    It means suit and tie in my place on the very rare occasions there has been a need to dress in that manner.

    Business dress means suit.

    Because they used the word "smart" I would interpret that as meaning "don't just put on a crappy cheap suit to comply with the rules; wearing something nice and look good".

    Well polished smart shoes is my only addition, well that and clean shaven or smartly trimmed beard.

    I agree with the other poster, you can't go wrong with a decent suit.

    But, one caveat, it does depend a little on what the day to day norms are in a particular company. For a trendy interior design company, it would have a more fashionable edge, for a young software house it may be slacks and shirt and tie. But for finance, law, and most professions this means a nice suit.

    These vague HR terms are quite annoying.

    Would it not be easier just to say. "Smart Suit, Shirt, Tie and Shoes are expected."

    Looks like off to dept store for me.

    Wear a suit on day 1 and gauge what others are wearing then.

    Better than being the only melon NOT wearing a suit.

    Maybe :)

    Better to be the only melon wearing a suit than the only melon who ain't. :D

    It's not really that vague though; it has a pretty well defined meaning.

    Is this for the interview, or are you past that stage?

    Its past that stage Eoin. Its for the first day.

    Ah right - well if you didn't get a good idea from the interview process, then you could ring to clarify - but "Smart Business Dress" is pretty clear IMO.
