There’s more to sartorial excellence than the monochrome look of the quintessential businessman's tailored suit. Pocket squares, spotted ties, and tanned brogues are often the visual barometers of our personality, but what about the suit? What does your custom tailored three-piece suit scream to the world about your inner psyche?
You might think the brown suit is your dear old dad's or even your grandad’s go-to suit for any occasion, and you’d probably be right. However, the connection we often make between the older generation and brown tailored suits also instills a sense of dependability.
When you don the brown threads of your father’s generation, you’ve given yourself an advantage in the popularity stakes. Brown relaxes us and makes us feel safe, so while you may not be the life and soul of the party, you’ll be the one people trust to take care of their car keys while they foolishly attempt the limbo in their work gear.
As you may know, dressing down a suit takes more than rolling up those shirt sleeves. Yes sir, there’s more than one way to skin this sartorial cat.
For example, a smart pair of trainers or a tieless, buttoned up collar does the trick nicely; both speak volumes about your inner wild child raging against the shackles and rules of formalwear.
The free spirited soul is the man who’s unafraid to take risks and often puts morals and doing the right thing far above personal gain or advancement. Not a bad guy to have in your corner.
‘If it’s worth doing, then it’s worth doing right’ is likely the mantra you find yourself repeating throughout the day if you’re this type of guy. Wearing a three-piece suit doesn’t take more effort than pulling on a regular two-piece, but it says a lot about your approach to life.
You have an uncompromising attention to detail, which makes you the perfect man to take on difficult tasks and to do your very best no matter what. There’s no doubt having an image like this can have an extremely positive effect on your career.
By accessorized, we d0 mean with plenty of splashes of colour. The creative soul yearns to break free of that monochrome look we mentioned earlier with daring choices of hues and patterns in pocket squares, ties, and even shirts.
Green, yellow, purple, and orange are the colours most often chosen by the creative type, which indicate to the subconscious mind of your boss that you are the man to handle that new advertising campaign, new project or new client.
You may have noticed each of these suit choices have distinct advantages in both social and work settings but - and it’s a big but - you should never try to pull off a look that just isn’t you. If it doesn’t feel right, then it probably isn’t.
Yes, it might look great but if, for example, you are not the creative type, then you don't want put that idea into your peer’s minds. If you do, chances are one day you’ll be asked to test your mettle against other creative types and fall short of the finish line. Be yourself and choose the suit that immediately grabs your attention for all the right reasons because this is the one that will tie in perfectly with your personality.
