“It is both delusional and stupid to think that clothes don’t really matter and we should all wear whatever we want. Most people don’t take clothing seriously enough, but whether we should or not, clothes do talk to us and we make decisions based on people’s appearances”, these are golden words spoken by one of the best fashion editors in the world, G. Bruce Boyer.
For a man, a suit is a definition of well-groomed. While some may argue that it is cumbersome to put one on, there is something extremely attractive about a man in a suit. Moreover, it bestows exponential power to the wearer.
While suits are a necessity at formal functions and business offices, wearing them more often can positively impact your life. Here are some reasons to make your suit a part of your daily wardrobe.
1. Feel More Important
Wearing a suit makes you look more important. Wearing one in your day-to-day life can help you get special attention in restaurants, at events and even when you travel. A well-dressed man is assumed to have status. Men with authority are typically dressed in suits because wearing one makes it a lot easier to ask for things and get things done (your way).
2. Gain Confidence
Usually, when you wear a suit you tend to stand out. People want to talk to you more. It adorns your personality and makes you more noticeable. And because people look at you like you are important, they value your opinions more. All this can be a major confidence booster which can benefit your personal and social life. Stylish look is not just for public events or visiting elite casino without Gamestop, it can be perfect for your eveday.
3. Fosters Success
A suit is the uniform of success. According to a research conducted at California State University, people who wear suits more often are abstract thinkers. The study saw that suit wearers could deal with situations such as criticism at work better than casual wearers. They could take a step back from the negativity rather than letting it affect their self-esteem. They could also handle their finances better by cutting down on impulse purchases and making more long-term investments. Researchers also said that be it a wedding or a work commitment, in all situations, the person in a suit was mostly confident enough to step out of his comfort zone, prompting him to make more significant decisions with ease. Who would have thought dressing up a little could contribute to success?
4. Gain Respect
The world’s perception of you changes when you wear a suit. People tend to take you more seriously and often, look at you with more respect. There’s a reason people wear suits to interviews – you look more professional and respectable. This can lead to major promotions at work and growth. In your personal life too – most women love a man in a well-fitted suit.
Wearing a suit is also a way of demonstrating respect by following a prescribed dress code and showing that you’ve made an effort. Wearing a suit signifies that you are taking the other person more seriously and are striving to stand up to their expectations. A suit portrays power, respect, discipline and sophistication.
5. Saves Money (and Time!)
While a suit might come across as an expensive investment, it is a long term one. A well tailored suit made out of good quality fabric can last you years and although the silhouette trends and colours may vary from year to year, a classic navy or charcoal isn’t going out of fashion anytime soon. If a suit is your daily attire (and you have your go-to tailor), you save time shopping for clothes and rummaging through your wardrobe trying to match a pant and t-shirt ensemble!
So there you have it – wearing a suit can be beneficial in so many ways. Of course, not any suit will do; you need to ensure that the colour, the fabric, and most importantly, the fit, is just right.
