'smart business' dress code

The woman at the agency told me it was shirt and tie but do you need a suit jacket as well?

All I need is a big gun and a coupe that's crazy quick...

    I would wear a suit jacket personally. Better to be over-dressed than under-dressed IMO.

    Actual job. Would prefer to go without a jacket or something very very light depending on the weather. Also don't really see the point if you're going to be sitting about the office all day in your shirt and tie - could understand if it was a job where you're meeting lots of other people but it's not.

    Shirt and tie is fine, with a vest underneath if you are worried about sweating.

    You could also scout the office beforehand to get an idea of what your colleagues are wearing

    You could always take your jacket off, but you can't put one on if you don't bring one to begin with....

    ^ APB said, not many people sit in the office with one, hang it up (use a proper hanger so you dont leave kinks in the suit - always makes me laugh when you see people with a small raised bit of the suit on the upper back as they have been hanging it on a hook )

    But if you dont need to wear a suit, there in no point in taking a jacket.

    Valid points - i suppose my main gripe is that at the end of the day my suit jacket would have to get bundled in my bag when i'm at the gym.

    Integra - have thought about wearing vests before but anything remotely tight fitting makes me about twenty times hotter than normal. Would rather wear a shirt on its own and try and acclimatise.

    I have tried both, and sweat an equal amount in both circustances. The difference is that the sweat stays with the vest and doesnt go through to the shirt

    Might just (begrudgingly) wear the suit jacket tomorrow seeing as it's my first day and scope the place out. Won't be training tomorrow anyway till I see how the new routine works out.

    In my old work my seat was right beside the control for the air con, used to chill the place down to about 18 degrees then as soon as I left my seat someone would make it warmer.

    I imagine you will be fine in just a shirt and tie but why not just walkin carrying the jacket as if its a coat.. if everyone else has one on then put yours on - if not just hang it up or put it in your car :)

    Just throw it over one sholder with your index finger through the hook as you walk into a room.
