      My Dress code for my business and myself is geeky or ironic t-shirt and pair of jeans. Unless I'm going to a business meeting. In which it's a geeky t-shirt with the company logo on it. :)

       Dress code in Indianapolis - Shorts, t-shirt, running shoes. T-shirts with superhero icons or some funny saying is encouraged because it distracts your opponents during some of the foosball games during the day. ;)

      @ChrisRW: Good to know. I'm off to Melbourne on holiday in a few months so I can pack the right stuff now, but need to remove all those thongs I wear now :P

      My usual dress code is casual for work or very casual for out-of-work.

      Dress code here is casual Friday, everyday of the week. Jeans and khakhis are what I tend to wear. T-shirts and button up shirts are okay. But no tie. We're here to write code not present it to "adult" person. Everything above the waist must cover the shoulders and go at least half way to the elbow, below the waist it must at least get to the knees when sitting down. Other than that, no restrictions.

      Dress code: I was working as a Sys Admin for a foreign bank in Los Angeles, and the dress was shirt/ slacks and tie. I had not worn a tie to work in many many years :S . I had to go to GoodWill to buy a couple ties to wear for this job.

      My new position as a DevOps guy I get to wear a button down shirt and jeans [H]
