I went to my first non-cyber work event in well over a year a couple of weeks ago. I've gotten very lazy about what I'm wearing when only round the house... I've probably worn a pair of jeans more often in the last year than the previous decade, cumulatively.... It was a joy, though, I found to be back in a collar and tie. I do tend to dress like that socially anyhow, but with barely leaving the house this last year... (A lot of it is also the hours I've been working to do it all online meant I neglected appearance; I'd have been full on had I not been so busy, I know.)
It's going to be interesting. Part of me dreads the world going uber casual. The big law firms in London have all been doing it for the last few years, pre-pandemic, and personally I hate the idea of paying out big money to deal with a guy wandering around in jeans like he's Mark Zuckerberg. On the bright side *if* the suit is as 'dead' as office wear as many fashion commentators are desperately proclaiming it to be, maybe we'll see a revival of interest in tailoring because people no longer see it as "what the man makes me wear" (I saw a lot of that commuting on the tube. It was always obvious - it positively screamed from every pore of the guys in suits who were proudly wearing trainers on the commute.)
Still, to each their own... as long as they don't try to impose a dresscode that forces me out of my comfort zone at work...
One of my favourite casual looks is a leather jacket replacing the suit jacket, Howard Hughes style. I just wish it wasn't so damn hot here in London right now; I've barely been able to wear a jacket of any sort yet and it's now late September. I had hoped I'd feel the cold more as I got older, but sadly I'm still suffering with the heat!
I dressed the same during the home office as I did before in the office and as I do now when live events come up. Casual
TBH, I tend to the view that the Covid thing isn't going to make the difference we keep being told it will, and people will fairly quickly just do what they were already doing.
@Edward, I also often times combine dress pants, dress shoes and formal shirt with a leather jacket these days. Interesting also to hear your thoughts about big law, these ladies and gentlemen will certainly have some influence on formal attire.
Pit stop with JL
Wet, Windy, and Chilly. Just another day in the PNW. Perfect day to get some shrivel action going on those scrotum grains.
Extremely happy with my customized Idaho from Greg.
Ordered a new jacked a while ago so still waiting for another masterpiece
Really like this one!
My first “nice” jacket and still one of the most comfortable- Belstaff
It’s made it’s TFL rounds, but found a home. Probably. Very cool jacket.
Incredibly comfortable, also quite flexible it seems temperature range wise. Deerskin is much warmer to the touch than horse or steer - or is it the finishing? But seams breathable, too, even with the substantial lining. Really look forward to the next weeks and trying this out in different conditions!
Ah now I see, thanks. Looks like I have an older print/issue of the book which doesn't feature the Brent. Now I need to get this one too
Work from home yesterday, spent some time with the Aero Type III. Gonna take a long time to break in…but it’s a good time along the way.
Daniel Boone on its way to eBay.
Cool jacket but that grain is where its at.
I love it man. If it ft me better I’d be putting a pin in the jacket search as I’m pretty well covered. Alas, it’s definitely a size too large.
Heading out to dinner in a bit. My wife wants to jump on the bike and ride into the hills for food. I ain’t complaining.
'What Jacket Are You Wearing Today?'
Not quite yet jacket (85 degrees) weather here so I broke out the Schott black suede vest from their … wait for it …”Kenny Rogers Leather” branded collection. Know when to hold em….
