Hey Guys,

can you please tell me if you wear in SG (on the street, in the office, etc. ) business-shirts with a short or with long sleeve?

thanks, George

Long sleeves with shorts (with pleats) is the way to go in Singapore.

I thought I was on the wrong board. For a moment there I though I was on the angry board except the colour scheme was wrong. Guy asks a reasonable question and only gets crap in return. :shock:

Business dress is slacks & long sleeved shirt & tie. On the street most anything goes, short & tee's & Asian motorcycle boots or trainers are normal.

SMS what are
Asian motorcycle boots


:? I am not really a biker, but I know what biker boots are, do you mean how some of the locals ride around in flip flops?

In almost all cases, a long-sleeve shirt, slacks and leather shoes is the norm. Some companies will also require ties, but that's not very common (usually banking or insurance).

Under no circumstances should you wear a short sleeve button up "business" shirt.

Unless it's "casual friday".
