Okay now if you are at a truck stop or rest area, doing a 10 hour break or 34 hour reset and it's after 7pm then by all means go ahead and dress down, throw on your pj's or shorts wear your flip flops. Another exception to the rule is you roll up to a terminal and you are completely out of clothes but your sleep gear or shorts etc.

How about if its laundry day??? I was looking pretty shabby at a terminal this afternoon doing laundry. Do i get a pass?

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

BRF is the only place I would worry about.
