Con • fi • dence is a feeling of self-assurance arising from one's appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities. Powerful eh!
You might be thinking “what does confidence have to with clothes?” An article once described one’s garments as an “armor”. An armor is designed to shield and protect the bearer from elements that might cause damage. In this case our clothes, whether it’s a 3-piece bespoke suit, a crisp white shirt, your fav double strap monk shoes, a perfectly fluffed pocket-square, or a bow-tie that makes you stand out of a crowd of hundreds, our clothes are our first line of defense. Super-Man has his cape, Bat-Man has his chest piece, Iron Man has his “Suit”…it’s what they use as their identifying mark, it’s what they use to remind themselves they aren’t like everybody else.
We can apply that thinking to our dressing. When you go for an interview; it’s not the handshake, it’s not the paper your resume is printed on, it’s not the fact you showed up early…it’s that first impression you leave when you get that head-to-toe look – your armor outfit is your first line of defense. Develop your style, step boldly, let your confidence do the talking and watch doors get flung wide open for you.
Happy Suiting Up!
