Dress Codes

I got a new dress code at work today

We have eliminated casual Fridays. Now I don't get to wear jeans on Fridays. Talk about lame. But I noticed a few other interesting portions.

Not Acceptable
T-Shirts, Sweatshirts, Sleeveless Shirts.

I am of the opinion that sleeveless shirts should not be acceptable anywhere where a dress code is appropriate to instate. They are just not neccessary unless you are a construction worker or a personal trainer.

Not Permitted At Any Time for Men or Women
Any tight fitting clothing -including shirts, skirts, casual slacks, spandex, knit pants, leggings

Once again I don't think spandex should be acceptable anywhere where a dress code is in effect. Furthermore I don't think there is ever an appropriate time for spandex. Let's just make a universal dress code outlawing the use of spandex by any human being.

Not Permitted At Any Time for Men or Women
See-Through fabrics

Wouldn't wearing a see-through fabric negate the entire point and process of getting dressed?

Not Permitted At Any Time for Men or Women
Hairsyles that are not professional in nature to include hair longer than collar length for men.

I wonder if my shower then throw on stocking cap hairstyle is considered professional. I hope so because otherwise I'll just have to shave my head. I can't deal with hairstyles. It's just not my style.

I hate dress codes... I have one at my job but I cheat sometimes like today.. I am wearing dark jeans but wear my coat all day because it is "cold" in here so that way I can get away with wearing whatever I want .. and they feel bad because I am freezing!

i mean, REALLY, how specific must they be with professional adults?
