Bela I’m sorry to hear about your office crush not noticing your waywt uniform challenge. However I am a little caught up on a detail you briefly mentioned. Your replacement doesn’t wear shoes in the office? Only socks? Is this common in your workplace?

I've been known to walk around in just socks, if I cycle in wearing clippy shoes I usually won't slip my Clarks Desert Boots on until I need to go to the Loo.

As such I'll maybe have a mooch over to the drinks fridge, a sit at the lunch table and wash up my cereal bowl, all in my socks until about 11 when nature calls.

Last week I went to get the office door when someone knocked, in my socks, opened it up and it was the sales manager, first thing he says is "where are your shoes?, Had to explain (leaving out the 2 hour gap ofc)

Not my manager tho so B-)

This is not an English thing. I've never been anywhere (apart from photo studios where you need to be careful to keep the floor clean) where you just go around in socks like a total animal. I'm all for going barefoot but SOCKS seems like the worst of all worlds.

It's all the inconvenience of being barefoot but with the added benefit of being able to get your socks dirty and/or wet.

It's actually really telling you're all mentioning "dirty socks" , implying you're not wearing black socks to the office

Which is the bigger crime

currently away for work, hotel room mirror

What about people who run in the office. Not like, people who go running and work in an office. People who run from one part of the office to another like it's an airport.

Tech lead types seem particularly inclined to do this.

Maybe the basic judgement is

Never put your face in your hands - > Senior management material

Run through the office - > Tech lead material

I work in a small office and my go-tos have been muji trousers + sneakers, mostly reacts. They're fun enough to make me feel like I'm experimenting by wearing different colored socks but not too fun that anyone will notice.

Edit: ok sorry!

everyone must remember the the three main pillars of personal style:

1) the environment

2) the algorithm

3) The ouroboros

Every so often you may feel a development in your personal style, one should not feel that such a shift of personal growth, progression or enlightenment. It will be due to one of these three pillars.

recently I have found myself in and out of uniqlo, looking for some new work trousers that are black, good looking, possibly cropped and office appropriate. me, a person who considers anything that does not pool on a shoe as passe garbage you should avoid. this is the environment.

For this I have been looking for something technical, maybe hiking inspired to wear to my desk job in which I enjoy due to its low mental engagement, but also despair at because i actively work to progress the inefficiencies of capitalism that crush me daily. Details i seek are articulated knees, sinchable waists, nylon fabrics and zipped pockets. This is the algorithm.

On this hunt i've been all over, but my search has culminated in browsing cos and sending bela a message on signal to say "hot 2019 take, cos, it bangs", this was prompted by being shown many black trousers and technical blazers, for which me and bela would have discussed at length back in 2014 while looking for the perfect casual blazer. this is the oroboros.

it would be easy for me to think i'm "maturing in my style" as I reach 24 years of age and marginally above entry level employment positions, but the reality of it all is these decisions are made for me. there is no creative expression here, just the three pillars guiding me through life.




here is what i've worn to work lately

business dinner with my bosses bosses boss and side boss

(you may notice this mirror from the picture above, this is not my house. this is Roomzzz, a new wave of hotels which are mini appartments designed for workers like myself, I stay here on business trips. this is what life is for a large section of society.

it's fucking grim

working class parents always say "damn I hope my kid doesn't work a truck like me and does something with their life, maybe a nice office job", mine did, but It's acceptable as they haven't faced the reality.

now if you come from a middle/ upper class family and you know what it's like? and you aspire for them to do this? you're fucking deranged sorry.)
