well you get it
thanks shamrock

im not even saying i have a problem with it. i dont
i just want to understand why shoulder or no jacket is a big deal...

dress pants with a collar shirt or a short sleeve polo is a far cry from what you would wear on the beach

an open toed heel is and a dress that shows shoulder is a far cry from sweats that say princess on the ass

i just dont view no jacket or a sleeveless dress as casual or unprofessional but like i said im a jeans and t shirt guy

in 1837 according to the article men having to wear hats was tossed out..
its 2017..why not toss out the must wear a jacket thing or must have sleeves on a dress?

cool if they dont but i would like to understand the reasoning behind it

Sure!
Just not in a place that doesn't allow it.
Otherwise, go for it, I say.

My kids delayed me and ketsuko already told you you were talking Bull... haha

I think there are dress codes that can be debatable. If it impacts on the health one way or the other I have no problem with debating its validity, but when it concerns decorum, I say we have to deal with it. It's not like we are forced to do it. One can always chose to not go and do something else.

For example, I don't go nudist because it doesn't appeal to me, but I don't ask that everybody else on Earth keep clothed at all times.

Formality and decorum.

Dress formal and act formal.

My family still has dress dinners for the big holiday meals, and I will tell you that there is a very different tone and manner when you are formally dressed as opposed to when you are not, even if you have the table set in much the same way.

I asked if men could wear sleeveless shirts, this was TinySickTears response

are men women?
men have to wear a jacket and tie

i said that already

women and men dont dress the same


I don't see anything wrong with the dress code


"Cool argument."

Tiny still said nothing about women being able to do what they want while men can't.

Go to a Nascar race and watch the 50 year old woman rooting for Dale Jr every lap by waving her arm in the air with a sleeveless shirt... then think about that disgusting flabby arm fat being out in the open and on display in the halls of the White House or any other professional building.



Sexist much?

For certain industries a dress code helps the customer determine who works for the place.

Like car sales...

The guy wearing the clearance rack Murano collared shirt with matching tie and khakis in the middle of summer on the "pad" is probably not buying... he's selling... so run from that guy.

Run.

In a business dealing with high profile clients... it's a way to establish a sense of professionalism.

As for the differences between what the guys wear and what the women wear... that's one of those grey areas depending on what generation you're from...

Just recently a guy got sent home for wearing shorts and came back wearing a dress in protest. Man sent home for shorts... comes back in dress

This kind of behavior is much more crybaby than protest in my eyes...

Once again... it depends on the business... and in the end its about professionalism.

Some lady with lots of arm fat wouldn't add much to the overall aesthetic of a professional workplace by wearing a sleeveless dress, nor would a guy in a t-shirt when everyone else is wearing a suit.

Get over it.

I have eyes and they see things that can't be unseen.

I live in the real world... where do you reside?

Generally speaking "business attire" is going to mean "conservative." That typically means not showing off your rack, wearing closed-toed shoes, not wearing thin blouses without a jacket or sweater, etc.

Why? No idea. Just as a suit and tie is considered the standard business attire, women have the same general standard business attire. There's no hard and fast rule.

I would guess it was men who originally made up the dress code.

I would guess it's what men have decided is appropriate.

Now that we have, basically, male Fundamentalists running things - - - women need to cover up. Burka next?

I've been at dinners where they expected you to "dress for dinner".

It's stifling.

The rules haven't changed.
A dress code for certain jobs or functions is completely normal.
