Because that's the "Operational" clothes of the office?Its funny it goes both ways. Having spent all my time up until Sept 2020 in operational dress I always looked at those in 3Bs as out of touch and whos jobs are simply justified by a constant drone of RFI with the header "regret short fuse". Working a staff job now, I feel I was justified in my conception of things, and if the Adm would just give me half an hour I would cull this place like the fruit and veg locker the day before storing ship.
But back to dress, why do people in an office setting need to be in dress pants and a dress shirt ? If its just daily routine and nothing formal is going on they why are they more formally dressed ? Again, formal occasions or press conferences I get it, makes sense to put up the buttons and bows, for daily routine I dont get it.
An aside, but when I joined the fleet in the 90's we officers only wore combats when we actually sailed, and this was during a time when we had to pay for our non-combat clothing.
Another aside, we won a pretty serious war wearing uniforms that was both ceremonial dress and combat dress.
