Apparently there is a thing called a Zoom shirt

We want to share a take on WFH from prominent menswear enthusiast and author, Simon Crompton. His blog Permanent Style is a great source of information on classic menswear.

From Simon Crompton of Permanent Style:

“Apparently there is a thing called a Zoom shirt."

It sits on the back of your chair at home, and just before you start a meeting with your boss or colleague, you put on the shirt to look professional. You know, over a T-shirt and sweatpants.

There has been much hand-wringing in recent weeks over what Covid-19 will mean for menswear, and for tailoring in particular. With increased working from home - the thinking goes - why would anyone wear anything other than the aforementioned T-shirt and sweatpants ever again?

We think this is liable to exaggeration. It is a mainstream news story, not a classic menswear one. The majority of the population already dress as if they don’t care what they look like. Working from home more will make them dress a little bit worse: but that’s not much of a loss. 

We think those that care about their clothes will continue to care. The clothes will change, but they will still want to buy quality, to look put-together, and to enjoy what they’re wearing.”

We know you care. So do we.
