Islam has not fixed any specific dress. However, Islam has asked us not to wear the religious or national dress of other people. It should also be taken into consideration during job. Since the shirt and pant are the dress of other people so we should avoid it. However, kurta and pyjama are Islamic dress you may wear it during job as well as other times.
