This what I notice. You don't always have to get expensive stuff to look nice. Sure I have some ~$300 jeans I love, but I also have some $10 shirts from Starter. One of my favorite dress shirts is this nice blue one I paid like $25 for and got tailored.
Most important fashion tips:
If you're going to spend money, SPEND ON A WATCH, SHOES AND A HAT aka things you wear all the time, THUS YOU GET THE BEST BANG FOR BUCK!
The important thing is NOT name brand, it's FIT and colors that work well with your skin tone and body type
Also make sure you take care of your body, no you don't need to be "jacked," but don't be a sloppy oaf. Being 14-16% bodyfat (for men, women it's obv higher) with muscle mass is impressive to the average person and incredibly easy to maintain, so take care of yourself as well, you want to talk about wearing things 24/7? Try looking up this thing called your "body" apparently you can't get rid of it!
Finally, make sure you have GOOD POSTURE, there is nothing worse than seeing a good looking or even fit person with a hunched back or severe posture issues, especially in the day and age when you can correct that shit in a few weeks
You have infected my brain with dreams of French cuffs. Everywhere I go I see "manager shirts" and "leader shirts". I see politicians who are fighting for votes who try and look nice, and look like they are trying too hard (barrel cuffs) . Then I see the guys wearing those beautiful French cuffs and that is all I can see. It is just so beautiful.
I need some French cuffs. I have to get some! A sport coat, a nice silver watch, beautiful French cuffs and polished shoes... Just oozes class.
I got one for you , what suit for selling to lawyers?
On the one hand thats a crowd that sees so many suits that it might all be a blur
On the other hand , thats a crowd that sees so many suits that theyd notice every minute detail gone wrong
Some kind of basic formal grey suit? I feel like 3 piece might be overkill but I have so much damn fun wearing the things
Obviously the seer sucker in my profile pic is a no go unless I get transported back in time to the 1930's deep south
Yeaaahhhh...how to dress for online calls?
I typically wear jeans, polo, street boots, watch. I've intended to upgrade to jeans, button down, loafers, watch. But perhaps I should go to <better pants>, button down, sport coat, loafers, watch?
I saw a lot of talk about suits. That's great, but in some businesses, professional attire is different.
The owner of most industrial, contractor, or other blue collar businesses pretty much wears a thin polo shirt (or fishing shirt), jeans or khaki pants, and work boots. Cowboy boots work too in the south.
This is kind of a hard one to pull off because you want to look professional but if you're out in the heat a lot or there's grinding, cutting, and debris around you, a suit would just make you look silly.
However, at a certain scale of company, a suit would be appropriate. Eventually, the owner is mostly in the office.
There are some businesses where you probably don't want to look too "silk stocking." At least, not outside the board room. Do you wear a wool suit when you go out to inspect the work of a bunch of lumber men? Perhaps not. There's also the skill of transitioning to appropriate attire for the occasion.
