Dressing for success now means putting on a pair of khakis, according to almost half of Canadian office workers responding to a recent survey.

The 2001 Dockers Style Survey found that 49 per cent of respondents agreed with the statement, “I’m more productive at work when dressed in casual or business casual clothes.” Thirty per cent disagreed, while 19 per cent did not respond.

And 75 per cent of those surveyed agreed that business casual dress is here to stay.
