Your suits and shirts cost me no more than medium quality off the rack clothes. Instead, they are beautifully tailored and finished and are an excellent fit using top grade materials. I am absolutely delighted and will be back for more

Shop smart

The suit you buy for your interview will not be the last one you ever buy, but since it may be the first one you own, it has to be versatile: Think of it as the Swiss Army knife in your closet.

“How to Buy a Business Suit”

WHAT DO I BUY FIRST?

Primary

  • Suits
  • Sport jackets
  • Dress shirts
  • Dress pants
  • Ties

    Secondary
  • Chinos
  • Sweaters
  • Polo shirts
  • Shoes
  • Socks
  • Belts
  • Overcoats
  • Accessories

    SHOP SMART: PANTS

    Color:
    Dark gray = All business.
    Black = Sophisticated, urban.
    Tan = Earthy but sophisticated.
    Fabric: For year-round, mid weight wool and wool blends will get you through most seasons. In summertime, a tropical wool or linen is often more comfortable, while winter, a heavier wool or wool flannel will keep you better insulated.

    Style: Again, the big decision here is whether to go with pleated or flat-front pants. Each is appropriate, but some larger men may find pleated trousers more roomy . Pleated pants should be cuffed<1 ½”> whereas flat-front trousers often look more streamlined when un cuffed. As for the width of the legs, styles vary slightly every season, but not enough so that It’s noticeable. Basically, stay away from the extremes: Too narrow or too baggy. Most important, wear your trousers on your gut, but it only highlights the fact that you have one. It just looks sloppy.

    SHOP SMART: THE POLO SHIRT/SWEATER
    What it says: Although more casual than a shirt and tie, a nice polo sweater says you know how to work hard and still be comfortable.
    How to say it best: A polo works best with a sport jacket, but it’s refined enough to be paired with a suit. Navy and charcoal gray will mix best with your suits, while a maroon or dark green would likely go well with the sport jackets.

    SHOP SMART: BRIEFCASES
    Soft briefcase: The soft briefcase has replaced the hard case in the last decade.
    How to say it best: A soft leather briefcase should also be black, dark brown, or tan with either brass or silver fixtures.
    The attaché case: This tradition hand case tells people you’re all business nothing is going to get in the way of your work, even if you have to lock it up.
    How to say it best: Black, brown, or tan leather with brass or silver fixtures.

    GOALS
    There or four suits, several sport jackets and pants, many shirts and ties, a few pairs of shoes, and handful of power accessories.
    Why it matters: Building the proper business wardrobe is critical to success in the workplace as it prepares you for every occasion and signals to everyone that you being.
    Guidelines: What do I need? How much do I need?
    Quality control: At this point in your professional life, buy the best you can afford for your budget. It will certainly affect the quantity of what you purchase, but in the long run, the quality items will last longer and give you a greater return on the investment.

    HALF WINDSOR
    In this stage of your career, you have added some shirts and ties for special occasions.
    With a spread collar and slightly and thicker tie, a half windsor ,makes a nice knot.
    However, it should be an accent, not an everyday event P.M. over A.M.
    1. Being with the tie’s wide end approximately one foot below the narrow end, and cross it over the narrow end, bringing it back underneath.


  • 2. Take the wide end up trough the loop and pass it around the front from left to right.
    3. Bring it through the loop again and pass it through the knot in front.
    4. Tighten the knot slowly s you draw it up to the collar.

    Work Wardrobe
    As you begin to flourish in the workplace, your wardrobe must expand along with you. Always consider the atmosphere of your office, what your position is, and the long-term goals you have as you choose your business attire. And remember that what you see on the following pages needn’t be accumulated immediately or even one year. A wardrobe, like a career, tales time to build.

    “The whole secret of a successful life is to find out what it is one’s destiny to do, and then do it.”

    DO MY CLOTHES MEAN BUSINESS?

    Navy Interview Suit + 3 Suits = Work Wardrobe
    As with your interview suit, the suits you buy should be the best quality you can afford in classic styles. Following these guidelines will allow you versatility and will make your budget go further.
    Dark gray suit
    Just like a navy suit, gray is basic but vital. Everything looks good with gray and everything mixes with it. The fabric should be a worsted wool that can be worn nearly all year-round. A two-or three-button style is best , either with a single rear vent or without.
    The world, of course, is not black and white, it’s gray and with good reason. It’s elegant and formal. A man in gray is serious and unassailable. The tailoring on this suit should be the same s with the inside of the waist, they’re for suspenders.

    Light Gray Suit
    For a third suit, light gray is a smart option. It is just as versatile as its darker cousin, and can be worn further into the summer months. A khaki suit is an alternative for this as well.
    Opt for some variation between your gray suits. For instance, if the dark one is two-button, make this one there.

    Khaki Popkin Suit
    A warm weather essential for any man, the khaki suit is like navy for the summer. Split this suit in half when on the road and you have a pair of khaki pants or a khaki pants or a khaki jacket.
    The khaki suit is slightly more casual than darker suits, poplin is also lightweight, which makes it ideal for summer. Because the fabric is so lightweight, be sure the suit is pressed often. Otherwise, you can look like an unmade bed.

    Bulletproof
    The most formal sport jacket there is, a blazer is appropriate un any work environment and arguably the hardest-working item in your closet. A blazer with a little bit of structure in the shoulders and lining will fit more like a suit jacket than a more casual coat. Traditionally, the blazer has gold buttons, but almost any store will offer dark navy buttons as well, or replace them free of charge. Go for this option: You’re not Thurston Howell lll.

    The Blue Blazer
    The blue blazer is like the remote control: Quite simply, on man can live without one. Perfect for the office, business lunchs travel, and weekends, a blazer can dress you up and take you anywhere. As with your suits, try to get a wool blazer that’s enough for summer and heavy enough for winter. Two-button single-breasted is there-button is perfectly acceptable.

    COLLAR
    The collar of a jacket or suit should be lined with wool. This will help it lie flat against the neck and shoulders.

    BUTTONS
    Look for quality stitching around the buttons, meaning the thread itself many times to anchor them.

    POCKETS
    The pockets should be lined with rayon or cotton. This will help the jacket
    maintain its shape better. To ensure this even more, don’t open your jacket pockets.
