Just tried my (crazy expensive) suits on after 5 months of quarantine and they barely fit anymore. The struggle is real. Managing partners, please allow jeans for 2-3 months when firms reopen.

Agree. I had to go to court a few weeks ago and looked like a sausage in my suit.

Honestly nothing has humbled me more in the last couple months than putting on a pair of jeans.

This. I can guarantee you will get more work out of me when I’m comfortable than if I’m constantly distracted and readjusting. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Who wears a suit to the office????

funny

I’m so glad I’m not the only one. I’m going into the office for the first time since March tomorrow, and while we are allowed to wear jeans, even those are feeling quite snug. I have started to put jeans on randomly to bring me back to reality.

I’ve been periodically putting real clothes on to make sure they still fit. By some miracle I am still relatively ok and do not yet need to buy new clothes.

How is everyone dealing with starting work at new companies remotely? I personally hate perpetual remote work and honestly, starting with a new team of ppl you don’t know is absolutely awful for me.
