When I'm at the store, I very rarely see TMs or ETLs wearing khakis (though our SD usually does). At your store, are many TMs still wearing khaki trousers?
Business casual means that you aren't wearing a blazer/suit jacket, but that you can pass (barely) as business formal by putting one on. It's ridiculous the kind of clothing people wear and try to pass off as "business casual". Women are worse than men (skirts too short, heels too high and showing heel and toe, neckline too low, yoga pants or pants too tight) but men are bad too (shirts so tight that muscle definition is clearly seen, tight pants, athletic shoes). Sometimes I wonder if the younger generation even knows what business casual is, rather than knowing and ignoring, because they haven't seen an entire staff in a professional setting clothed appropriately.This might be location-specific. My store is near Seattle. Wearing jeans to work is considered very cool, the khaki trousers not so much. In Seattle-area office professional jobs, most jobs only require "business casual" or "casual" clothing rather than more formal "business" dress. I get the sense that many other areas of the US aren't so "laid back".
