…and When to Wear Them

Not everyone needs to wear a suit, nor does everyone need one. That said, there are probably plenty of times a male entrep will have to attend an event that does merit one.

If you feel that you actually need a business suit for something, but you feel you don’t know the first thing about them, Reddit user /u/stRafaello created this handy guide based on recommendations by /u/rootb33r.

Suit and Shoe Guide

This guide is just that — a guide. This isn’t a rulebook, and only makes sense in a general Anglo-American/Western European context. If you’ve got more avant-garde tastes or are going for a more eccentric look, you’re probably better off looking elsewhere.

For the rest of us non-suit wearing types though, this is an excellent starting point for looking like a million bucks. Dress for the job you want, and all that.
