Ask anyone about style and the suit will always come up as one of the most stylish, timeless pieces of clothing you can wear.
The reason is simple. It makes your body shape look more attractive, improves your shoulder-to-waist ratio, the top scientifically correlated physical trait for male attraction, and symbolizes the most formal, expensive presentation you can deliver.
A suit signifies that you show respect and shows that you take your job interview, career, and life seriously, which brings respect.
But how do you buy a suit without breaking the bank? What if this is your first job interview and you don’t have thousands of dollars to spend?
This video will break down:
- how to gauge the quality of a suit
- how to get the best bargain price for a suit
- how there is a time and place to buy expensive suits
- why people judge others by appearance and how this is okay
- why you shouldn’t spend too much on the first suit (hint: $500 is over kill)
- how to leverage the power of diminishing returns (hint: this has to do with how and why billionaires get away with wearing secondhand suits)
- why context, industry, and frequency matter in your decision and how to use this to get the best price point
- why fashion social media influencers are incentivized to promote $1,000+ suits
- why physical presentation is part of the meritocracy game (for you frustrated introverts who think it’s what on the inside that counts)
- how to buy a suit and make sure it fits without getting overwhelmed by all the dozens of factors involved that other people say you should care about (hint: I cover a handful of the most important and explain why you should just focus on these)
- the best time of year to buy the suit and how (and why) the articles that rank on Google are wrong with the time of year they suggest
- a story of my experience with a Men’s Wearhouse salesman and how to avoid getting tricked liked a sucker by someone who wants to make a quick buck
Will I buy a more expensive suit in the future? You bet. I’m eyeing some more pricey suits from Suit Supply on Ebay. But as I mentioned, there is a time and place for everything.
The return on investment you will get from over-investing in a suit is just not worth it as a young professional.
What’s your experience with buying a suit? What was the best lesson you learned from this video?
