Just shoot only.

.. can still wear formally with tie and shorts ..
Yeah it's rather ridiculous.So many women now have been seen frequenting the office in tank tops and miniskirts.Many of those miniskirts are so high that when they sit down they look no different from shortpants.So why are corporations still shunning the idea of men wearing shorts?Even on fridays we arent allowed to wear any pants less than full length.Shorts of knee length or less,but not too short,would be great.I've seen lads on weekends in polo t and slim fit berms and it looks great,better than some of the attires the ladies come in the office in.If women can challenge the concept of modesty and force acceptance of their exposure upon society and even extend that to the workplace,surely men can challenge the conventions of office formal and push for shorts to be accepted as office wear?I hope some of the men who do have a voice in making such decisions would help us speak up to get our rights.I hope those men who firmly believe in wearing longs to work wouldnt oppose the rest who'd favor wearing shorts,just like those women in a proper formal havent complained against those in minis.
Being in shorts can help ventilate the legs and under regions,which is more healthy and reduces skin problems;for those of us who can't put on a skirt.By the way,I wonder which govt/private body actually decides what dresscodes should be?Or do companies just sync their minds together,hence resulting in a similar dresscode everywhere?
I think anyone who agrees that men should be allowed to wear shorts to work,at least on fridays,should "Like" this thread,to express their support.

Allowing guys to wear shorts to office is akin to opening a can of worms.
Firstly, how short can the short be? touching the knees? 5 inches up? 12" or higher up?
Secondly how baggy will you allow your short to get? If too baggy, then what if your female colleagues are caught video tapping "upshort" movie clips?
Thirdly, shorts show a lot of hairs, some more, some less. Do you think this will improve productivity in the office?
always the Light, .... always.
Shorts when half the office crew is wearing jackets and cardigans thanks to the operational skills of local building infra teams?
On an average most bosses do not look very good. If they allowed shorts and they came in shorts - the sniggering will never stop. Image shiny top, squat body, stubby legs with or without lots of leg hair.
They can go ahead and take "upshorts" photo if they arent afraid of being sued.Last I remembered it's illegal to take a woman "upskirt".I'm sure the same principle applies here.It's harder to take such shots for shorts than for skirts anyway.Furthermore,we shouldnt submit to those who seek to insult our modesty,the same way women refuse to put on more clothes to avoid sexual predators.
Why not improve productivity?With more comfort and room to move,I'm sure employees can put in greater efforts.It feels good to have restrictions removed so you can do your utmost for the company!
What has hair got to do with productivity?Just dont let your thoughts(and eyes) wander inappropriately

you can open your own company and get a office in raffles place. You can run around your office naked also no one will bother
because your lady boss dont like the short short one.
because not everyone has the same fashion sense?

shaddap and just shoot .... up close
It seem as if nations endorsed by the UN have no qualms about committing misandry,so long as the women are happy.I've seen women,mainly the younger ones,turn up at work in tank tops or t shirts and short casual skirt or miniskirt,some even with slippers,and act like nothing is out of place,and nobody tells them otherwise either.Whereas I see all men in long sleeved shirts,long pants and shoes;not a single man in shorts or t shirt or slippers.Even amongst the older staff,i've seen the women in sandals or slippers,but not one single man in slippers,all are wearing shoes.I dont know how the men can stand being the ones who are more strictly enforced upon,despite after it being the men themselves who gave up 2.5 years of their prime in hard service to the nation.It seems among private firms,the inequality is more stark than in government companies.
I have links to some blog articles in support of allowing men to wear appropriate shorts to the office,but this forum doesnt allow me to post links

Check with anyone maintaining building system. 9 out of 10 complaints that air con is too warm come from Singaporean. Too cold, People from temperate countries.
Walk into most server rooms, temperature is freezing cold! Look carefully, design is all wrong. They are cooling the room not the racks!
Most would require temp at 22 C. Actually 25 C with good air circulation is already comfortable. It is the humidity that needs to be controlled. Start with government buildings, slowly people will accept 25C. We don't switch on aircon at home if it is 25C.
