Things to Consider When Choosing a Tailored Suit

Things to Consider When Choosing a Tailored Suit

Every man needs a suit, and if you’re a businessman, then you need a tailored suit. However, not every man knows how to choose the right suit and ends up wasting money on one which doesn’t look right. I believe when shopping for the right suit, you need to consider a few very important things. Knowing what to look for will take you a long way. I decided to do some research and came up with a list of factors which will help you choose a well-designed tailored suit. We’ll be exploring –

  • General knowledge
  • Measurements
  • Adapt to changing trends
  • Comfort always
  • Listen to your tailor

General Knowledge

That’s right! Nowadays, there are so many magazines on fashion that you should read through. Not only are you getting a great sense of style from them, but they provide advice. You’ll learn about changing trends, and what matters when choosing the right suit. You’ll gain knowledge on the best stores to visit and see people dressed in various combinations. Pay close attention to the pictures in the magazine because some may hit a cord with you, and you can put the same color combination together.

Measurements Matter

I know people who refuse to be measured each time they go in to purchase a suit. Remember, it doesn’t take long for your body to shift sizes so always get your measurements done when it’s time to buy. You’ll be surprised what you learn about yourself when getting measured. I remember there was a 1-month gap between purchases for me, and I had jumped up a size which completely shocked me.

Getting measured when getting custom tailored suits made for yourself is even more important because suits only look amazingly good when everything is perfectly fitted.

Changing Trends

Old timers find it very hard to shift styles because they are so used to the dark suit, light shirt mentality. However, we are in a time where designers are pushing the envelope in terms of material, colors, and fit. Try something new the next time you go shopping for a tailored suit. Trying different things also says a lot about your personally. It can help with the next deal you try to close. One method I use to find how trends are changing is by skimming online and visiting different sites. It’s a great way to view popular items. Some sites offer the ability for you to order a test suit for measurement verification. Here’s a site showing you how to test your custom tailored suits.

It’s important not to go completely out of your comfort zone but start by choosing different colors and dress shirt designs.

Comfort Always

Depending on the type of work you’re in, you’ll either be moving around a lot or you’ll completely stagnant at your desk. However, this shouldn’t matter because you always need to feel comfortable in your suit especially when you wear them every day. Choose a suit which fits just right and doesn’t make you feel congested. The more uncomfortable you are, the more it will affect your work going forward.

Listen to your Tailor

The one reason I love my tailor is because they have been around for years and dealt with hundreds of customers. This means they’ve sold custom suits to different preferences, body sizes, and people with limited budgets. If you don’t listen to the creative criticism from your tailor, you should, because they know what looks good on you. They know your personality and what represents your vision (if you have one).

Final Thoughts

The fashion industry changes quickly and your style should change with it. Custom suits represent your personality and show a different level of class not found in ordinary jeans. The next time you are shopping for a tailored suit, use the tips above to ensure you find one that’s perfect for you. This means finding one which is comfortable, trendy, fits perfectly and represents you.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
