Do you remember my post about Welcome Summer?

Well, in our taxi ride on the way to the airport Saturday, Dave pointed out this sign to me- I was so excited, I had to take a picture:

You may have thought I was joking about the coolbiz attire, but yes it ACTUALLY is a phrase here and some type of official summer dress code. The thing I think is funny is the choice of when to use English words- notice it's the only one on the sign. The other thing is it's written in English spelling- in Japanese, there are no sounds with an "L" in them, it would actually be spelled "kurubizu" (the Japanese phrase highlighted in blue on the right reads exactly that), so does having it written in the proper English spelling make it even cooler?
