Our New Businesswear

Our New Businesswear In The Post-Coronavirus America
Our New Businesswear In The Post-Coronavirus America

Yeah, we can all forget about suits and ties. We can say goodbye to sport coats or blazers with a button-down shirt and slacks. We’ll even need to leave our polo shirts and chinos in the closet. The days of the various businesswear dress codes are over.

Yes, the new businesswear for Coronavirus and beyond is and will be pajamas, a comfy robe, and slippers. There’s no point in anything, given that telecommuting / remote work is currently “required” for most people and that is not going to change even after the panic over this disease fades in favor of the media’s next trick.

This Is Our New “Reality”

Don’t expect things to go back to how they were before. This is our new normal. There may be a short term rush back to the office, but it won’t last for most of us. We’ll fairly quickly be heading back home to telecommute.

Companies in several verticals have now learned that they can have mostly remote workers and they’ll quickly realize that it is cheaper and more profitable to continue this.

And there’s even the perfect, recurring rationale for it. COVID-19 is functionally “just” a severe seasonal flu. So, next year’s flu season has just as much “need” for self-quarantining, social distancing, and sheltering in place to some extent. The seasonal flu does, after all, kill 12,000 – 61,000 Americans every year and hospitalizes another 140,000 – 810,000.

So yeah, better for the companies’ bottom line and easily rationalized as a responsible and compassionate course of action. Get used to your jammies, robe, and slippers, my friends. 😉

Irony Done Right

Irony Done Right
Yo, Hipters! This Is Irony Done Right

Yep. Despite what the Hipsters seem to believe, Irony as expressed in sartorial choices doesn’t have to be also based upon ugliness. 😉

Keep Your Feet Warm

Keep Your Feet Warm

Warming up or not, some over-the-knee socks are still a fine idea. After all, warm feet mean that they can skimp on some other clothing and still be comfortable. And, of course, doing so will warm up any and all around them as well, which is even better.

Fall’s Not All Sweaters

Fall’s Not All Sweaters. It’s Also High, Warm Socks

Despite popular opinion – though that opinion makes perfect sense – Fall’s not all sweaters. Sure, it’s sweater weather, but Fall’s also about one of my favorite bits of fashion – thigh-high, warm socks. They’re not just for Christmas, you know. 😉

Indeed, if she’s got the right socks, she might not need that much else, which can only be a good thing for us.
