I'm a high school math teacher. I wore a tie and jacket everyday before the pandemic to teach my students. Continuing that tradition from home sans shoes/socks. I'm considering doing a casual Friday.

I still wear a shirt with a collar every day for WFH. I bought a number of long sleeve polos over the summer and consider them to be the ideal WFH shirt. Wearing flannels on occasion now that it's colder but still prefer OCBDs. Trousers are mainly chinos or corduroys but I will slum it with jeans maybe once a week (I would never wear jeans to the office, even on "casual Friday"...just a personal thing).

I have made a point of changing out of my work clothes when the day is done, into something I would normally wear at home wrestling with my toddler. It has helped to draw a mental distinction between work and home.

LL Bean shearling lined mocs have been my most worn footwear over the last 9 months without question.

My default when not “dressed” is chinos, BD shirt and a crew neck jumper in winter— basic preppyish casual. So that’s wot I’ve wearing most of time since March...

I sincerely hate to admit it, but most of the time I'm wearing just my terrycloth bathrobe, but I put either a full suit or equivalent number odd pieces on for videoconferences. I don't wear shoes with either, just a pair of slippers.

You forgot "butt naked".

Anyway, whenever I am on video I wear a sports coat at least.

sweatpants/ PJs and t-shirts + hoodie. I have a hard time justifying anything else. Simply makes no sense

my company has essentially decided that nobody will ever make a normal phone call anymore. Anytime people want to get in touch they use Teams video calls. So I have to be ready to be on camera at all times during the day. Not sure I’d dress down even if this wasn’t the case, but it’s sure a good excuse not to wear Pjs all day.

WFH is a good opportunity to wear all your menswear purchases that you don't normally wear. Those shirts that are hard to wear because the collar isn't quite right, the jacket that doesn't fit you perfectly, the pants that don't hold a crease well, the sweater with a hole in the elbow. I don't really want to wear down my nicer clothes at home, but I am happy to give the clothes I don't love as much some wear.

At this point I've basically regressed to jeans and t-shirts 7 days a week. I'm usually barefoot, too. My office is transitioning to using Teams for communication, so perhaps the prospect of video calls will compel me to at least shave on a regular basis.

This has probably been mentioned, but I need a hybrid option above. I wear a dress shirt and usually a blazer or sheer, cashmere sweater on top. Those are my go to's. That said, I wear nice jeans and either slippers or sneakers depending on mood/activity below!

Chinos and a long sleeved polo, or casual shirt plus Shetland jumper if it’s chilly. This regardless of what I’m doing - did it for a board meeting the other week and nobody had a tie on.

People who wear jacket & tie whilst WFH just look wrong. We had some new starter on a VC the other week and he was sitting in his kitchen wearing a waistcoat and tie and I immediately pegged him as a bellend.

Most days I wear a pair of heavy khaki twill trousers, a button-up shirt (mostly checks in winter), a crew neck Shetland sweater, argyle socks, & a pair of leather derby shoes.

I should clarify that I do not work.
