Always have a spare outfit or suit at work.

Absolutely no dress code where I work. I try to be smart-casual, unless I know I'm going out to see a client, or they're coming in to see me, then I smarten up a bit. But I always keep a jacket at work, just in case.

I just have to hope they don't come in unannounced in the winter when I'm sat there in my sexy stripy fingerless gloves and a scarf because my office is super-cold :D

I'm not really a t-shirt kind of guy (except when scruffing it at home) anyways so I would at the very least wear a shirt and jeans.
I very rarely wear a suit (that reminds me I should look into getting a new one)
I always go see clients rather than them coming to me to save on the hassles :)

every time i've met a client i've just remained in jeans and a t shirt, obviously i ALWAYS look pretty nifty, but it makes it a lot less forced imo. people are more likely to open up and talk if they see if you in an approachable way.

obviously it does differ, just the people i've worked with i've never seen the point.

edit: (for exisitng clients, i mean)

ive just bought a new suit for when i first meet clients. nice grey one from the mighty primark
lol, hey big spender.

In some situations I have to look smart, i.e. in a suit, especially if I'm going to their offices. But most in mine I can get away with just looking tidy

i would rather not wear a suit than buy one for £35................please return it if you ain't wear it yet. £100-£150 should get you a decent suit.

I'm looking at getting some new semi-smart clothes & a new suit, but £300 or so on clothes will be a big spend for me, better be worth it ;)

Smart Casual.

Jeans, nice trainers, comfortable footwear, clean fresh... cardigans, knitwear, quality shirts.

Look clean, smart, creative for meeting clients.

No suits - i don't add up numbers in an office or attend crisis meetings all day.

I'm a designer.




*Although i did wear combat shorts and vestsa bit at my old place...

I knew a designer while working in New Zealand (and for PricewaterhouseCoopers I will add) who wore surfing board shorts and a Hawaiian shirt :lol:

that's more like it...............remember that a designer is not a scammer, banker, insurance broker or an undertaker!:clap:
