I do agree with lawyerdad. For my situation at the university, please bear in mind; I teach art /design students mostly, you're not going to
shock this crowd. I can get away with stuff most here would probably find unusable, because i lecture to a room full of tattoos, peircings, spiked hair, and dirty jeans.
Some of the other posters might have pointers here as well. I weare the suits, ties, and psquares even though most of my colleagues don't. As far as waiting for tenure -only if there is some kind of unwritten tradition you might jeopardize.
