File this under “Things We Wish We’d Thought of Ourselves But Love Too Much to Really Care.” This week, our team is crushing on Industry of One, a newly hatched periodical that explores the relationship between our work and what we wear to it.

The site follows hip-lookin’ professionals from various industries for a week, photographing and interviewing them about the moments and wardrobe choices that make up the workweek. The hope, say Industry’s creators, is to capture “the relationship between one’s line of work [and] walk of life.” A lofty goal, but we think Industry does the job well.

    This is such a novel idea. Being a college junior, I kind of dread the day I get a “real” job (or a job at all – fingers crossed!) because I don’t want fall into conventions of wearing boring old suits day in and day out. It’ll be nice to check out a periodical that includes real professionals who know how to dress uniquely and dress well!

    Really cool idea, but they all look so angry! That’s why I like ModCloth, most everyone’s smiling. :)

    They could follow me around. I’m a grad student, that’s an acceptable career alternative, right? ;)

    Seriously though, it would be nice if they picked people with a greater variety of job types. Most of those people were designers or artists. It would be nice to see how engineers, accountants, and other professionals dressed for work.
