Are dresses jackets and pants worn only for work tax deductible and if so how do I claim them?

Hopefully this helps: In Australia you can only claim clothing that is protective, compulsory or occupation specific. That means you can claim clothing that protects yourself or your clothing (e.g. steel capped boots) has a company logo in it or can be widely recognized as being worn by people of your occupation (such as a chefs black and white checked pants, and double breasted jacket). Just because you only wear certain clothing at work and not privately is not enough to claim it as technically it could be used for private use if you wish. Even if your employee enforces certain colours or to always appear corporate this is not enough to establish you as working at any particle place of employment so it can not be claimed as it is not an expense directly relating to your assessable income.
