As untailored casual fades and crisp, tailored looks re-emerge, today’s businessmen are re-inventing their wardrobes. Here are some ideas from Christopher’s Custom High Efficiency Shopping Strategies that might suit your fancy!
Once you have this outfit covered, consider adding a super sport coat that will utilize the accessories you have purchased to go with your new suit! This look is perfect for business casual at the office or holiday parties where a jacket and tie are preferred.
Finally, for weekend, take the same sport coat, pair it with your favorite jeans, a pair of your favorite boots, and a custom casual sport shirt for a great way to show that you’re making it and appreciate fine clothing!…but all you need to pull this final outfit together is the right shirt along with your existing jeans and boots!
Did you know that the number of Fortune 1000 companies allowing casual dress five days/week has actually declined from 52% in 2002 to 36% in 2010 and is expected to decline another 6% to 30% when 2011’s numbers are reported?
By contrast, that number was 25% in 1995…there appears to be a strong movement back toward more attentive dress amongst professionals!
My younger customers certainly understand the importance of dressing appropriately and have very polished ideas of what they want. That air of confidence one exudes when they are dressed appropriately is unmistakable.
