WSJ | Andy Jordan | If You Really Want to Defy Conformity, Dress Up on FridaysI'm ahead of the trend baby! My friends and I did Formal Fridays all through undergrad. Because if there's a place where "casual" is iron-clad law, it's a modern American campus.
San Francisco — The trappings of a nonconformist workplace were on display recently at the headquarters of a startup here named Pulse: There was the foosball table, the containers of free M&Ms, the bottle of whiskey on top of the fridge.
And the guys standing around in suits and ties.
It was Friday, after all, and to truly defy conformity at some tech outfits on that day of the week, one must not wear jeans or flip-flops.
