We are very fortunate to have a flexible dress code here at Christian Brothers. However, many CB students have some modifications they wish to see in the future. I talked to a few Christian Brothers students about what specific changes they would like to see in order to improve the school dress code.
“I think we we have a pretty chill dress code, there’s nothing I’d really change except maybe jeans and CB sweats,” Sophie Sidley (‘21) says. Being permitted to wear jeans at school has been an extremely popular request for a long time. As much as students express the desire for denim, they still are not allowed.
Along with jeans, CB sweatpants have also become a widely popular request amongst the students.
“If we were allowed to wear jeans what would the dress code be? What would we not be allowed to wear,” Maggie Melarkey (‘21) asks. “Sweats would be nice if we can’t wear jeans or leggings.”
Opening the dress code to sweatpants instead of jeans or leggings might also reduce the number of students out of dress code.
“I feel like people wouldn’t wear leggings as much if we could wear CB sweats,” Anthony Murphy (‘21) claims. Comfort is the main aspect on the minds of the hardworking students of Christian Brothers, so the expansion of the dress code gives them more options for comfort and in terms of better focus and cooperation.
In addition to pants, students also stress an interest in wearing certain shoes like Crocs or sandals. Although the senior modified dress code does occasionally accommodate these shoes, students would like to open this privilege to the whole school year-round.
Many students also showed an interest in an expansion in the Christian Brothers store. New and improved CB shirt and sweatshirt designs would also decrease the number of students out of dress code because of the new variety. Bella Barbosa (‘21) and Emma Frink (‘21) suggested new fitted long sleeve shirts and quarter zips in a vintage style Christian Brothers logo to be added to the CB Store.
Regardless if any changes are made to the dress code, an expansion of Christian Brothers merchandise opens the door for more students representing CB and closes the door for fewer students out of dress code. Even though CB students show interest in modifying the dress code, the student body as a whole does understand the expectations for their attire .
