By my math, we’ve been working from home for ten thousand years (check the math). But now, with more and more people receiving vaccines, it looks like we are finally turning the corner on something that feels like a halfway normal world. Where once there was darkness, there is light. Where there was a virus, there is now a vaccine. And where there used to be sweatpants, there will soon be stylish cuts. Pack your bags boys, we’re heading back to the office.
For my part, I am REQUIRED for this because we need separate spaces for work and for home. When your room also serves as an office (and your cafeteria and your daycare), you are sort of never unplugged and you always feel stressed. Personally, it not only gives me a reason to fly from my West Coast home to New York City to have a late drink with my favorite Esquire employees and harass them about fashion in movies like La Dolce Vida (hi Nick!) but it also gives me the opportunity to seriously refresh my wardrobe with a much needed refresh.
The perfect resource for this is the J.Crew Factory Sale. The Crew offers basics (denim! Chukkas! Button up shirts!) That feel both timeless and fresh at prices that will leave enough cash to comfortably buy a bar bill later. (You remember ?)
