Aoki releases 'Pajama Suits' for comfortable telework with a sharp look

10 Comments

As an ongoing countermeasure to the spread of the novel coronavirus, many companies in Japan that can afford to do so have shifted towards operating via telework. This has led to some interesting work-from-home inspired novelty items such as privacy tents and high-seated kotatsu to make the transition easier, there still exists the problem of perhaps having to dress up from your own home to attend a video conference.

Japanese suits maker Aoki has decided to answer the call for convenience in that regard with their new "home and work" release, a suits pajama set that gives a professional look while also having the comfortability of a pair of PJs.

Aoki's new "Pajama Suits" are available in both men and women's sizes. While they have the aesthetic of casual business wear, the suits are available in models both made from a double-knitted Melange fabric, as well as a light and elastic jersey material, allowing for more comfort and free range of movement than an actual suit. They're also safe for home wash.

Both types of pants and jackets are available from Aoki stores throughout Japan, as well as online order.

Wow, not much love in the votes for Aoki.

Thought it was a great idea and the models looked smart, but the price is off putting with the word pajamas. Should have called it, telework suit or relaxing suit...anything but pajamas
