INTRIGUING FINDINGS FROM RECENT POLLS

1. A large number of people selected New York as the rock capital of the world. Many so doing are themselves from New York.

2. No one selected "place of birth" as the criterion for determining a musician's geographical affiliation, despite its status as the simplest, albeit least logical, choice.

3. An amusingly high number of you listed which gambling games you like the most, then noted that you do not gamble.

4, Only one person (take a bow, steve_hicken, for your failure to be cowed by the political correctness police) identified the correct nation as featuring the highest percentage of duelers: Ireland.

5. An astonishing 55 of you believe, against all reason, that a tucked-in shirt with no tie and an open collar is an acceptable way for an adult male to dress.

6. None of you will admit to working in retail, manufacturing or traveling sales.

7. Mung beans are the majority choice as most amusing vegetable.

8. A surprisingly large number of you would be quite amenable to the notion of a global takeover by Communists.

9. Martian Manhunter was the least commonly identified as a founding member of the Justice League.

10. Moldova is the most commonly forgotten member of the Coalition of the Willing.

11. More of you would vote for Jerry Orbach, a dead man, for President over Fred Dalton Thompson, a living one.

12. No one picked Saturday as the worst day of the week. Sometimes y'all justify my love.

I am, on occasion, quite dapper. I frequently wear a white shirt with slacks, tucked in and without a tie. I find that it is a reasonable middle ground that lets upper management know that I can maintain a professional appearance, while at the same time, sending a signal to my technicians that I am grounded and haven't forgotten where I come from. It presents an image that everyone finds presentable and approachable.

Also, I hate wearing a tie when it's hot out here.

Also, also, I roll up my sleeves, which I find perfectly acceptable to do with or without a tie, where a tie and a short sleeve shirt is simply reprehensible.

Not that, I suspect, you give a crap about my opinion on male business fashion.

I haven't worn a tie in fifteen years. They cut off blood circulation to the brain and I got enough problems already, thank you very much.

My two uniforms are A) black t-shirt, jeans, Chuck Taylor's, a hoody or black leather jacket when it's 'cold', or B) Hawaiian shirts*, shorts [tan or black depending on the shirt], Reef flip-flops.

*Real ones from Hawaii. =)

Thank you for the summary! You haven't been posting the findings of recent polls, so it's nice to see a summary of interesting results in one place.

I personally feel that buttoning the top button is unacceptable when not wearing a tie. Therefore, when dressing business casual, tucked shirt with no tie and open collar is an excellent way to go.
