Heinous Task Wear, pt. 2

March 28, 2009

Would suiting up in any of the following help you reserve an airline ticket, or make an appointment with a pastry chef for a wedding cake tasting?




I thought I’d look up what kinds of garments are available for difficult tasks, what garments might aid in approaching and completing tasks such as applying for a grant, reconciling multiple calendars, contesting an insurance claim.

When selecting a garment for sorting out old bills, or writing a living will, what are the attributes that might apply?

Should the garment be:

flame retardant?


Should it have:

high-visibility seams?

generous armholes?

underarm ventilation eyelets?

triple-taped seams?

a thermometer pocket?
