Dress for your success

In job hunting, first impressions are critical and you are marketing an important product – yourself! The first thing that a potential employer sees when greeting you is your attire, so make every effort to have the proper dress for the type of job your are seeking. Dressing properly will not get you that job all by itself, but it will give you a competitive edge and a positive first impression. Should you be judged by what you wear? Perhaps not, but the reality is that we are all judged. Employers often use short cuts to save time, like a quick scan of the first paragraph in the cover letter or a glance of your accomplishments in the resume. With the job interview, it’s how you are dressed that sets the tone of the interview.

How should you dress? Dressing conservatively is always the safest route, but do some research of your prospective employer to determine the current environment with regards to attire. You can call the Human Resources department and simply ask or visit the company’s office to retrieve an application, etc. and observe the attire current employees are wearing.

We believe that you need to dress for your success. “Dress for Success” is the simple statement that the right clothing can make a difference in the way you feel about yourself and the way others perceive you. Your clothing will make a personal statement about you, so invest wisely and spend the time to become educated in what it takes to create the image you want to portray.

We offer the following additional tips:

  • You truly never get a second chance to make a good first impression.
  • Always project a strong self-image and start with a positive appearance.
  • Study your appearance as a prospective employer may.
  • It’s always better to be a little over dressed than under dressed.
  • Utilize the expertise of a quality, personal clothier.

What is bespoke clothing?

Have you ever been curious as to what is bespoke clothing? Perhaps you were searching for a suit when you came across this term. Clearly, at The Bespoke Edge, this is our bread and butter.

The word “bespoke” is derived from the verb to bespeak, to “speak for something”/to give order for it to be made. The term dates back to the 17th century, when tailors held the full lengths of cloth in their premises.  When a customer chose a length of material, it was said to have “been spoken for.” Hence a tailor who makes your clothes individually, to your specific personal requirements, is called “bespoke.” Using your pattern, the cloth is then cut and trimmed and a single tailor is given the task of sewing the parts of the garment together. This is unlike “made-to-measure,” which simply uses a basic, pre-existing template pattern, which is then adjusted to roughly your  individual measurements.

Using a gentleman’s imperfect body as inspiration, the tailor fashions a garment that caters to the owner’s strength. The experience promises to be among the most rewarding you will encounter. Men who try bespoke tailoring often become lifetime advocates, simply because no off the rack garment or modified stock garment can compare. We look forward to helping you with your clothing needs!
