In today’s world there is cut throat competition in all spheres, be it business, services sector, corporate, education even fashion. Any individual who is not up to the mark may lose out in the race. So it is imperative that all aspirants put their best foot forward at all times.
How does one begin evaluating an individual?
The answer is clear – it commences with the first look. This process is mostly in the subconscious mind and takes just a fraction of a second. After that all important first glance, often experienced managers can decide if someone is even worth evaluating further or not.
Here in lies the danger. An unkempt or scruffy appearance will not give a favorable impression at all. The individual may have a lot of potential but may not pass the initial scrutiny. To remain in the field, one has to prepare and groom oneself.
Hence, this is where the bespoke clothing plays its part and is valued much above made to measure or off the rack clothing.
Here the advantage is that the bespoke tailor takes the exact measurements, makes allowances for body type to present the individual in the best possible manner and then personally tailors the suit resulting in a perfect fit.
Along with the cut, the quality of the material is also important. Substandard quality of material will make even a bespoke suit look tacky and below par.
A smart appearance will inspire trust in the onlooker. A custom made suit will present an efficient and professional appearance and inspire confidence as well as trust in the mind of the onlooker.
You need to stand out amongst your peers. When management is faced with a crowd, say of interns or employees at the same level, it is difficult to evaluate.

Plain shirts present a sober image and patterned shirts are a bit more relaxed. Ties can be plain or coloured, according to personal preference.
