    it's an anachronism. something left over from the 90s. do companies still do it?

    A company I used to work for in Singapore had casual Fridays. Every other day folks were walking around in business suits, heh.

    we have them at my office... I stick on my armani indigo jeans, white air force 1's, amsterdam t shirt and my SI white tyvec jacket.


    Hell yeah I'm the koolest manager!Even had some whispers I'm a "casual"!! (yeah right - I barely know what a footbal looks like!)

    I actually love wearing my suits etc to the office but there's something special about fridays - when you run an IT department you get the stigma of being a hermit / cut off from society etc... I like it that I get to display my real self once a week

    Couldn't call it the city mate but I'm on the outskirts of London... guess that's how we get away with a more relaxed approach to fridays, though to be honest that culture's been introduced by a change in CEO.

    I dunno why but I am noticably more productive in casual attire - too often though and I know it'd slip!
