If you had to have the same dress code for work and home, what would your ideal dress code be? By dress code, I mean everyday attire.

The same dress code at work and at home? I would rather not have the same dress code at work and at home. When I'm at work I'd prefer to wear a suit. When I'm at home I prefer to wear sweatpants and a t-shirt. Sometimes, I just like to lounge around in my boxers at home. I don't imagine that I'd be able to do that at work.

I'm still looking for that board shorts and flip-flops set-up. Seriously. I need to find work that will allow a fairly reasonable income while dressed for a day at the beach. Better yet, a job that involves a day at the beach.

If I had to wear the same thing for leisure as well as work, the best choice for me would be navy blazer, button down oxford, khakis, loafers. Boring, but classic and serviceable.

I change when I get home, but only because I tend to lounge around in a way that wouldn't be very good for sportsjackets or knits and I want them to last. Of course, as soon as I get home i change in to my silk pajamas.

Write an intro book and make all your students buy it. Then market it and make a few of the big public schools buy it as well (you seem to be pretty good at marketing - Jay Allen). Should help you buy a few more pairs of jeans.

If I had to choose something, I would go with smoking jackets. Hmm, I think there's actually a guy out there who dresses in smoking jackets for work and while lounging around at home. If I only I could remember his name...

I pretty much dress the same at work as I do on weekends, as dressed up or down as I feel since I have a "creative" job that doesnt have any dress code and I can look 'relevant' dressed in a suit just as easily as if I wear jeans/tshirt.

I don't have a job yet, but when I do I want his. My ideal dress code is whatever I'm already wearing. Right now I'm a student so I'm allowed to wear whatever I want. If I didn't think it was ideal, I wouldn't wear it.

Would anyone wear a tie?

Edit: To include casual/social and work.
