Business casual

Business casual is an ambiguously defined Western dress code, considered casual wear but with smart components of a proper lounge suit from traditional informal wear, adopted for white-collar workplaces. This interpretation including dress shirt and trousers, but worn with an odd-coloured blazer or a sports coat instead. Acceptance of business casual in the United States was preceded by Casual Fridays which originated in California in the 1990s, in turn inspired by the Hawaiian 1960s casual custom of Aloha Friday; the designation of particular clothing pieces as "business casual" may be contentious. There is no agreed definition of "business casual". One definition of business casual states that it includes khaki pants and skirts, as well as short-sleeved polo shirts and long-sleeved shirts, but excludes jeans, tight or short skirts, T-shirts, sweatshirts. Another source, an American university careers service, states that business casual consists of neutral colors more towards the dark shades of black, navy, but can include white and off white, reminds that the clothing should be pressed and have clean, crisp seams.

The "Dress for Success" advice from the University of Toronto sums up business casual as "a classic, clean cut, put together look where a full suit is not required," which means slacks, khakis, or skirts. The Canadian university ends with the warning that "it is not clothing you would wear to a club or for athletic purposes.... Don’t let the word casual mislead you. You still need to look professional."Another author wrote in the Financial Times that "Ordinarily business casual for guys seems clear. It is a pair of chinos, a blazer and a good shirt, no tie."A BBC article suggested that a "safe global standard" consists of "a button down shirt," "jackets or blazers, khaki or gray slacks, leather shoes." It warned, that great variation exists between countries and regions within countries. A U. S. menswear retailer advises men to wear a collared shirt, navy blazer, brown shoes, while making sure to look "clean and well-groomed."A contributor to Forbes asked her Facebook friends to define business casual, found a more casual apparent consensus not forcibly including a jacket: "For men: trousers/khakis and a shirt with a collar.

For women: trousers/knee-length skirt and a blouse or shirt with a collar. No jeans. No athletic wear." A response to, "I disagree. No khakis." She states that "there’s a lack of consensus in what defines a business casual wardrobe. All most people know is they don’t want to see too much of a colleague’s body, including feet."

Ezra Warner (inventor)

Ezra J. Warner of Waterbury, Connecticut was an American inventor, who patented his design of a can opener in 1858. Crudely shaped bayonet and sickle combo, his design was accepted by the U. S. military during the period of the American Civil War. Can openers were needed because early cans were robust containers, which weighed more than food and required ingenuity to open, using whatever tools available; the instruction on those cans read "Cut round the top near the outer edge with a chisel and hammer." The bayonet part of Ezra Warner's can opener was pressed into the can, a metal guard kept it from penetrating too far into the can. The other part was the sickle, forced into the can and sawed around the edge. However, Warner's can opener was not a tool for domestic use. Grocers opened the cans; the first widespread domestic can opener was patented by William Lyman. The American Experience
