to be honest i wear the same clothes all the time. I dont really have shit clothes or really nice stuff. I could easily wear one thing during the day that i would at night. I obviously have smart shirts trousers etc for work and so on but i wouldnt wear that gear anywhere but work.

when i'm chillaxing i stick with plains and shorts, but ifi am doing anything other than what i consider chilling i makean effort.

eating pot noodles and playing pro evo dont require anything better than a vest and shorts, on the flipside i dont go anywear posh enough to warrant a shirt. i wear the same gear on nites out as i do when i am hanging with the man dem.

i always laugh when i see the 'wheeeey for the lads' style leds on nites out with a pair of shitty brown ex-school shoe moccasins, heavily stone-washed bootcut jeans and some kind of patterned white shirt. i bet they've made so much effort.

I used to wear the same stuff all the time, but I've stopped wearing the more expensive stuff to work now. I still wear expensive jeans, but not really the upper half.

In fact, recently, I've just been wearing Ralph polos everywhere.

I've also bought a couple of looser fitting jeans because being sat down for over 10 hours in skinnies can get uncomfortable!

That 'at least we're not starving children in Africa' line bothers me. I don't give a shit. The world isn't a utopian society.

I tend to mix and match smart and casual. I'm a director of a small business and we don't have a dress code.

Across the country on a thursday/friday/saturday night I think every bloke type bloke wears the same generic shoes, jeans and a shirt - usually white or some sort of chav style polo - pink ones in summer are really common in my town. In London people are probably more diverse but it never fails to surprise me how unoriginal people dress down here. Zombie nation. Just read D_O's post, basically I was describing those type of 'lads'.

I dress casual when going out, way more informal than work.

Do you wear your 'FUCK OFF' hoody to work as a good example to your employees mr Director?

No! I honestly don't know what possessed me to buy that. I wore it once out and a group of people stared in shock, quickly flogged it on ebay for £21.

Thread resurrect…

…anyone who wears casual yet not too relaxed to work. Best oxfords/long sleeves that pass as untucked with shorter cut? Looking at J-Crew but seem to be few alternatives?

Think I’ve worn a shirt almost everyday wfh (casual mind, not starched and pressed). Helps with the frame of mind.

Love MUJI’s oxfords personally, fit for me is bang on.

Mate of mine was on a formal video conference call and realised half way through that he was wearing an old Viz T-shirt with inappropriate wording/imagery.

The sort of thing that could probably get you sacked these days.
