The New York Times

Wall Street may still be a buttoned-down culture, but business casual is no longer confined to Fridays there. Even financial behemoths like American Express have loosened their proverbial tie. A visit on a recent Tuesday to its corporate headquarters at Brookfield Place in lower Manhattan found an eclectic range of personal styles, including bomber jackets, open-collar shirts, denim jeans, colorful socks and blazers. And, yes, there were some suits and ties as well.
