The Pure Wool Suit
Invest in a pure wool suit (or as close to 100% as possible). Not only is its quality obvious to the eye, it also responds to the changes in your body temperature. It insulates you when it’s cold outside, and helps wick moisture away from your skin if you’re sweating. Also, wool fibres are more elastic than other fibres. They stretch and move with you, but when returned to the hanger, they resume their natural shape.
The Classic Shirt
You can never have enough crisp, white shirts in your wardrobe – they go with everything. When buttoned up, your shirt collar should neither be too tight nor too loose. Find your perfect size by measuring the circumference of your neck where the shirt collar will be, or make sure there is enough space inside the collar to comfortably fit one finger.
The Silk Tie
Your choice of tie says a lot about your personality. Stick to classic college stripes, checks or dots for the office. Investing in a silk tie is always a good idea, but be careful to take good care of it or else you’re wasting you’re money. Let the professionals clean any messes or stains on it, and never leave your tie knotted as it will distort the fabric. Roll it up when storing.
