Rebel Without A Suit: The Not-So-Casual Road to Casual Friday by Richard Press and Joseph Cosgriff is a 6,000 word expos on the origins and misinterpretations of Casual Friday, the trend that has taken over the global business world, forcing men to have two wardrobes rather than simply a few suits and ties. Together, Press and Cosgriff tell a fascinating tale from the origins in Edwardian England and post-war Hawaii to the present, with the ramifications both in and out of the office, the costs associated, and how it was really big business (Levi Strauss/Dockers and Gap) who led the march to casual business wear rather than young rebels who thought they were sticking it to the man by not wearing suits. Well-informed and witty, Rebel Without A Suit is a must-read for anyone who works in an office, which is quite a lot of us.
