Going out for cocktails after work? Here’s what you should know about the dress etiquette to follow:
When you know the day is going to be long, and there’s a relaxing get-together waiting for you after endless meetings and intense dealings with clients, prep your self up in the morning by making some clever choices:
· Your shoes must be extra comfortable but still look ready for business. A nice wing tip or brogue pair with rubber soles in dark brown can be life savers when you are up and standing for more than ten hours straight.
· Choose a suit that will easily adjust to different conditions, be it the inside of an office building, a walk to a nearby meeting or the warm environment of your favourite bar. A weave textured suit like this one by Hackett will certainly play the part.
· Pick a shirt that doesn’t crease easily. Remember, you’ll still want to look your best when you walk in the room to meet your friends, late at night.
· A busy day requires a masterful watch, so don’t sell yourself short, it’s about time you invested on a beautiful Omega timepiece.
· As for the drink of choice, for these first gloomy days of fall? Why not trust the old-time charm of the Mint Julep, originally a favourite of the gentlemen of the American South back in the early 1700’s? Of course you are going to give it a Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva twist and make it a Stylish Julep, your very own, contemporary masterpiece!
