Fashion Writer Says People Shouldn’t Wear Sweatpants For Work At Home, People Online Disagree

If you’re like me and thousands of other people who are stuck working from home, you’re probably dressed in your worn-out but still comfy sweatpants or even Pj’s. These days many of us choose comfort over restricting office dress codes and are very happy to have this opportunity. However, there are people (hopefully there’s just a few) who think that this choice is both un-adultlike and disrespectful to your coworkers.

More info: twitter.com

Recently, a writer for the Los Angeles Times, Adam Tschorn, wrote a harsh piece telling people who are working from home not to wear sweatpants

One of them is Adam Tschorn, a deputy fashion editor who wrote a piece condemning sweatpants. In an article titled ‘Enough with the WFH sweatpants. Dress like the adult you’re getting paid to be’ Tschorn list his pwn reasons why we all should get suited up for our work from home sessions.

If you’re feeling a little bit offended and maybe even attacked by this bold statement, you’re not alone. As expected, the article didn’t prompt people to ditch sweatpants. Instead, they decided to trow a painful roasting session for Tschorn to make it clear that sweatpants are not going anywhere.

However, the article wasn’t received as well as Adam probably expected since people responded by roasting him

According to Adam himself, the best response comes from this twitter user

Ridiculous. People who are working from home are working. They are being professional and doing their jobs. Who gives an *expletive deleted* what they wear? So-called 'professional dress' is nonsense anyway, and even more so in these times.

Professional dress? Just a social construct. Doesn't make you more effective, just well trained. No thanks.

Week 5 without a bra. The biggest upside to this whole thing is finishing my work day without lines dug into my arms/shoulders (yes, I have them professionally fitted! Before I did, they would abrade skin).

And let's be honest, even professionally fitted means they only fit really well for a percentage of the time - hormones altering the size of breasts for a certain length of time each month. That is when they also hurt and comfort becomes more desirable than anything. Sigh.

I get paid for doing my job, not for wearing suits. Dressing up actually distracts me.
