Now that college is almost over for me, I must go through the painful process of finding a job. What that means is that i must trade my usual wardrobe with the likes of a dsquared leather jacket, rogan jeans, adidas sneakers for a suit, oxfords, and a nice haircut. However, i have no clue about choosing a suit. The only criterias im aware of is that a first suit must be navy or charcoal gray. Also, i made up my mind that i would only buy a canvassed suit. The other problem lies in choosing a suit that will not compromise my current style at my young age. no offense, but I dont want to look like an investment banker even though i probably will be working in the finance sector. what im trying to say is that i need to find a suit with modern styling that will not stand out in the office, but not allow me to look like a corporate stiff as well. A suit that i will not look old in (unless I'm able look and dress like clooney, then i dont care). A suit where as soon as i leave the office, im able to remove the tie, remove the top collar button, and hit on women in a nice bar without looking sloppy. A suit where it would look alright if i pair the jacket with a tshirt and jeans (It seems to me that some suits can't really pull off that look). The labels im considering at the moment are castangia, attolini, barbera, and borelli. They look pretty nice but I have no clue about the styling and drape becasue i havent tried on any of those labels. If you guys have any input on labels and such, feel free to give some advice. i need it.
