Ever watched the Great Gatsby?
A great movie in all aspects, story, wardrobe, wardrobe, wardrobe ..okay you see where I am going with this, right?
I just love the wardrobe, and especially suits that Leonardo DiCaprio wore in the movie. Why? One of the reasons, they fit him perfectly!
Notice also how he wears a suit for most of the part of the movie?
What is in a SUIT? Why wear one?
… Well firstly because no successful politician turned up in sweat pants and a daggy t-shirt to give a speech why he or she should be elected – says Nou Koncept
“We are more likely to believe, respect and obey the man who wears a suit”
The suit is the most important garment worn by men, and women on which most people will judge the wearer’s status, character and abilities.
And, since it covers the upper torso, which is the focal point of most people with whom we communicate, it is the central power garment that establishes our position as inferior, equal or superior in any in-person business situation.
Remember that in any level of society, suits are associated with authority, position or power. Suits are positive authority symbols!
Buying a suit should be a serious and thoughtful endeavor and not a casual fifteen minutes splurge.
Factors to consider about a suit purchase: color, pattern, texture, weight, material and style.
Remember also that every body type is built different so your choice of suit investment may vary from off the rack, made to measure or custom fit.
If it’s off the rack, remember to dress your best when you go shopping. The level of service you receive will be determined by your own body image. Store clerks will judge or treat you according to the clothes you are wearing.
Otherwise, if you are investing in made to measure or custom fit, the tailor is your consultant for color, pattern, texture, weight, material and style.
A few tips when investing a lot of money in suit or first time purchase:
Choose fabric that will last you 7-8 years.
Choose a traditional and conservative design over texture or trends
Choose your suit from a reliable dealer -JT Molloy
