Understanding The Role Of A Business Suit When Power Dressing  

Men turn rely on their business suit to portray a sense of power, especially when they’re performing in an executive role. It can be difficult to make sure that your suit presents this image, though, especially if you’re just starting your career. If you’re updating a decades-old wardrobe, it can be even more difficult.

Forget about the dark, frumpy, baggy suits that were popular in the past. These days, men are turning to straight lines, slim cuts, and lighter fabrics for their business suit needs.

Fabrics for Your Business Suit

Fabrics in power suits were heavier and darker in the past. These days, it’s more common for men to seek lighter fabrics, both in color and weight. The fabric drapes over the body better, and doesn’t look quite as stiff.

Light wool suits, such as a two-button pinstripe, will fit well on most body types. They also tend to portray an image of confidence. Men who wear these suits often find that their behavior is impacted positively by upgrading to the right type of business suit, so consider doing the same if you’re looking for a promotion or even a new job.

Colors for Your Business Suit

While most men are turning to blacks, navies, and charcoals for their suits, more informed men areincorporating a hint of color in theirs. This takes a bold personality to pull it off effectively, but if you’re able to do so, you’ll make an impression that’s long lasting.

Consider adding white piping or a purple lining to your suit. Make it pop with a colorful pocket square, or a provocative tie. Just make sure that you consult with your tailor before finalizing your decision, as some color combinations may be considered a fashion faux-pas.

The Perfect Fit

Your tailor will work hard to make sure that your business suit fits perfectly. After all, that’s the whole reason you’re working with him instead of picking up a suit off the rack. But the perfect fit isn’t just about taking your measurements and making sure that nothing is too loose or too tight.

When you’re aiming to power dress, you want to make sure that your suit contains provocative, bold, straight lines. Work with your tailor closely and everything will turn out absolutely magnificent.

You should also plan on spending some time working with your tailor to refine the details of your suit, such as the buttons and linings. You have far more control over how your suit is tailored than you may realize.

While you may laugh at the notion, you can even have your tailor include special pockets in your suit – such as a pocket for a flask, or one for your gun holster. The opportunity for customization is truly limitless. Just make sure you don’t abuse that power, though, or you could end up with a suit that’s more reminiscent of a clown’s outfit than what big, powerful, business men wear.

If, however, you’ve chosen the right tailor, this isn’t a concern. You see, a tailor will work closely to satisfy your requests, but a good tailor won’t let you make any mistakes when it comes to how your suit will look.

Of course, if you insist that your tailor give your business suit a certain style or appearance, he’ll most likely oblige. Just be sure to take your tailor’s opinion into consideration, and you’ll be likely to find yourself with a suit that gives the impression you’re looking for.

Once you have a wardrobe full of suits that portray an image of power and success, you’ll be on the fast track to whatever goals you have set in your career.
