The IBM dress code

Our contracting work at IBM in Waltham was back when IBM had a particular dress code.  All the men had to dress like the agents in the Matrix (without sunglasses).  All the women also needed to wear a lady's business suit.

However since we were not employees we could wear whatever we liked.  The fun part of that is that we got to wear IBM badges which gave access in and out of the building, to the cafeteria, etc.  I got the biggest kick out of this because the IBM employees gave us the strangest looks.  They clearly could not figure out who we were and why we were permitted to dress in casual attire.
