"There are a lot of individual styles here," said Stephen Pinson, curator of photographs at the library. "People will be surprised because employees don't fit into a category." Indeed, work wear at the New York Public Library, as profiled in the Wall Street Journal piece, ranges from conservative classics to brightly colored ensembles to consignment shop gems to hand-sewn attire. The diversity of looks among the sixteen library employees profiled is refreshing.

Jessica Pigza, assistant curator of rare books at the library, told the Wall Street Journal, "My mom taught me to sew when I was a kid. I try to mix things I make with the things I have." In the photo of her featured in the slideshow, Pigza is wearing Indigo by Clarks shoes, known for their style and comfort, because "I spend my time walking around on marble floors."
