More specifically, Shinagawa station.

What's up wth all the white shirts and dark grey slacks?

They all look soooo excited and all seem to be very happy wearing all the same belts.!!

They don't seem to be following the new summer clothing guideline. I think salarywomen were happy for the change but less salarymen seem to have taken up the change and continue with white shirts and dark trousers.

And what's up with the rolled up long sleeves? The short sleeves look so much neater than the rolled up long sleeves. If I was in charge, I'd make it illegal to roll up long sleeves. Good grief, if you're going to wear long sleeves, wear 'em properly and button the cuffs!

Serrano - Although Japanese summers are a bit hot to wear long sleeves rolled up, it's a much more distinguished and masculine look than short sleeved dress shirts. Guys wearing these look just a few years removed from junior high school

Glad to see that some guys realise that's it's cooler without the wigs?

"Although Japanese summers are a bit hot to wear long sleeves rolled up, it's a much more distinguished and masculine look than short sleeved dress shirts"

Ha ha ha ha! Distinguished? More like sloppy! Masculine? "Hey, I've got my sleeves rolled up, I'm a tough guy" ha ha ha, more like "I don't have sense enough to wear proper clothing in the summer."

hoserfella, Serrano beat me to it. Thanks for the laugh. Using the words masculine and distinquished to describe Japanese salarymen is truly hilarious. These guys think about 5 seconds thinking about their "look" -- in a whole year. They wear whatever their wife buys them and everyone else in the office wears. Wouldn't want to be the only mate at the izakaya without the rolled up, wrinkled white shirt, with just one button un-buttoned at the neck, and grey slacks. You'd be the nail that gets hammered down.

I don't see it like that. If I buy a long sleeve shirt I can roll up the sleeves in summer and down in winter. I have very sensitive skin being a previous red head. Outdoors my skin burns quickly so I can roll my sleeves down outdoors and up indoors.

Why dont they tun off of the TV's? I would rather an elevator or AC that 50 TV's displaying

Serrano - Like I said, the Japanese summer and its humidity is a different animal, but when it cools down and I have a choice, its a long sleeved shirt rolled up. If you think the junior high school look is cooler, well, have at it. (Do I also have to add the hahaha or LOL to show my disapproval? Is that a rule now? I just can't keep up with you teens these days) herefornow - I agree that salarymen here in their $150 suits could care less about being fashionable, I wasnt talking about them although it's possible for them to look better given the chance.

It's the uniform! "The nail that stands up must be hammered down!"

With the electricity restrictions being lifted we should see the aircons being turned back on in the subways of Tokyo.

I think there are more than 80 of those displays in Shinagawa station..and they are displaying...the amount of energy we are using? What a waste of energy.

Is this a scene from the new George Romero flick?

Love the TV's showing how much capcaity of electricity generated is being consumed! The next view on the screens thanks everyone for their co-operation insaving electricity. Slightly daft?

to the short sleevers VS long sleevers - rolled or unrolled......is it really worth it?

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Rolled, unrolled, short ot not, who cares. The men at the centre of the photo look to me to be from the same team, they are walking together.

Osukare samadeshita.. You work is appreciated...

The monitors are most likely displaying electrical capacity level. What percentage of that capacity level is occupied by monitors displaying the capacity level?

That's just the drab sarariman wear they all dress in. I agree with the short sleeve comment - they look nasty, and like you should be in school or as a coach driver in Outback Australia. I wore thin fabric long sleeves during the brutal J summers I experienced.

Very uncool biz! Short sleeves are the way to go, for those that work in the sun the UV long sleeves are the go.

The guy with the halo on his head caught my attention. Red Bull must be in short supply in Japan.

t's the norm. And IMHO, it still looks more stylish than a typical scene at Ogilvie Transportation Centre in Chicago in summer where you see proportionately more obese people dressed in typical tan chinos and a beat up polo shirt, or fat women in spandex leggings....

In a bid to conserve energy, got to love the irony of having 50 TV monitors displaying how much energy is being used.
