Suit Powerful Suit!

untitled
The suit is the single most important garment worn by men; not only because it is the most expensive and requires the greatest amount of time for selection and fitting, but because it is the garment on which most people judge the wearer’s status, character and abilities.

And since it covers the upper torso, which is the focal point of most people with whom we communicate, it is the central power garment, the one garment that establishes our position as inferior, equal or superior in any in-person business situation. In this case the equality policy just does not work. You are wearing a suit or you do not! And if you are against a person who is wearing a suit and you do not, guess who will win the case, the sale, the woman? (OK just kidding for the last one).

Suits are positive authority symbols, worn by the upper middle class, the people who make important decisions in our society. Parliament, White House, Elysee Palace…We are much more likely to believe, respect and obey the man who wears a suit than the man who does not. Men who do not wear suit may have important functions in our society, but we do not normally accord them such in our minds. In any level of society, suits are associated with authority, with position, with power.
