    I'm back at work from Monday, 9-5 at a multinational company, but they're fine with pretty much any clothing.

    But I've never been able to really grasp what a guy wears for 'casual' smart clothing.

    Polo's? Jeans? Trousers?

    I don't really know, the past 2 summers and 2 winter holidays I've just turned up in a shirt/trousers (sometimes a suit) just to make an impression at meetings and stuff, but now I'm pretty much a set member of the team lol.

    I'd go for a dress shirt with short sleeves and trousers. If it was cold I'd put on a suit jacket or a nice jumper.

    Why not just go on with wearing that and see what other people wear and then wear similar things?

    Ah, well copying them may not be so good then :p:

    But what do they wear? It may help to decide what is good for you. Do they ever wear jeans or anything similar? What else?

    I've seen jeans before, but mainly skirts and dresses with just a normal top.

    I need to go shopping tomorrow lol.

    Buy some trousers which are not black and not suit material/ cut. i.e. mayve a wool/ chino type trouser. Buy some nice sweaters and some smartish polo shirts. Should be fine. I think somethink along the lines of http://www.next.co.uk/shopping/men/casualwear/54/7 counts as smart casual for men!

    Try the Gap and Next - things like jeans or cords with classic shirts, and a nice jumper/cardigan would look nice.

    chinos and a shirt/polo/jumper?
    the office i used to work at was "smart casual" but most of the blokes still wore trousers/chinos and shirts, but they were like 40+. the young 'uns took it a bit far winding up in uni hoodies and sweat pants

    If the dress code is casual then I would read that as jeans being acceptable, smart-casual, trousers and a shirt/polo and smart a suit
