I'm wearing a "golf" shirt (I don't golf), cargo-pocket
shorts and running shoes (with socks).
I would be wearing sandals (and no socks) except that
I don't want to carry my sandals in my backpack, and
I haven't gotten around to buying a pair for leaving
at the office. I'm 49+, but they tell me I look younger.
In winter, the pants get long, and are usually jeans
or very casual slacks (denim, duck, twill, whatever),
and on very cold days the shirts might have long sleeves
and a turtleneck or mock turtleneck.
When we are expecting important visitors, we are sometimes
asked to bump it up half a notch, and to not wear logo
shirts with the logo of our visitors' main competitor(s).
Other than that.... :-)
If we had a casual Friday, I'd have to come in my jammies.
