I'm inclined to agree with Frank.
You know that old saying "Don't judge a book by its cover?"
Well, almost everyone DOES judge by what they see on the outside.
I think we do need to present a more professional image.
Some of the ladies may also have to tone down their attire as well.
Clothes that are too revealing are not appropriate either.
What exactly is acceptable and what is not?
Well, for the men it's pretty simple.
They should wear a button-down shirt with a collar and preferably a tie as well. Jeans are not acceptable.
For the women I'd say professional looking skirts or dresses that go down to at least the knee are acceptable.
And blouses or shirts should not show too much skin.
And of course, no sandals or flip-flops. Shorts are NEVER acceptable.
Do you think members of the board should try to dress especially well?
Yes I do. We are representatives of the company and we need to be a good example.
I'd say the men should try to wear a full business suit when possible.
Can we still have "Casual Fridays?"
Sure, Gary... Let's keep that tradition.
But "casual" can't be too casual.
I'd say jeans are OK on Fridays, but no T-shirts.
Polo shirts or short-sleeved sports shirts are OK.
So I guess we are going to need to send out a memo with these new guidelines.
Some people aren't going to be very happy about this.
Actually, I kind of enjoy getting dressed up! It's fun!
And I guess I'll get used to the new rules.
I do look pretty good in a suit.
