The Ecommerce News Roundup – 18 October 2021

Apparently the “suit is an endangered garment” according to Sir John Timpson.

Working from home has certainly changed how many of us dress during the day and ‘waist-up’ fashion is more popular than ever, but we should never underestimate the impact of looking ‘sharp’.

We say the suit isn’t dead – it’s merely waiting for its resurrection. A re-birth into something that still ticks the boxes for those that love formality alongside those that yearn for the comfortable.

And when it comes to recruiting, we’d suggest always looking professional – you don’t want to get caught wearing your pjs during your Zoom interview… and yes it does happen!

Here’s something you can do in your pj’s though – check out this week’s ecommerce & digital news.

You’re very welcome!
