Tips for Your Executive Wardrobe
Looking the part promises both personal and financial success. These tips will help you select a high quality wardrobe and keep it in top condition.

In suits look for...
Classic fabrics, patterns, and colors which are always in style and easy to accessorize.
Well-defined lapel points: when squeezed they should return to their original shape without wrinkles.
Smooth, straight seams with a single row of stitching.
Contoured jacket collar that lies smoothly around the neck with no space between it and your shirt.
Properly aligned vents.
Blended natural fiber and synthetic fabrics, which provide the best look, comfort, and durability.


Do’s and Don’ts for Classic Business Attire
Quality garments wear longer, fit better, and therefore save you money in the long run.
Above all, if your clothing projects an image of authority, others will respond to you in kind. Here are a few suggestions for maintaining the proper image at all times:


Do Not wear sportscoats on weekdays. You wouldn't wear a three-piece suit on the golf course, neither should you wear sporty clothes to the office.
Do Not wear short-sleeved shirts ever under suit coats. To show a clean cuff is a must.
Do Not wear ankle socks. Hairy legs are not attractive! They interrupt the silhouette flow from your trousers to your shoes.
Do Not wear clip-on ties. Neither your boss nor your most important client wears them.
Do wear your suit jacket when you conduct business beyond your office. Your authority travels with you.
Do keep hair and nails clean and neat.


A single-breasted suit is appropriate for all fields of employment. Single-breasted jackets come in a variety of styles, including the classic 2 button and modern 3 button & 4 button styles.


When wearing a single-breasted suit with more than 2 buttons, you may button just the top, just the middle or all of the buttons, except the bottom button. Always leave the bottom button on a single-breasted jacket undone.


You may prefer a double-breasted suit for your meetings. They usually have two columns of visible buttons on the front of the jacket and one hidden anchor button inside of the overlap. Always button the anchor button so that the right and left sides of the jacket hang evenly.


Most suits come with pants that are either double- or triple-pleated. Whether you go with a cuffed or plain hem, the weight of a cuff helps pleats to hang smoothly and gives the pants a stylish drape.

Suit trousers fit differently than jeans and casual pants. They should feel fuller through the thigh and should be worn at your waist, not on your hips. Your suit depends in large part on the type of job you perform, but charcoal gray and navy blue are always appropriate. Whether pinstriped, plaid, solid, or herringbone, these colors always represent a professional look and are ideal for more conservative fields like accounting, law, and medicine. Two-button, vented, and softer shoulder garments in medium to dark tones are ideal for these types of careers.


If you have a position in marketing, advertising, high-tech, service industries and other more creative or casual fields, you can go with the above options or with a more fashion-forward suit, such as three- or four-button models in earth tones or possibly even black. Add hound’s-tooth and more textured fabrics in lighter to medium tones to the above options, as well as non-vented jackets with extended shoulders. The more creative the work environment, the more creative your options can be for the color and style of your attire.


Look for suits made of 100% "worsted" wool. The worsting process involves selecting long wool fibers and twisting them into tight and resilient yarns. Worsted wool yarns create year round, wrinkle resistant and durable fabrics.


Wool is a natural fiber that breathes, which means you'll be more comfortable, you'll perspire less, and the fabric will travel well. Look for suit jackets that are fully lined and pants that are lined to the knee.
Lining increases comfort and reduces wrinkling.


Adding a crotch liner to your suit pants will reduce the abrasion between your thighs and the fabric. Crotch liners help your pants last longer.


Your suit jacket should lie smoothly over your shoulders and across your back. The length of your suit jacket should be long enough to cover up your entire seat and look proportional to your physique.
The jacket collar should closely follow the silhouette of the neck with no gaping. Your jacket sleeves should fall just at or below the break of your wrists.


A traditional look is to show 1/4 to 1/2 inch of shirt cuff below your jacket sleeve, but it is really a matter of personal preference. The waist of your trousers should be just at or slightly below your navel and should fit snugly without feeling tight. A standard suit waist size is generally six inches smaller than a suit's jacket size.
Your tie should make you appear businesslike and complete a professional-looking package. Purchase a tie that is 100% silk, which assures the best knot. They can also be dry-cleaned. Find out what the dress code is prior to making a statement. Wear jewelry sparingly for your meetings. In some settings, it may detract from your professional appearance.


Limit yourself to one ring per hand, and leave earrings at home. When coordinating colors, remember, leather-to-leather and metal-to-metal. Always match the color of your belt with your shoes and the color of your belt buckle with your watch.


No matter how beautiful or costly your suit, if it doesn't fit well, you're not going to look good.
