I'm in the "bit tacky" camp myself. Don't want daughter going to school everyday dressed like a candidate from the Apprentice. There are plenty of years to get used to dressing for the world of work, so why start at 16, especially as these children will be back in jeans etc for university. A sixth form uniform would be my strong preference. And i can foresee all sorts of disagreements in Next, Top Shop etc over what is "smart". I already find myself fighting to keep quiet about unsuitable (frankly "large handbag-style") bags being taken to school - aargh, and school shoes from unsuitable places like top shop that last one term before falling apart.

Well my DH earns way more than the national average wage and we're more than comfortable finance wise. He either wears jeans or when he does wear a suit its a Debenhams one.

Oddly enough I think his job is more than worth having. It pays for our nice house, cars, holidays, etc.
