mens suits in the workplace

There was once a time when wearing a suit meant something. Getting dressed up was a proccess that took time and care. It was like putting on your suit of armour and getting ready to attack the day. Men truly made an effort and added some level of personalisation to their look.

Just take a look at the video below. This advert for Audi begins with the guy going through that alluring routine, and preparing himself for the day ahead.

This kind of attention to detail went out of the window with corporate day jobs.

No longer does it feel like we’re dressing ourselves, it feels more like we’re being told to wear certain clothing because it’s part of the working uniform.

You button up your shirt, put on your tie and on you go, wearing something that you’d never wear in your own time and are only wearing today because you were told to by your superior.

This is very much like what entrepreneurs face when they start to turn their passion into a business. Suddenly what they use to enioy feels more like work, and the enjoyment factor is removed. They then begin to despise their work.

 

The day job has done the same to the suit for men. When the weekend comes around, we can’t wait to remove the suit and wear something more casual, which is a real shame.

There was a time when men would wear dirty overalls all week, then really make an effort on the weekend with a formal suit that identified with them. It was an enjoyable process, rather than a chore.

Seeing people dress down on the weekend is a strange modern method that is becoming more and more common. Finding venues that only accept smart shoes and an outfit of note is becoming a rarer and rarer feature.

The problem has stemmed from wearing a suit because you have to, rather than wearing one becuase you want to!

 

Seperating Your Work Clothes

Most work suits are off the shelf. They’re made in bulk in a cookie cutter fashion and men all around the world show little to no adventure from Monday to Friday.

Your weekend suit or special occasion suit, should epitomize your mood. We can’t wait to get out of a suit because we associate this look with the working environement. Due to this, we’ve forgotten about the process and the amount of fun you can have when you pay attention to detail, make a real effort and customize your look to give yourself an identiity.

One man who’s recaptured this magic is UFC fighter Conor McGregor. Just take a look at some of his custom fitted and elaborate suits below.

Conor has made wearing the suit fun again. Which makes perfect sense. He’s wearing gym clothes all day, to Conor this is a nice change. The average man needs to understand how enjoyable wearing more formal outfits can be, when it’s away from the working enviroment.

You don’t need to be wearing that cookie cutter office worker look if you don’t want to. Find an old school tailor and make a real effort to find something that’s a million miles away from an every day suit.

It would be a real shame if men lost a piece of fashion culture that has defined us for centuries. We have to make the suit cool again, but that’s not going to happen when everyone is wearing off the shelf – cookie cutter suits, not because they want to, but because they feel as though they have to.
