Anyone commuting longer distances in formal or casual business attire?

If so, how do you keep the road smell off of your clothes?

Wear gear on the road, change into work clothes at the office. Keep a spare pair of shoes at the desk.

Safer, more comfortable, no wrinkles.

Don't ride in your work clothes. It'll guarantee rain, junebugs, or something. Even with a jacket or overpants, it's not worth it. Just cart your work clothes in. I'm lucky, we have a shower available at work...

+1. Keep a change of clothes at the office, or carry them with you. Keep shoes at your desk like Frick said. Much easier & safer to do.

+1 That and/or wear a one piece textile riding suit.

And still keep your pair of spare shoes in at the office.

+2 on the riding gear. Pants and jacket come of in 45 second. Keep a spare pair of black dress shoes under my desk so I dont have to wear the boots all day.

Only smell is my musk, no road smell.

I wear a dress shirt under a Joe Rocket jacket. Other than that, I carry work shoes and pants and change at the office. Not a big deal since I usually have a small backpack with me anyway.

I tried riding in dress pants and that didn't work out too well -- they ride up and offer no wind protection (nevermind the lack of fall protection). I heard stories about dress clothing coming apart at the seams from the wind. I'm doubtful, but I can see it happening.
