I guess it depends on the office. That got me thinking about the factors that limit the range of contemporary business casual clothes. A few ideas:I, too, like the look of a sport coat with fatigue pants, but I am not sure I’d wear that to the office.
- Social pressures (company policy, fear of judgment from more senior leaders or peers, desire to conform)
- Lack of imagination or interest (e.g. those lawyers with their ice cream)
- The work environment itself (customer facing or not, desk work or some physical work, etc)
- What you need to project (Creative? In charge? Invisible?)
