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.

Job Interviews

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 pants a couple of times before the interview.

Make sure that they’re comfortable enough to sit in for long periods of time. A traditional, classic fit suit is what everyone recommends.


Networking Events

Unlike job interviews, this is pretty much a ‘mobile interview’. So, looking at 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.


Business Presentations

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.

If in doubt, stick to the business-casual attire. It will definitely make you look smart and competent while giving you an elegant look at the same.

Upscale Restaurants

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.

Wearing a Suit in a Restaurant

Know the event, conditions, and your closet and you’ll always be at the ready when it’s time.
