Before Casual Fridays, many professionals dressed up every day of the week, with men in suits and ties and women in skirts or dresses. One of the first instances of professionals dressing down happened around 1986 when a group of accountants employed at Motorola were having pizza at a restaurant after having played volleyball. They lamented that they had to dress up the next day. One of them, Michael Little, asked the others why they did so since it was never explicitly stated by their superiors. Three of them, including Little, came in the next day dressed in casual pants and shirts. A manager, Chuck Kmoch, made a comment "Couldn't find a clean dress shirt?" No disciplinary action was taken against the three, so the practice continued sporadically, until Fridays became the regular day of dressing down, unless the employees had a meeting with customers, vendors or professionals from other companies.
