LORD Provost Sadie Docherty kept on her chain of office, but the rest of the staff at Glasgow City Council dressed down to help Glasgow reclaim its Curry Capital title.
And staff at the city council are doing their bit to ensure Glasgow takes the top spot again.
The Curry Capital award is presented to the UK town or city which boasts the best spicy food, and is announced on Monday October 29.
Entry requirements state that competing cities should do their bit for the Curry Tree Charitable Fund, a body which helps victims of disaster, the poor and hungry.
Staff at Glasgow City Council, including the Lord Provost, joined in by taking part in a sponsored dress-down day.
The Lord Provost said: "It's important that we show the organisers and judges that Glasgow is, without a doubt, in it to win it.
"We've had a great response and I'm more than happy to show my support and join the many members of staff and council officers taking part."
The Curry Capital Award, now in its 10th year, celebrates of the ethnic diversity of British cities and focuses not just on food but on the way in which the wider community interacts with local ethnic communities.
To take part, local residents from competing cities must first nominate their favourite restaurants. The top four from each city will then go head to head to try to unseat last year's winner, Bradford.
Glasgow curryhouses, such as the Ashoka, Balbirs, Creme de la Creme and Mr Singh's, have helped guide Glasgow to four previous wins in the competition – two more than any other competing city.
