Default Ties In The Workforce

Read an interesting article today about ties in the workplace and wonder if we will ever get to the point of not needing them. I mean sure, they look "professional" I suppose, whatever that means. However, more and more corporations are getting rid of the policy with some legal experts saying that it may be a form of discrimination.

Some are now saying that it may even be bad for your health.

Anyway, I am not harmed by wearing them but would love the option to ditch it, so any way to get it done is fine by me. lol

Article link for reference.

Female pilots can choose between ties AND those weird bow things. If anything, I feel discriminated against. Whereís my little bow thing?

Neck ties can lower blood flow to the brain...Jesus itís not a noose. How tight are some of yíall making these things? 😂

I'll keep wearing them until polos are an option. White button down shirts look weird without ties.

I would t mind having polos and slacks for a summer uniform to be honest and keep the shirt and ties with blazer for the winter.

Dress codes change with time. How many office workers do you see showing up to work with a three piece suit and fedora every day?

Personally I think a clean technical fabric polo that keeps the user cool and sweat free looks more professional than someone doing a walk around in 110 degree heat in a hat, blazer, long sleeve shirt and black pants and coming into the cockpit sweaty and smelly.

This seems a little dramatic. Times change and so do conceptions of what appropriate work attire is.

If thereís any loosening of dress code Iíd rather it be one that allows us (men) to sport a groomed/trimmed beard (one that allows an adequate O2 seal of course).

That would be fantastic but yet wonít happen due to the safety oriented nature of it. A tie doesnít do anything, hell most come off after the door is shut anyway.
