The versatile suit wearing man knows exactly how to butter the bread when it comes to taking out the big guns. That same man is also the master of putting the suit up when it would be too formal. But this is about the best places to wear a suit and why, with some of the places on the list a bit surprising.
This is a no brainer for anyone, and that includes those trying to get a position in casual places like Google, Facebook or even Apple. Men should take great care to wear the pants a couple of times before the interview, and make sure that they’re comfortable enough to sit in for long periods of time.
Unlike job interviews, this is pretty much a ‘mobile interview’. So, looking your best is priority #1, while comfortable shoes are priority #2. For those that will be wearing their suit without a tie, consider choosing a belt that compliments the suit. This is a common occurrence in large networking events where several different looks are on display.
The First Date
Maybe a surprise for some, but not all. Nothing impresses a first date more than a tailored suit, even a casual one. This is one of the many reasons the phrase ‘clothes make the man’ came into existence. With no guarantee of a second date, first impressions are everything.
For the presenter, it is vitally important to avoid patterned shirts. There is also the consideration of the current workplace, so if in doubt, always wear a tie. A suit jacket and tie can always be removed if you’re the most overdressed person in the room.
As in a Michelin star restaurant, one where the quality of the food should be in league with the customers that frequent it. The dress code is strict by default, so never feel the need to under dress to any type of establishment like this.
Know the event, conditions and your closet and you’ll always be at the ready when it’s time.
