Just my observance, but outside of banking, law, c-suite, etc.,a tie is very, very uncommon where I am; somewhat to my dismay. I go into an office every day and jeans and t-shirts with sneakers is the norm. Trousers and a dress shirt with nice shoes already makes me overdressed. I feel tech and their casual dress code has lead a race to the bottom.
It's unfortunate, I wouldn't mind wearing one if it didn't cause the constant barrage of questions and suspicious glances from those above me at work. There is an act of rebellion in it but also an ostracizing element.
The policy for attire allows for pretty much anything other than shorts and flip flops (though I've seen the IT department wearing that). They call it business casual but I think that term has become rather bastardized. I work in publications and will stick to trousers/chinos, dress shirts, AE, and similar, shoes. Dark jeans on Friday sometimes.What's your daily attire for working in a casual environment? When I go back to the office it's all casual. I work in tech as well. But this is the first time in my career that the dress code is casual. Previously I worked for a commercial real estate, so you had to be business casual

But as @DapperPhilly points out the tie, if it hasn't already, has been relegated to fancy dinners, weddings, and other such events only where I am--which is central Canada.
Maybe it’s time for a major closet cull?
find all of this quite amusing. I have been working in IT for 17 years (and at the moment I run a team in a mayor law firm in the City). I have never stopped wearing suits , tie or a sport coat. Btw I'm 41 so not an old codger. You know how the rest of the techies look at me? They all say this is the way he dresses and the only comments I ever get are positive. The guys in my team wear shirts, trousers , shoes ..There is a business casual dress code where I work but my team know that that is expected of them .I'm in Toronto. Worked on Bay street. Seen suits, ties, dress shoes. The whole nine yards for almost a decade.
I work in the I.T department so I am transitioning to jeans and boots now. It's fairly new to me, this whole casual workplace. Thanks for the reply.
