Friday = Dress Up Day

Do you remember "Casual Days", "Jeans on Wednesdays", and other special deviations from the normal office "Dress Code"?   Well, as you may know, in most engineering groups, every day is casual day....

....except today.

Without going into a the history of how it came about, suffice it to say that several of our engineering managers in California decided that this Friday, as a bit of a goof, would be a dress UP day.   Neckties would be mandatory.

Our management team is all over the globe.   And even those who are considered "local" often work from home.   But true to Team Spirit, some of the remote managers sent in photographic proof that they indeed were sitting at home, wearing a tie.

(That's me sporting a lovely Sun Java necktie.)

And as it later transpired, some of our engineers and admins ALSO got into the act, and added neckties to their Friday attire.

Finally, to celebrate the humourous little event locally.... some of the gang will be meeting later at....   (go ahead, take a wild guess!)   the Tied House.   :-)

Yup!   The concept of "Fun @ Sun" is alive and well !

To help support the great idea (ties on Friday), I'd like to offer you and your co-workers a discount on ties from all of us here at Neckties.com. Please feel free to use the following coupon code: XT196U if you choose to purchase any ties from us. Of particular interest to you may be some of the rather funky ties we offer: http://www.neckties.com/Mens_Ties/Conversational_Ties/ I hope this helps keep the fun alive! -Todd

Good ideas - I would add that the ties don’t have to be boring and out of style. Take a look at www.wearcacti.com for example. They've taken the traditional men's necktie and made it cool again! I purchased a few myself and am thinking about getting some more. The prices are super reasonable and they offer free priority shipping.

Comments are closed for your "just a dream" entry so I'm sneaking mine in here. I've had a very similar dream many times - it was so funny to read yours! I generally interpret them to mean I'm doing too much housework, letting up on that usually helps ... :)
