Yes, I know. "It's Friday, why aren't you casual?!"
Because I'm new and I love this job. I'd really rather not fuck it up 3 days in by wearing the wrong clothes. I generally try to play it safe and dress more formally until I know the office dress better than "business casual." In today's climate, that could mean anything from a golf polo and good jeans to pants and a button up to a suit with a good tee. I strike the middle ground and go with business slacks and a less casual tee.
