DC Examiner Dress Code: Only Due Attention To Ones Self, Please

dcexaminer.jpgWhat, you think working for a free paper is all loosey-goosey anything goes hippie bullshit? It's a business, dammit, you'll treat it as such! Here, for your perusal, are samples from the dress code at the DC Examiner (instututed, no doubt, after Vivienne Sosnowski showed up in torn denim mini-skit and studded collar) -- we note that it doesn't appear to have been written (or read) by a copy-editor.


From the "Appropriate" column:

* Dresses (length cannot be more than three inches above the knee). ["more than"?]

* Pants in business suitable fabrics. [Satin, leather, vinyl, etc.]

And the more fun "Inappropriate" column:

* Any type of denim (including jean dresses, denim shirts, denim pants, denim skirts, etc.).

* Any material resembling denim.

* Khaki or Docker- style pants. [Harsh, but fair -- we have a similar rule against tucking your t-shirt into your jeans]

* Stirrup pants and leggings. [That, along with their anti-sweatband and big sunglasses provision, explains their disappointing lack of hipster coverage]

* Camouflage clothing [Despite this, they still manage to poach Wash Times staffers]

* Clothing is not to be overly tight nor draw undue attention to ones self.
