    If wearing a tie, then yes, convention says so.

    but if it's just a short sleeve shirt, or something similar, do you button it? IMO, it looks geeky.

    If I didn't have a tie then certainly not.

    If I have a tie and don't really care about being formal, I'll sneakily do up the tie just tight enough to mask the fact that the top button isn't done up enough. Not sure if that makes sense, but that's what I do!

    If I'm trying to look suave then I'll do it up.

    It's a very rare occasion that I wear a shirt though.

    Yes if I'm wearing a tie.

    No if not.

    Never wear half-sleeve shirts - I'd rather just wear a T-shirt then...

    Mine's usually undone and I was quite content.

    Then my sister told me that buttoning up shirts to the top makes shoulders look less broad (my shoulders are quite wide, wider than my hips) :| ever since then, hello top button.

    If I am wearing a tie then yes, always. Exceptions are when I am on the underground coming home in the baking heat...

    If I am not wearing a tie then no, never.

    Yes, but I always have done, not wanting to flout uniform rules and all that

    On men - I think long sleeved shirts look fine with buttons done up. I don't like short sleeved shirts tbh.

    Women - Undone.
