I heard (2nd hand) that there are some corporations fixing to drop corporate Casual and start having strict dress codes again... Anyone run into this yet?

There is some credibility to this rumour. See the following article

Does this mean we'll have to "tie" the Ranch Moose?
If you're not in the public eye, what's the point... Programmers (developers, etc.) usually don't see the client (at least around here, anyway) and I don't see the point in putting a noose around the neck just to be Corporate P.C... :roll:
Oh well, Golden Rule.. those with the gold, rule..

I don't understand the fuss about wearing casual. I wore a tie through the whole boom. And the article is right: if you come to work looking ready, people think you are ready. Some people think you're too ready, but I guess those are the same ones who really hate ties in the first place.

That statement doesn't mean, when you dress nicely you must be smart. Being more/less intelligent and being able to think better/worse don't mean the same thing. I think all people have a harder time "thinking" at some point. That doesn't make them any less smart.
But I agree that your appearence can make a difference with how you work. And that can go both ways. Some people will choke in a tie. However, I perform better in my job when I am crisp, neat, clean, and dressed appropriatly.

Right now where I work we have a casual dress policy, meaning you dont have to wear a tie, no jeans, t-shirts or tennis shoes, but ties aren't required. For some odd reason I still wear a tie everyday, maybe because I'm a contractor
I've not had the chance to work anywhere where I could wear anything I wanted to but I'd really like the chance to find out how I think every day wearing shorts, a t-shirt and sandles.
