Out of Uniform

Because I seemed to surprise some of the folks at the Zend Conference by this, I thought I may as well mention my ground rules concerning my business attire. When I’m attending consulting sessions or conferences where I have meetings scheduled, I will always endeavor to look reasonably professional – at least to the degree that I can manage that. You won’t see me a wearing a suit all that often, but business casual I can usually handle.

But the second – and I mean the second – that I’m not required to be in my ‘analyst uniform,’ you’re very likely to find me in jeans, a t-shirt and my Sox hat. I’ve got nothing against business casual attire, for the most part, but it’s tough to beat jeans and t-shirt on the comfort scale. Whether that’s running into me at a conference, at an airport or around town here, I thought I’d mention it so the next folks I run into aren’t quite so surprised ;)
