" in the confines of business casual would just be idiotic in a laboratory environment.

I work in commercial post-production.

I wear nice jeans and nice shoes and button-downs and get comments bout being "fancy."

sad but true. summer finds flip-flops and shorts as normal around here. I love advertising....

Went to school for graphic design. Was interning at a motorcycle mag, able to wear whatever I wanted. Now working for a design group doing presentations for city officials, it's business casual here. Usually wearing Uniqlo and B Son.

Not really my thing ... I always pack a pair of jeans with me just incase something's goin on after work.

it is easy to look good business casual, well fitted wool trousers, well fitted shirts, great shoes, an odd jacket here and there

fit is everything

I own an IT company. I get to wear whatever I want from shorts to a suit. It all depends on where I'm going and who I'm talking to that day.

Yeah, I know it can be done. I just feel like it's pointless in a lab environment, and at my age, I'd just worry about ruining my stuff. It's like, I could get a couple of nice MTM shirts that I'd want to wear outside of work, but I'd be afraid to wear them INSIDE of work. I'm not really sure what my lab environment will be like this summer, it was pretty clean last year, but this one might be different. Those are all things I'd get if I was doing a nice clean office job...

I work in advertising -- previously at creative agencies and currently at a magazine publisher where I manage their online ad projects.

Construction/management - family biz I got sucked into, I could theoretically wear whatever the hell I want to but I usually end up in cargo pants/shorts, a t-shirt and ugly-ass Red Wing boots (which are about ten times more comfortable than any of their fashion boots... that I wear the rest of the time). Unless I have to meet someone - then it's jeans and a button-up.

Barback/tender/security - not a real job, I don't wear anything I care about because it's just going to smell like smoke, liquor and (sometimes) skeeze.

I honestly don't wear some of my flashier things to class. Part of it has to do with me walking a lot to and from/class and not wanting to fuck things up in shittier weather, and part of it is wanting to fit in with the aesthetic of my campus. There's also the fact that when I'm waking up at 6 AM, I don't really want to spend the time to pick something nice out, I just grab a tee, some jeans and some sneakers, and go.
