Apparently the last straw was when I showed up in a pair of stained shorts and a t shirt developing small holes that had a picture of fishing gear with the caption "The Way To a Fisherman's Heart Is Through His Fly." The next day we had a dress code that amounted to business casual.
It's always gratifying when you know you've had an influence on the bureaucracy.

This thread reminds me - I need to buy some short sleeve pullover shirts, often referred to as "golf shirts" since I'm down to three that are barely suitable for wear in public. They are clearly not new. The problem is that I insist on a shirt pocket and for some reason those are sometimes hard to find at a reasonable price.

Shortly before I retired in 2009, Academy had a sale on my favorite men's polo shirts at $1.44 or $2.88 each. I scored at that sale, and I probably have 20-30 polo shirts in a rainbow of colors, some of which I can't imagine most guys ever wearing. Some have stripes and some are in solid colors. None have pockets, though.
