As mentioned in a previous post, it is of little importance how much money you spend on a suit if it doesn’t fit you. I cannot stress this enough. I see so many men walking the streets of Cape Town wearing store-bought suits which simply do not fit them. It’s almost laughable and defeats the purpose of wearing the suit completely. Whilst getting a suit made for yourself may seem daunting, it is a process which we all need to undertake at some stage and the more you know about the do’s and don’t’s, the easier the process will seem. Following on from the previous post mentioned above, here are 5 more tips to ensure that you get the best tailored suit possible.
It is of little importance how much money you spend on your suit or if it is made of the finest materials. If it doesn’t fit you, it won’t look good. Let me repeat that: If it doesn’t fit you, it won’t look good. This is simply the fact of the matter. As it is with most clothing, fit is key, and when it comes to tailoring a suit, fit will quite simply make or break the suit. GEtting a suit tailored can seem like a daunting task what with the almost endless number of option and styles to choose from. Where do you start? Here are 5 tips which should get you moving in the right direction.
I talk a lot about confidence. I believe in it and I believe that it is the backbone of any strong man. My goal at The Noblest Rogue is to help you feel better about yourself and to raise you up. This, in turn, will see you grow as a man and the better you feel about yourself, the more confident you will become. The only downside to confidence is that when you have it, other people can perceive this personal positivity as arrogance. Which is a big no-no in my books! There is nothing more sickening than an arrogant man. Confidence and arrogance are polar opposites and it is important that we men understand the difference.
The tips I’ve picked up from the chaps at Goldman Sachs have been priceless. Most of them are common knowledge and adding them to the various volumes of A Guide To Being A Man, simply affirms their truth. At the end of the day, we as men want to walk this world with our heads held high comfortable in the knowledge that we are true to ourselves and that which we believe in. This confidence is found through a deep belief in our actions. An understanding that what we do – when broken down – is true to ourselves. Should this belief waver, we would find ourselves questioning our actions which would result in doubt creeping into our psyche which would compound and lead to a lack of confidence. This is a dark place to be for any man and we should strive to never scoop to those depths. Strive to be more like the man you were made to be. Everyday. Strive!
