Clothes Make the Man

Yesterday, I read an article online about how the way you dress can affect your success. While this seems obvious (no yoga pants when meeting a high-powered client), I didn’t realize how much well-tailored clothing can enhance a career, especially for men. It seems that a suit isn’t just a suit, and men are judged far more on the clothes they wear in the workplace than we might think.

The article went on to talk about how certain men are either consciously or unconsciously labeled according to the stuff that they wear and this may affect whether or not they are given special projects, whether or not they are seen as capable and whether or not they get ahead in the office. I was just floored at all of this new information!

Now, while I have gone through my husband’s closet and wrestled away the old paisley ties, it is obvious to me that he needs some better things to wear. Good clothing choices can be an investment that affects so much at work in an office, but at the same time we do have a limited budget. At least when you buy well-made classic clothes, they are sure to last for a long time, and that is a good thing. Still, I have to trade off time spent doing some research and figuring out what we should purchase in order to get the most we can for our money.

As I look around, I’ll be happy to share with you what I find, in case you are in the same situation.

One of the stores I was impressed with for men’s suits, shirts, ties, etc was Jos.A. Bank. There is a store at our local upscale mall, so we visited in person. Then I sat down at the computer to look for coupons and ask about discounts. Right now they are having a stock up sale and offering free shipping when you purchase online (great timing). The deal expires on the 16th.

You can reach the sale through this link: Jos. A Bank’s Stock Up Sale.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
