Normally IT staff stick to comfortable t-shirts, shorts and less than formal polo shirts. Management had a different view, team leader Mick explains "We found that when we wore shorts and dirty t-shirts that our network ran quite slow. So we enforced the actual Company dress rules and the improvements were immediately noticable."
The company attire rules of suit, tie, dress shoes.
"We are planning to experiment with tuxedos and even top hats. Who knows how fast we can make email go with elegant formal attire usually reserved for weddings"
