Australian department store chain Myer has seen a 15 percent growth in sales of chinos and "double digit" increases in the sales of men's casual work shirts, the Daily Telegraph reported.

"It's not one outfit for every occasion. Quite a lot of workers try to mirror the fashion style of the clients they are going to see," she added.
