Building a Career Wardrobe
December 14, 2014
The article below outlines the importance of thought in how one dresses. It offers a number of helpful ideas on how to build your wardrobe, even on a budget. Of particular importance, regardless of price, if the fit is wrong, the look will not be acceptable.
Many people pride themselves on smart purchases from consignment shops. If they're then reluctant to invest in tailoring for proper fit, gains in original purchase power may be lost.
In menswear, alterations are often part of a purchase. Tailoring at the point-of-purchase may be incomplete and not give the best results. They do the obvious such as sleeve lenght corrections. They may skip over less obvious things to save money. Taking in back side seams is commonly overlooked. This alteration makes a jacket skim your torso with the effect of making anyone look taller, slimmer, and well dressed.
“My jacket feels great!...It’s all about fit.
The fit makes one look better. Equally important, it makes one feel better. And when one feels better, one presents better.”
