a mode of gown in the spectral range of black tie, business formal, and company everyday. Company tropical is, in a sense, the next thing down from business casual with regards to formality. Business tropical is fairly open-ended, but permits short pants, interesting habits, unusual ties, and stuff like that. A lot of control is expected. Tennis shoes are acceptable, but should always be niche shoes or match the ensemble. Specialty athletic shoes tend to be acceptable. Hats tend to be appropriate plus encouraged. This form of dress is very befitting tropical-like climates. Distinct from company forest since it is more formal, and tropical printing t-shirts are noticed as passe and out of touch.
