Your business suit is all about one thing. How you are apparent by all persons with whom you come into contact during the course of your business dealings.

Obviously, your abilities, records and achievements in your business dealings are the major factor, but without a good suit it can sometimes be enormously difficult to take someone seriously.

There are going to be occasions when someone is known famously in their business circle for being a real shabby dresser. There are, and will always be heads of large corporations who arrive for work each day in jeans and t-shirt, but they are the exception rather than the rule.

A man who is dressed very smart and fashionable will always be taken sincerely. It gives you a head start because it’s assumed you take as much arrogance in your work as your appearance.

Sadly, in the upper echelons of business, a honest suit is not always enough. If you are submitting a proposal to the board of your prospective clients wearing a nice, well fitted top designer suit you will look “the part” and those listening will automatically assume you know what you are talking about.

Imagine if the roles were overturned and you were sitting meeting the representative of a company who wished to sell to you.
Without giving it too much thought, if he is dressed in a cheap suit you will instantly have a reduced perception of, not only him, but his proposal and the company he represents.

Psychologists will tell you that forming a first impression is inevitable. And first impressions really do count.

How many times have we formed an opinion of someone simply because of the way they give the impression of being, only to later discover that you were wrong. Don’t ever allow that to happen to you.

Always wear the best and most fashionable business suit you can. Create a great first impression….sometimes you may not have a second chance.
