The Getup: Cubicle Life

The Getup: Cubicle Life

Feeling like you have your own space is hard when your walls are only 4 feet tall.

    I’m in love with the shirt, belt and watch. Oh, man, that watch. I’ve also never thought of wearing desert boots to work. I think I might try that today.

    Interesting…all i know about cubicles is what i see in movies…but why is it assumed that the dress moves down to the far end of business casual ?

  • Matt

    This outfit is 1000 times better than 75% of the people who work in my building. I never thought of the digi frame instead of taking up too much space with multiple normal framed pics. I will def be putting that on my list of things to pick up. Nice article as always. Great suggestion, Josh.

    As always, great getup. In case anyone else is interested in that awesome USB Swiss Army Knife, I found a similar (possibly identical.. I’m pretty sure the pictures are the same) knife at the Nat Geo store for only $31.99. Here’s the link: http://shop.nationalgeographic.com/ngs/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=2000015&code=SR50002

    Jake, Apologies, the two aren’t connected. Some cubicle workplaces may require a dressier getup, I chose to build a casual but professional one.

    Hooray for the AeroPress! That’s how I make my coffee (and it’s the best damn coffee I’ve ever tasted). I told some co-workers about it today, and they clearly thought I was crazy.

    Like the way that this is put together, good looking but not too dressy for a bunch of engineers.

    Please, please, please no ties without a jacket. Just lose the tie at that point.

      Matt, I couldn’t disagree more. I’ve heard that notion floating around but for me the tie has a place in more casual style as well.

    35″ is the longest sleeve at Land’s End ? That seems really short .. oh well. Nice “Getup” as usual

    Another great getup. How do you make these?? Some sort of plugin or custom coding or what?

      I know i’m WAY late but he’s probably throwing this all together in Photoshop (or InDesign/similar program) then slicing up the image with links in their corresponding area.

    I feel like a linen blazer would really pull this together. Any suggestions for other colors?
