Deutsche Bank bans workers from dressing like ‘clubbers’

Deutsche
Bank is enforcing a stricter dress code next month after telling staff to stop
wearing ‘clubbing attire’.

The
bank currently allows staff to wear casual clothes but from September is
banning blue jeans, midriff tops, baggy clothing, T-shirts and trainers.

Mark
Ferron, chief operating officer of the global markets unit, said some staff are
"dressing down to extremes."

As
well as changing their clothes, employees must tuck shirts in trousers. A
spokesman for the bank said: "We are a global investment bank, not a
sixth-form college."

Other
City firms like Lehman Brothers and Credit Suisse First Boston have also
tightened up dress codes.
