An eye for detail, great timing, purposefulness - the qualities that mark the brilliant lawyer, the successful businessman, and the influential banker.
Qualities unfailingly reflected in the way all these gentlemen of substance attire themselves. They will not wear clothes unsuited to the occasion - to office, a cocktail, or an important conference.
They will take care to not appear too flashy, or too timid. And they simply won't wear garments that are uncomfortable.
The natural choice
Popular opinion holds that wool-blends are suitable only for winter. Nothing is more untrue, as discerning gentlemen will readily point out.
They "breathe" better than other fabrics, apart from being natural air-conditioners. Light-weight blends have open constructions, to enhance moisture transfer. So, you stay cool, even in the summer. They are naturally elastic, so your clothes retain shape.
Blends of wool with linen further enhance absorption. While wool and lycra mix beautifully to give drape and stretch - properties ideal for an active life-style.
And, as far as flattering your personality goes, no other fabric has their fall, feel and finish.
Degrees of refinement
The sleeve of a perfectly tailored suit is half an inch shorter than the shirt sleeve. Which in turn covers the wrist and touches the base of the thumb. There is an overlap of an inch between the bottom of the trouser-leg and the toe of your shoes.
Accessories after the fact.
A good watch is an investment: it shows your style. Silk ties add a dash of colour: today 's fashion is broad. Cuff-links cue luxury. Wear them on double cuffs. Formal belts are leather, around one-and-a-half inches.
The last word
And your choice of suiting? The world's finest: Raymond. Nothing else satisfies gentlemen who want to look their best. Every day.
