Girl that started at my office a few months ago just told me she was told at her interview that jeans weren’t allowed, which is a load of bollox since I and a couple others there wear jeans every day, but anyway it got me thinking. While it seems to me that it’s still fairly uncommon for offices to allow jeans, it’s been years since I worked in an office that had a really strict dress code. So how strict is it where you work? And what’s the strictest you’ve ever had to follow? My answers would be:
Not at all (apart from the poor new girl, who of course feels that she can’t wear jeans like all the rest of us since she was specifically told not to); and
Hitachi - I spent two weeks there as a temp in 1997. “Casual Friday” meant you could wear khakis; jeans and runners were never allowed.
