    Yes, this is a worldwide phenomenon, not limited to the US. But then, some people say that the rules of dressing are silly and artificial. That's one way to look at it.

    I'm wearing a business suit in temperatures of 30 degrees Celsius. So is everyone else here. Isn't it artificial and silly, sweating under our suits, and polished boots?

    Several companies around the world, especially in new-age industries like IT, BT, Electronics, etc. are switching to a casual style of dressing. Of course this doesn't apply to the consulting firms, but in almost all product companies the norm is to wear jeans and t-shirts to office.

    And many argue that this is a good thing. So, there are two sides to the coin. :)
