    Before Business Casual or Dress Down Friday


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     marjfz was a programmer at Morgan Guarantee Trust Company in 1985, when this picture was taken. 'I did not wear a suit every day, but did wear one frequently, especially if there was a meeting. Occasionally I'd wear dress pants, usually with a blouse and blazer. I also wore sneakers to commute, but changed into "work" shoes (heals, pumps) when I arrived at the office. When I look at the photo, it all seems so formal to me. It was as if we were wearing a uniform, which I guess in some ways we were.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    Another day at the office meant another day of button down shirts, blazers, suits, ties....


    This is 1985, the "Professional Support Group" at Morgan Guarantee Trust Company. I'm seated 2nd from right with the over-sized eye glasses.
