Default Business casual

Would a polo shirt and khakis be business casual, or do I have to wear a dress shirt/tie?

what's the event you're asking this for?

edit: generally you can get away with either, as long as the clothes are pressed and look good. Just use your judgement based on what type of event it is, to decide which option to go with.

Default Re: Business casual

I'll go with khakis or slacks and an oxford if an important person is showing up.
Jacket and no tie.

Just see what other people are wearing to get an idea.

Slacks, button up shirt, and loafer/dress shoes is business casual.

Sometimes I just go suit no tie.

When in doubt it's best to over dress. You could sit in the car and see how a few cohorts are dressed. If they don't have coats/ties you can always leave yours in the car.

First impressions are lasting.

Leave the polo shirt for the golf course.

Khakis are okay if they are neatly pressed. I wouldn't wear a pair of every day Dockers that's been thru the washing machine a hundred times.

Same with the button down oxford. Neatly pressed, long sleeved.

Nothing too baggy or tight. You want to look neat.

Nice jacket, leather belt and leather shoes.

And always carry a pen and handkerchief.

This is a great idea. You can pretty much count on no tie, though.

Of course here in Florida "dress casual" means wearing your dress jorts.

Done this. First time I did, I wondered why the heck I didn't always go this route. As men, we can capitalize on this option much easier than ladyfolk can. Just bring a blazer or sport coat and a tie, then scout, then decide which of those things you need, if either at all.

That being said, a polo shirt makes this route obsolete unless you plan to wear a tie around a polo or choose to wear a blazer or sport coat over a polo, which I would not advise at a business casual event.

In this post I make a joke about business casual.

I was about to just post the joke directly but I feel that it would be proper to at least give you the option of seeing it.

If you like it, let me know.

My idea of Business Casual.
