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.


its interesting
ive often wondered why the suit and tie has become business professional and where it has come from

a lot of it just seems silly

i have to sit in meetings at work and sometimes they go a while. im talking a couple hours. sucks really
im in my work clothes but the general manager and maybe a few of the other brass are there with their suits and ties.
little by little though the jackets come off.
the ties get loosened or taken off
sometimes the sleeves get rolled up

if thats the end result what is the point of it you know?

interesting to think about

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.


thats interesting.

ive never dressed up for a holiday dinner

on my days off im usually in my minion jammies all day. including christmas dinner


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

It's stifling.


Then don't go, or leave. Easy.

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.


I was making an abstract point. My point was their is a dress code, the counter point was they aren't men.

Stay hung up on it if you want, I think dress codes help keep a level of understanding the conduct that is expected in an environment.

I'm 70 years old.

I've been through a lot of this "women appropriate dress" crap.

Sleeveless is not inappropriate.

I'm feeling major male Christian Fundamentalism in this current attitude.

I would guess it was men who originally made up the dress code.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


So men made a dress code where males have to cover more than women and you feel the man is putting women down?

What's next, you blame men for allowing skirts to see legs and objectify women?

This isn't a gender issue, it's a if you want a job working in the running of society there are presentation standards in the hollowed halls.

Its not the rule of society, it's the rules of a prestigious building, if you don't like it, don't go.

It's a family tradition.

Yes, most of the time we run around the house in shorts and tees or sweats, but there are times when it's good to remember how to act with proper decorum rather than skew toward person of Walmart.

IMO, there is a segment of society that has taken informality just too far and people of Walmart would be that segment.

Sleeveless is inappropriate - I know that for a fact as that is what the rules state for the dress code in the part of the building in question.

Males don't wear suits to cover up. Suits are like a uniform. It's like school uniforms - - - no one stands out above another. The purpose of ties is to cover the buttons on a shirt.

Women in business - - a "man's world" is always a gender issue.

No, it really isn't a gender issue. Misguided feminists make it a gender issue, but no one listens to that lunacy anymore.

Especially the tie! Why is a tie part of the male "must wear" dress code?


Excellent question! And if it's "must wear" for men, then why not for women -- especially those wearing similar button up blouses? Or at least a scarf?

I wore a tie once and I absolutely hated it! I dressed as a guy for Halloween. But I don't like anything around my throat anyway. Not even turtlenecks. So I completely feel for guys having to wear ties.

Sorry rules apply to both genders and you decide to perceive it as inequality.

People have to go by rules, men, women and people who don't identify as either.

Keep playing that man is keeping ya down card though because you can't wear a sleeveless shirt in one of the highest government buildings.
