Legend has it that people who work from home fall into two teams.
There’s Team 1, which is called Team Ligo (shower/bath). As the name suggests, WFH people on this team still shower and get dressed before logging in to work. It sounds a little extra, but there are plenty of benefits behind it.
Then, there’s Team 2 or Team No-Ligo. They probably have the most number of people on their team. After all, it’s way too convenient to just roll off the bed and perch on your workstation, pj’s and crusted drool and all.
And now, a Japanese company’s come up with a pajama set that might appeal to both.
What Do You Get When You Cross a Formal Shirt With a Pajama Set?
If you’ve been working from home for a while, you’re probably familiar with this situation. There was once an internal video conference call at the KUPL radio station, and one of the members had to go to the toilet at one point. The meeting was actually wrapping but, but he accidentally exposed himself to his colleagues in his urgency to relieve himself. Yikes.
However, it was this very incident that spurred Whatever, Inc. to design what they now call WFH Jammies. With the help of fashion designer Akihiko Kimura, they produced a sweater/button down shirt hybrid. As a result, the wearer can sit down to a video call and appear all dressed up even if they’re technically still in their pj’s.
The sweaters, which come with matching sweatpants, come in three color variations: white shirt + gray jersey, a pink shirt + black jersey, and a blue-striped shirt + dark gray jersey. Currently, they’re only available in sizes M and L. However, they are unisex, so you and your partner could both benefit from a set.
Where Can I Get One of These?
Initially, the WFH Jammies started as a joke, but Whatever, Inc,’s initial Kickstarter program met with so much success that they might be available online next month. The full outfit will allegedly be priced at around USD112.
As of this writing, the Kickstarter campaign has far exceeded its original goal to raise USD1,857. The total amount donated is now at USD8,414, and the rewards for each donor range from thank you emails and Zoom backgrounds to a complete set of WFH Jammies.
