What do you guys wear to work? I usually go to work in jeans and T-shirt. And I grow a mustache and beard. But my cousin is suggesting me to do clean shave and wear formals to work everyday. He says that it'll make a good impression in the workplace, like I take work seriously.

I do get his point because I automatically give more respect to people who come to office in formals. But I don't feel comfortable working in formals. Moreover my workplace is very casual and my manager, TL, VP all wear jeans (even torn) and tee.

    You're hopefully there for your skills, not for looking good.

    I know, people tend to be superficial. That's a problem, people are idiots.

    Whatever I damn well please. Some days I'll go in dresses or skirts, others I'll wear jeans and t-shirts. Doesn't matter much, nobody takes my authority or department seriously anyways 😅

    One of my favourite parts of this profession is that you DON'T have to bow to social norms and uniforms. I feel most comfortable in a t-shirt and jeans therefore I'll work best in them. Sure it might be a negligible difference but it's cumulative.

    I wear a casual shirt and jeans, usually.

    That said, there's still some truth to the saying: Don't dress for the job you have but for the job you want to have.

    So if you're a dev and have no aspirations, t-shirt and jeans should be fine. If you want to climb the ladder somehow, formals and a clean shave would probably be a good idea.
