One of our favorite TV Shows is back,“Suits” will air TOMORROW and we couldn’t be more excited! Just watching the show makes us want to get our hands on one of those Harvey Specter suits. When looking at all the male characters’ flawless tailored suits, it’s obvious the show preaches the idea of dressing for success, simply because“You never get a second chance to make a first impression” - Will Rogers. Here are our ideas how to dress like a boss like Harvey and as dapper as Mike.
Let Your Suit Speak the Language of Success: Your clothes communicate a message to the rest of the world. A writer wouldn’t post a message to the readers without considering the language and grammar (among many other things): think the same with your suit. Consider each element of your suit carefully, as each element put together creates “the sentence”, the message, you want to convey with your suit. Consider everything from the fabric of your suit to the number of buttons on the sleeve.
What Does Your Suit Say About You? You can’t forget about the details! Though both Harvey and Mike are wearing well-tailored suits, the details of the suits convey two very different messages. Mike wears more often than not slimmer, a bit more understated tailored suits. Harvey, on the other hand, dresses like a boss. Truly. He’s in the top league and his power suits clearly convey his status and message. The details in his suit are crucial: 3-piece tailored suit, spread collar shirts and windsor knotted ties. This contrast between Harvey and Mike shows how a suit, and details, can effectively convey different messages of power.
Again, so much of your message is in the details! Choose them wisely. Know the difference of what you’re communicating; if you add a pocket square, if you opt for thick pinstripes, or peak lapels, what different messages are you sending to the audience? To some, the details may not be a big thing. But to those who pay attention, to those who know the difference, the details are everything.
Here’s how to get the power suit of Harvey:
Choose a tailored 3-piece suit (with vest) such as the ones below:
- Add accessories for a stronger look:
Bold tie with a larger knot - recommend a windsor knot
Have a tailored shirt with spread collars and french cuffs
Enjoy the show!
