Friday = Dress Up Day
By Kimberley on Jan 19, 2007
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....
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 !
