Business Casual

...with an emphasis on casual.

This anecdote is actually from a while back, when G started his job. I remember arguing with him for some time before he somehow convinced me that (dark) jeans are okay for work. I just couldn't get my Japanese head around it.

  2. Haha, yeah, only the higher ups (very high ups) wore suits in all the german companies I worked at / had internships at / visited. If one of the "normal" people had turned up in a suit, wow, that would have been really strange.
    I actually like it better that way (or maybe it's only that I'm used to it?). Everyone's wearing suits here and it's so... official and boring ;)

    1. Hi Kerstin! Yeah, suits are everywhere in Japan, right? It almost doesn't matter what kind of a job you have...blegh. I definitely prefer the relaxed office-wear culture in Germany. Thank goodness. I can barely stand collared shirts!
