I don't know anything about any case involving dress codes. I do
know however about my own solution. Consignment shopping and flea
markets. Funky clothes are the answer. "I ruin what I choose to ruin is
the answer". Although I have never been forced into a dress code, I
rarely wear jeans and a T, but have been known to wear complete band
uniforms (for $3.00 at a flea market), polyester dresses from the 70's
(way before the resergence of 70's chic that is prevelant now). I have
told kids that "if all the world's a stage then costuming is
appropriate". When asked, my colleagues would say "San D has a way of
pulling it off", which I hope means that I try not to look like Bozo the
clown, but wear things that flatter, but are curious (to this day I love
the Band uniform, it kinda looks like Dr. Pepper). I do have the
reputation of having more clothes than G*d (it's one of my vices), but
have not spent a lot of money, it's all it the thrill of the hunt. This
weekend I spent under $40, and got a leather jacket, a long flowered
raincoat, a polyester black jacket with red trim, and a black cowl neck
shirt, all from an advertised "60's" shop. Throw any of these pieces over
basic black, and your superintended will be eating crow. (OOOOOhhhh,
'60s' pantsuits are the rage now in these shops, just got a black one,
jacket and pants, a Diane Von Furstenberg, brand new....$2.50!!!)So, as I
always say "looking good is the best revenge"
