    Bruce: I thought this was business casual in Berkeley.

    John: No, this is just "casual." With "business casual" you wear pants.

    I follow this article's suggestions:

    Business Attire

    Since I live in the south we normally relax attire in the summer due to heat and humidity. However, I always wear starched shirts and starched chinos even when at my most business casual. In fact I prefer this attire but change to a colored (print, etc...) shirt and no jacket if the occasion calls for it (otherwise it's starched white). I use my ties to bring in color. I always bring some type of jacket in case I have to meet with upper management or other officials. I own a black leather blazer and it usually makes the trip as a "just in case". While not as formal as a suit/sports coat it nonetheless fits most occasions. My thoughts have always been I can take off a coat and remove a tie but it would be hard to put them on if you didn't have them.

    With the exception of my suits all my clothes are 100% cotton and starch up nicely.

    I always wear slip on shoes (usually kiltie tassels). I don't care if folks think lace up shoes are classier I don't care.

    Hey Kevin! After that description I don't think that you're going to be able to carry that "resident redneck" tag anymore.

    I say you make a real statement and go with the hemp suit:


    Anyway, I hope you win!
