Yeah dude it does shirts really well. Takes less than a minute and my collars stay straight all day.  Better than the dry cleaners.

Yeah don't get me wrong...I gladly pay something like $1.20 for my shirts...don't know cuz wife makes the drycleaning runs. I have 7 suits so I switch them out throughout the week. Every two weeks I usually spend about an hour or so steaming them and hitting my two pairs of shoes with the paste and horse hair.

I have to buy suit separates also. I wear a 46L coat and have a 36" waist. Off the rack 46L suits come with trousers so large they can't be tailored down. My go-to suits are charcoal grey, blue plaid, olive plaid, blue stripe, and charcoal stripe. Never been a fan of solids.

Nordstrom Rack or Saks off 5th for suits. Decent quality, great prices. You just need to tailor them and your clients won't know the difference between yours and a bespoke Saville row suit.

But I have a nice grey sportcoat. 

I need to go shopping again though, since I've slimmed up some from more running than weight training.

 
Do you wear ties & jacket, or just pretty casual?
 
Not to open this Pandora's Box again, but now that I am "unaffiliated", I am re-assessing my choice of clothing.  I don't have a lot of nice business casual clothes, since I have been wearing suits for 20 years.  If I decide to start going that route, I am going to need to upgrade. 


I'll wear a nice shirt.  My wife got me back into ties, so occasionally I'll put on a tie with a white shirt.  Winter months, I wear a lot of cashmere sweaters. 

I almost exclusively wear jeans.  Usually tailored.
 
That would be nice.  Is that type of dress typical in your area, or do you not meet with clients that frequently?  It's tough to get away with that up here on a regular basis.  Although I would love to do it.  But unfortunately, my competition is basically the wirehouses (all suits), the banks (all suits), and some larger RIA firms (all suits).  We do have a couple of small solo RIA's in my area, and none of them wear suits - very casual. 


No, I'm the only guy who shows up at the RIA stuff in jeans.  But you know, I'm more uncomfortable in suits.  I win business when I wear my jeans.  I don't do so well in suits. 

If you aren't comfortable, you won't win business.


^This.  Wear what makes you feel confident.  I have a few basic suits, black, navy, and grey that I've owned for years but I only throw a suit on for a new client prospect.  Most of my meetings I'm wearing a nice sport coat with a button down.  I try and add to my collection every 6 months or so just to freshen up my look.
The biggest producer I know, wears nice jeans, button down, with a sport coat as his mentality is what you see is what you get.  Then again, he works very hard and is a prospecting machine.  Clothing choice is no substitute for hard work.
The game is out there. Either play or get played.

My brother recently hired a "stylist" (and you think this thread is gay).  What he was told is that the most important is to be comfortable.  Second was that casual business is preferred in most situations, unless it is a high power meeting.  This is how it was broken down:

Office days - jeans with nice boots/shoes, a button-down and a sport jacket (or even suit jacket).  

Client meetings - suit, but no tie

High power business meeting (dealing with a large company and their executives) - suit and tie

My brother who does business contract law, so I thought it could be applicable to our business as well.  Probably can't get away with that if you are an employee though.

I have avoided starting a new thread on this subject, however now that we are back to being gay together, I can't recommend Tommy John boxer briefs enough. They fucking fit like a glove and are comfortable as hell. They are expensive at $31 each, but I think they are worth it, and you think I'm fucking crazy, but they make you feel great.

They are advertising like crazy, so you've seen the ads out there.
