Mentioning the unmentionables

    show thru

  • Color? Plain-style, non-patterned in a neutral
    color. Take an extra pair in case.

25
Shoes and accessories
  • Wear low heeled pumps in a neutral color that
    matches your accessories
  • Be sure they are clean and polished

  • If you wear a belt or carry a purse or briefcase
    (one, not both) be sure they are the same color,
    polished and conservative

32
What to wear for men
  • Suit
  • Fit
  • Shirt
  • Accessories, socks, shoes

33
SuitObjective
  • ConservativeTwo-piece two- buttoned, vented,
    single breasted business suit, 100 Worsted Wool,
    fully lined coat, half lined trousers in navy
    blue or charcoal gray (pinstripe, muted plaid,
    solid or herringbone)

34
SuitObjective
  • Semi-ConservativeSame as conservative plus three
    or four button suit in navy, charcoal, earth
    tones or possibly even black. Additional options
    are textured fabrics in lighter to medium tones,
    as well as non-vented jackets. The more creative
    your work environment the more creative you
    clothing options.

35
Jacket Fit
  • Jacket should lie smoothly over your shoulders
    and across your back
  • Shoulders cut too wide diminish the head.
  • Shoulders cut too narrow make the head appear
    larger than it is.
  • The jacket's shoulders frame the head--A balanced
    presentation.
  • Collar should follow neck silhouette closelyno
    gaping
  • Jacket length should cover your entire seat and
    should be half the distance from the collar seam
    to the floor. Jacket hem should line up with the
    thumb knuckle.
  • Sleeves should cover the break of the wrist,
    allowing ¼ to ½ inch of shirt cuff to show

36
Hollywood knows about sleeves length
  • You should too.

37
Trouser fit
  • The waist of your trousers should be just at or
    slightly below your navel and should fit snugly
    without feeling tight. This puts the crotch of
    the pants at the crotch of the wearer, which
    allows for movement without stressing the pants.
  • Trousers should fit smoothly across the top of
    the buttocks, then follow the curve about halfway
    down, then fall straight down. When pants follow
    the curve all the way down, we call them jeans!
  • Hems may be either straight or cuffedif cuffed,
    make sure they are proportional to the wearers
    height.

38
Shirt
  • White is best. When in doubt wear white.
  • 100 percent cotton is preferred
  • Point, button tab, or spread collars best
  • Point collar for fuller faces
  • Spread collar for narrower faces
  • Collar should show ½ inch above jacket collar at
    nape of neck
  • Cuff should show ¼ to ½ inch below sleeve.
    Sleeve must have enough length for the arm to
    bend without pulling on the cuff. Cuff must fit
    snugly so additional sleeve length will not fall
    over the hand.
  • Very clean and well pressed
  • Shirt should fit well and have an index finger of
    breathing room at the collar.
