Under Team Harmony...

One of my jobs was a two person security team at a bank. 5 days / week suit and tie was the dress code. We both were slim, and needed to wear suspenders (a belt would not work well -- so much for the security "belt and suspenders" :). No-one else in the division did, so it became a team identity. After the team expanded a little bit, the new team members even adopted the suspenders :).

    I once worked on a mainframe project that had a tight deadline and required a lot of late-night work. This was before 'casual day' became popular and we all wore suits and ties. Whenever we would stay late, we would take off our ties and wear them as headbands, turning up the local Oldies station on the radio and doing the Limbo with a piece of masking tape between cubicles. We called ourselves COBOL Ninja Warriors -- upper management learned to avoid our area after 5pm.

    This reminds me of bow-tie Wednesday. We had a group that wore bow-ties on Wednesday. I am not sure how or why it got started and I never learned to tie one properly (used a clip-on). It was fun though.

    Cheers - L~R
