"Workplace with suntan lotion"

After a venture-capital presentation at a Hamptons home three years ago, guests were moved poolside for cocktails. Several people donned bathing suits. “After that, I felt I knew them very well,” says Jonscott Turco, an attendee who watched the swimmers frolic from the safety of his business suit.

Mr. Turco sometimes sees those people in Manhattan these days.

Same with the people he has dubbed “White Bikini,” “Leopard Bikini” and “Board Shorts.”
