WSJ: Formal Friday - The Barbarian Group

My colleague and I at LCU have required our students in the business administration program to wear “business dress” to class every Wednesday. We’ve been doing this for years. The goal is to better prepare students for life after college, helping them learn to live in the world of grownups.

Evidently, in a countermove to Casual Friday, more companies are instituting Formal Fridays to buck the business casual trend.

Everything old is new again.

UPDATE: I was reminded about this Seinfeld clip after reading Michelle’s comment below.
