In mid-west America, everybody wears what they like, whether it's a dress, muumuu or suit. Jeans, t-shirts and sneakers are normal, even for going to a nice restaurant. Not so in Poland.


Oh yes, in certain situations, the Poles are unbelievably stiff. It's always struck me as a puzzle - many companies don't have dress codes, but then you'll find them dressing up for situations that really don't deserve it.

I remember being utterly mystified by the concept of 'dressing up' for random exams. Sure, an oral exam, it makes sense - but wearing a shirt and tie to go to a written exam at the university, really?

Yet oddly, for all the stiffness, teachers are only expected to wear nice clothes in certain situations. I can't say I understand it.

I live in the Midwest and certainly can't where what I want at work.

It is business casual during the week except for Friday.

Friday is jeans and a collard shirt. Saturday is jeans and a neat t shirt.
