They say the clothes make the man, we don’t know how much we would agree with that statement, but it has its merit. First impressions really do count and you may think that’s very superficial but, here we’ll explain the concept.
The Difference a Tailored Suit Can Make
You may be thinking, why do I have to go to a suit shop near me and spend incredible money on a custom tailored suit? Well, if we change our perspective and think of it as an investment in our self and our professional future the concept is clearer. Put yourself in the place of an employer or a high-end client. One wants to pay you big money and the other wants to make you big money.
If you were in their shoes and someone came to you as a potential employee that handles high-end clients, you would be looking for someone who looked sharp as a tack wouldn’t you? What if you were a client that was spending a boat load of money with a company on a service or product? Consider: would you do business with someone who was dressed business casual, or would you rather consider doing business with someone in a custom tailored suit? Think about it, if you’re making great money from an effective product, you’ll be living well right? So, sales come from looking the part. It boils down to trust.
What About Other Circumstances?
No matter where you go or what you do, image is everything. If you’re one of those aforementioned men who are a high-end client or employer, then you’ve made it so to speak right?
Once you’ve accomplished this, you’ll want to date and make friends that mirror your success. So, that means getting out there and mingling. If you’re swimming in a pool that’s less sharp than you, you’re bound to be cheating yourself out of the highest quality people right? Let’s paint that picture for you, just as we did with the professional image.
You’ve worked yourself hard, you have the home you want, you dine in the best restaurants and you’re thinking that you may want to find a woman to share it all with. You know, as a professional success story that you’ll want to put your best foot forward. You want that person to mirror as much of your core values as you. So, what does that have to do with the suit you’re wearing? Well, if you haven’t gotten the point by now, we’ll make it clear. You’re judged by the way you present yourself the first time you meet someone.
If you’re well-presented then, chances are you’ll be able to attract someone that’s as together and sharp as you. No one likes to waste their time, so when you walk into a room you’ll attract the type of person that you can start a dialogue immediately with instead of wasting communication time with everyone that walks up to you. It’s only fair to you and to them.
