Bill - we were talking about this at work the other day. Girls had to wear dresses to school until about 1970 and the workplace was ties and suits until a few years ago.  Friday casual has become the standard before we knew what hit us.  I have to say THANK Goodness.  However, there are those that push even that to the limits.  Kind of like us girls rolling our skirts up so we had mini skirts that our parents would never approve of.

I know what you mean. I didn't miss wearing a tie to work, but now some people show up looking like they just got down with a workout at the gym.

I heard of a few leaders wearing the respectful job and office they took. 

I loved that idea and have since decided to wear way above the slacker clothing of sandals, shorts, and tshirts the geek job demands.  I go for business casual button white shirt and slacks look because I work for a place I'm so fortunate to work for.

I've done that for so long that on the few times I do dress down, people do a double take on me.
