Dress to impress?

Get Shredded!
I talked to an IT guy the other day who is the same age as I am. He said he wore a suit to a tech job interview once and the interviewer told him after to NOT wear a suit to interviews. He said that most tech guys would be laughing at him behind his back for being too formal…which I see as “professional”. I asked him if the guy suggested he show up late for interviews too, so as to demonstrate his abilities as a new age slacker.
 
I don’t own a suit. I have very little need for one. But I have all of my non work clothes tailored. Shorts, chinos, dress shirts, polo shirts etc.
it makes a difference in your appearance.
It’s not expensive, be good to your local tailor/seamstress/dressmaker and they’ll be good to you
I went to
For you guys that knows how to dress and want to look good in a fitted suit, where do you shop? Do you tailor everything?

I’m 6’1 235-240lb, fairly lean, with 18” neck and 32” waist… so yeah, not the easiest to find clothes that fit…

@maxmuscle1 might know?
I went to Nordstrom’s and after about 15 minutes the guy was like, “you’re going to spend as much in tailoring as it would to just get a custom suit.”

Ended up going to IndoChino and did well there. They always have a sale you can capitalize on.

Not as thick as you, but 6’6” 260lbs I’m a tough fit for suiting.
 
I hate buying suits, or any clothes for that matter. Once they measure my neck they just sigh and start bringing out the big shirts and that chalk and a bunch of pins

It’s never cheap.

IndoChino seems good, I’ll check them out, thanks.

Btw @6’6 and 260lb, you’re a big boy, I bet it’s hard to find clothes that fits and looks good.

Pants are the worst. But dress clothes almost always need tailoring so it’s expected.

But a pair of jeans or a t-shirt? Options are limited.
 
Back in the 80s…maybe early 90s, I certainly couldn’t wear Levi 501s. Still can’t. But some dude turned me on to Silvertabs. There was only one version and they cost 3x what 501s cost. But at least we could wear jeans. Fast forward to the 2000s and my wife points out that Silvertab “baggy fit” looks somewhere between MC Hammer and hip hop idiots.
Those went to charity….lol.
Long pants are a hard find for big leg dudes.

I have short, wide feet (the foot equivalent of “…but it’s thick at the base”) and the left one has a big arthritic hump. If I find a pair of shoes that fit well enough, I buy 3-4 pairs.
Shoes, by far, are the hardest purchase for me. Thank goodness for flip flops. Ain’t going to be wearing them this winter in Washington though.
 
Wore my first state and liberty shirt today. Very nice!

I liked that I could just toss it in the dryer for a few and the wrinkles came right out. I haven't washed it yet.

I got an XL and by my tape measure, my neck is 17.5 inches. I had to wear a tie, and that collar was a little tight. The site says XL is for 17-18 inch neck. I might have to try XXL next time. But the rest -- the sleeves were a great length and it was awesome having my shoulders fit in a shirt without a tent around my waist!

Great, I’m happy you liked them.
 
Everyone's tastes are different, so it's quite difficult to surprise someone. However, I believe that choosing stylish clothes is a sure way to make an impression. Fashion allows us to express ourselves in a unique way, and thoughtfully selected clothes can say a lot about your understanding of a person's style. So, when in doubt, opt for a trendy and chic outfit - it's a versatile choice that often makes a lasting impression. I think this is the best way to surprise someone.

Also recently I found a good site where you can still buy such good clothes that will go and even for a gift. I hope you like this style and you can find something suitable for you. So I will leave this site Men's Knitwear here that you can use it.
