Dear Ms. Corporate Manners,
I wear cowboy boots most of the time when I am not working, and I have a pair of really nice dress boots that I would like to wear. I wasn’t sure if I am allowed to wear them to work. Would I be allowed? If not, what kind of boots would be appropriate to wear to the office?
It’s not a question of what’s allowed but what’s appropriate. What do your customers expect? Conservative, mid-rise, non-Western dress boots, sure. But hand-tooled, ostrich-hide, pointy-toed Tony Lamas? Save them for your after-hours life, pardner.
Ms. Corporate Manners
