The flat shoe revolution
Have you noticed a distinct change in societies standard of workwear?
Apparently a mere one in ten British workers now wear a suit to the office, a survey by Travelodge last year found.
Only half the UK's workplaces have a dress-code policy and in three quarters of those that do, the policy is for casual clothes. A suit, for example, tends to look so out of place in many offices these days that people get the impression the wearer must be off to a job interview or important meeting.
