I work as an IT assistant for a medical supplies sales company, that's part of a small web of companies which includes different kinds of medical facilities. Our office is fairly female dominated, with the only males being myself, the IT manager, an apprentice in the accounts department and occasionally the boss, who is often away on business or is himself at one of the clinics treating patients.
The dress code here is office attire, which of course is a fairly broad and liberal rule for women. However, for men that typically means a dress shirt, some smart trousers or chinos and maybe a tie. Unless the boss is in and has been/is going to a meeting of some description, I am typically the only one here who wears a tie with my dress shirt. My manager did mention when I started here that I didn't have to wear a tie if I didn't want to, but as I quite like wearing one (shocking, I know) I have continued to do so. No further questioning or grievance has come about from my dress code, and I have even had colleagues compliment my choice of tie on a few occasions. However, I do wonder if I come across as stuffy or try-hard by being the sole tie-wearer in the workplace. Should that be a genuine concern?
