hello everyone! This is minori, director of calm160.
The majority of calm160 users are business people in their 30s and 40s. In particular, I get the impression that there are many people in the sales and service industries. So, this time I will explain about "office casual" which you may not know about. Actually, 160 Men's is good at office casual style. Please take a look.
What is office casual?
It is said that remote work, a new way of working during the coronavirus pandemic, has significantly reduced the number of people wearing suits. Recently, there has been a return to working in the office, but I think people's clothing has become a little less casual. Even in workplaces where suits used to be a must, people are often told, ``At my company, office casual is fine.'' However, if you are suddenly asked to wear office casual instead of business clothes, which have always been limited to suits, what should you wear? ? That's confusing, isn't it?
I'm sorry to add to your anxiety, but the term "office casual" actually doesn't have a clear definition.
People often say, ``It's not as formal as a suit, but it's still acceptable for a business setting,'' but to be honest, I don't really know what it looks like.
But I can tell you this. Office casual is ``a means to proceed smoothly at work'' . The purpose of office casual clothes This means `` a sense of cleanliness that does not cause discomfort to the other person'' and ``a feeling of trust and persuasiveness.'' So, rather than a fashion that fully expresses the individual, I think it's a fashion that focuses on how the other person is perceived.
Isn't a suit enough?
“Isn’t it okay to wear a suit?”
No, to be honest, there is nothing wrong with wearing a top-and-bottom suit style that is considered "office casual."
・Suit jackets and dress shirts have a narrow range of motion, making it difficult to move. ・If you wear them frequently, the suit tends to get dirty and damaged. ・You feel like you're the only one standing out when everyone else is wearing a casual style...
Therefore, it doesn't hurt to know about office casual style.
160 Reasons why office casual is recommended for men
In the case of 160 men's clothing, many people may have had the experience of looking younger than their actual age. The cause is It all depends on how you choose and combine your clothes, as well as their patterns and sizes, but office casual style is coordinated with the other person in mind , so naturally there are many items with ``pretty'' and ``mature'' patterns and materials. Become. Also, most of them are plain, so most of them are a sure-fire classic combination.
Although it is not as strong as a suit, the casual office style can create a neat impression, and it is the exact opposite of the image of childishness and childishness, so it is a style that 160 Men's is good at coordinating.
In addition, office casual style has many advantages in terms of comfort, as the range of motion of the body is not as narrow as in suit style.
Office casual items that are convenient to have
I would like to introduce specifically what kind of items can be conveniently used for office casual style.
・Set-up jacket and pants
It is convenient to have one set (=setup) of a jacket and slacks in the same color and fabric. Wearing them as a set means you don't have to think about coordinating them, and you can completely change the atmosphere by just leaving the jacket and pants as they are and changing the top you wear inside or shoes, which is recommended for busy men in their 160s. This is the reason why I want to do it.

A white T-shirt is not only easy to match with anything, but also a symbol of cleanliness. Isn't a T-shirt too casual? You may think so, but these days there are shiny, slightly dressy T-shirts that are suitable for office casual wear, and if you put a jacket on top, you won't have to worry about the casual look. (However, a collared shirt is recommended for serious business meetings!)
Of course, dirt and pilling will make it look less clean, so please be careful when cleaning it!
