Exercise 6

Read the article about Business Culture.

Dress codes are rapidly changing in the world of business. In companies across the United States, the business suit and tie are disappearing from the workplace, and casual office wear – slacks and a sport jacket for men, pants or a skirt and a jacket for women – is becoming more and more popular. “Dress down Friday” (a day when employees are permitted to wear casual clothes) is spreading to the other weekdays, and this trend will probably continue.

In a poll of 3,700 executives by Management Recruiters International of Cleveland, Ohio, 40 per cent believed that the business suit is becoming a thing of the past. Many executives believe that business people will not wear suits at all ten years from now, not even to job interviews.

  • code – cистема правил
  • rapidly – быстро
  • disappear – исчезать
  • casual – обычный
  • employee – работник
  • permit – разрешать
  • spread – распространять
  • executive – должностное лицо
  • believe – верить
  • poll – социологический опрос


Exercise 7

Write T (true) or F (false) according to the article.

  1. This article is about what to wear for an interview.
  2. Business people dress informally more often now.
  3. Nowadays people wear business suits on “dress down Fridays”.
  4. Many of the executives in the poll think that business people will dress more casually in the future.

Exercise 8

Read the text.

In country A business people dress quite formally. The business suit is common, but for men, wearing non–matching jacket or trousers is also a possibility.

In country B the dark business suit is obligatory for men. Some companies allow women to wear trouser suits.

In country C the business suit is almost as necessary as in country B, but with more variation in colours. Some companies require employees to wear formal clothes from Monday to Thursday, and allow less formal ones on what they call casual Fridaysor dress–down Fridays.In some places, many banks and shops require people dealing with customers to wear uniforms so that they all dress the same.

In country D people dress more casuallyat work than in the other countries. For men, suits and ties are less common than elsewhere. This is smart casual.

Which of these sentences are true for your country?

  1. Employees are allowed to wear what they like.

Exercise 11

Read the article and answer the question which follow.

Simon Harris, a senior executive in the London branch of the computer firm Samex Systems, regularly arrives at work wearing jeans, trainers, and a colourful pullover. His secretary, Martine, is often dressed in a bright yellow T–shirt and designer jeans. Samex Systems recently decided to allow its 1,500 employees to leave their pin–stripe suits and smart frocks in the wardrobe and to wear casual clothes at work.

Samex’s Human Resaurces Director, Norma Leaman is responsible for introducing the new policy. “I travel quite a lot to the USA. Many of the companies I visit there no longer have strict dress codes. In fact, many employees wear practically what they like.”

Norma decides to introduce casual dress as an experiment in the company. “We started off by allowing people to dress in a more relaxed way once a week. Then we extended it to two days a week. Now most employees can wear more relaxed dress when they like.”

There are of course, still some rules. Dirty and untidy clothes are not allowed. Male employees are told not to wear earrings at work. And for some people there is still a dress code. Sales staff do not go out on visits wearing jeans. Overseas visitors – especially if they come from the Far East – are not welcomed by executives in Bermuda shorts and beach shirts.

The fashion for casual dress at work started on the weast coast of the United States. American hitech companies found that younger employees were happier with a less formal style. “In the information technology industry the devision between office and home is not very important,” says consultant Luis Rodriguez. “Many people work at home wearing the clothes they feel most relaxed in. When they are in the office, they just don’t see the need to dress very formally.“ Rodriguez has carried out a survey on dress among 700 US companies. “We found that about 70% of companies allowed employees to wear casual clothes on some occasions.” There are a number of explanations for the more relaxed modern style, according to Rodriguez. “Companies with a higher proportion of women employees tend to be more relaxed about dress codes.”

It is also significant that there are many more younger people in positions of power. “You now find senior managers in their early thirties or even younger. They just don’t want to dress like their grandfather did.”

Even the most traditional companies have been caught up in the new fashion. Take MFD Securities, a City of London investment firm. For many years executives had to wear white shirts, dark suits, and ties. Now they are allowed to wear more casual jackets and trousers. Jeans, however, are not allowed. “Our customers are getting younger and younger,” says MFD spokesperson Jan Martin. “Often they are happier dealing with someone of their own age and background. And that means dressing in a more formal way.”

However, not all companies are following the trend. A junior executive in a Paris bank recently arrived at work to find four brand new white shirts on his desk. This was his company’s way of saying that blue and yellow striped shirts were not acceptable.


Exercise 12

Answer these questions from the article.

  1. How have Samex changed their dress policy recently?
  2. How was the change introduced?
  3. What rules still exist in Samex?
  4. What were the results of the Rodriguez survey?
  5. Do all City companies have a strict dress code?
  6. What experience did a French excutive recently have?


Exercise 13

Complete these sentences with something from your won experience or company.

  1. You are allowed to wear _______________
  2. ___________ are banned.
  3. ______________________________ are acceptable, but _________________________ are unacceptable.
  4. Some people think they should be allowed to wear _______________________________


Exercise 14

Read and translate. Do you agree? Give your own idea.

The Clothes We Wear

Without realizing it, the clothes we choose to wear tell other people a lot about us. We often judge people by clothes they are wearing. For example, people dressed in expensive clothes are thought to be wealthy. Our shoes, accessories and jewelry, all tend to create an impression of our social class and personality. Similarly, our choice of clothes also depends on our age and who we are influenced by. On the other hand, we do not always get the chance to choose our clothes. If we work as a nurse, police officer or fire–fighter we have to wear a standard uniform. Lastly, our ideas of beauty are revealed by our style of dress. Dressing in a particular outfit might be a way of saying, “This is what I think is nice, and I believe it makes me look more attractive.” In conclusion, more than being just a way to keep warm, clothes reveal a lot about a person’s life, character and status.
