Here's an elected official with way too much time on his hands:
PERU, Ind. (AP) — A northern Indiana county commissioner wants to ban county workers from wearing jeans in the Miami County Courthouse, saying casual clothing is inappropriate in a government building.
[. . .]
He says county employees should wear business attire because "the nature of the business that people conduct in this courthouse isn't a reason for celebration."
On the other hand, observance of a dress code can bring about the possibility of Casual Fridays on which less-than-formal attire is encouraged -- love my casual Fridays. And I like the sportcoat/jeans combination, which has been described as the "businbess mullet" -- business on top, party on the bottom.
