It’s calling it the Pajamas Swimsuit, and it actually does appear to be a go well with jacket — full with the lower and the buttons on each the sleeves and the entrance.
This shirt, and others prefer it that goal to make you look extra presentable in video calls, are uniquely suited (ha!) for 2020 when a whole lot of conferences have been taking place remotely. Whereas the requirements for what counts as acceptable workwear have become more relaxed over the past decade or so, I feel we’ve all proven as much as Zoom calls in one thing we’d by no means put on on the workplace. (I simply did my final assembly in a T-shirt I’ve had since highschool.)

Whereas I prefer to suppose that clothes requirements don’t have an effect on me, and the thought of fits being the be all, finish all of workplace apparel is somewhat classist and loads sexist, it nonetheless feels a bit bizarre to decorate for work the identical approach I’d costume to go on a jog.
That’s to not say I’m about to drop round $50 (4,990 yen) on the Pajamas Swimsuit, although. Not that it doesn’t look nice, as a result of I feel it does, however you continue to have to put on a T-shirt underneath it, and the obtainable colours simply don’t work with my present wardrobe. Oh, and it additionally looks like Aoki solely ships to Japan, which is sensible because it’s a large retailer within the nation however doesn’t appear to have a lot of a presence outdoors of it.
Fortunately, there’s an choice for People: cardigans, that are primarily what the Pajamas Swimsuit is. When you additionally need to attend your subsequent Zoom assembly in consolation and magnificence, you may in all probability discover what you want in your native thrift store.
