This guy is our office hero

Being forced to work in a suit in hot weather can feel like you’re being melted by formal wear.

Joey Barge, a 20-year-old call centre worker from Buckinghamshire, England, found this out when he tried to turn up for work in shorts.

But he had the perfect response – he returned later that day wearing a stunning (and frankly cool-looking) pink dress.

 

 

‘If women can wear skirts/dresses at work can I wear smart shorts like so?’ he said on Twitter.

‘Answer: nope. Just been sent home from work,’ he said later.

Barge then posted tweets of how he would return to work.

It turns out Barge’s little protest at least succeeded in some ways to allow him to be more comfortable in the office.

His company will now allow men to wear three quarter length trousers in black, beige or navy.

He also retweeted a short LinkedIn post about how dress codes affect everyone, especially trans people.

You have to admit, he did look pretty amazing in that dress.
