This is brilliant. I do like a story about someone taking a stand for what they believe in. I have personally worked in offices where the concept of the dress code is virtually non-existent, but I don't mind that. What I wear has never affected my performance.
When I see people on my train, commuting to work in full office attire during 30 degree heat, it makes me want to die. It amazes me that companies still want non-client facing staff to wear smart office clothing in the year 2016.
I've been to meetings in the past in a suit where the client has been in shorts and trainers and felt well out of place. Embarrassed almost. This is just my personal opinion but I'm interested know what your thoughts on dress code are, do you have one?
