Shoes Shoes Shoes (dressing for the interview) part. 2

     While we all know that suits and their quality are of utmost importance to look great in the business world, but to complete the look you must always have a great pair of shoes. What companies make exceptional fine shoes? Well, here are a few brands

    Shoes by John Lobb, starting at around ($1,100) or ($1,500) for their nicer shoes. From selecting the leather to placing the completed shoe in it's signature yellow box, each pair of John Lobb's is subjected to 190 individual steps during the manufacturing process. 

     Shoes by Salvatore Ferragamo, starting at at around ($300- $4,000). Salvatore Ferragamo dedicated his life to the search for a secret: The shoe that fits well. When he began studying the human anatomy in the united states he found his first clue to the problem, in the distribution of the body's weight over the joint's of the foot. "I discovered- he wrote- that the weight of our bodies when we are standing erect drops straight down on the arch of the foot. He constructed his revolutionary Lasts, which supporting the arch, make's the foot act like a pendulum. 

   Shoes by Berluti, stating at ($700 to upwards of $2,000). Creating a pair of these shoes is a process that encompasses 250 different steps. However, producing a pair of these shoes is a score played with four hands: it carries the craftsman's imprint and the personality of the customer who ordered them. 

The Suit Makes The Man (Dressing for the Interview) part1


When dressing for an interview the suit you wear says more about your personality then you could possibly imagine and that's why you must always wear your best suit.

 Well you may ask whats the best suit companies?

  That's the reason why I decided to do a segment on this completely. Most people believe that D&G and Hugo Boss make the best suits and that you should pay their ridiculous prices for them, but I'm here to tell you that they are just an over priced name. Instead of leading you toward overpriced garbage I'd like to introduce you to six companies that will impress any boss.

Suit's by Brioni starting at ($1,000 to $6,000). These suits are wider in the waist and shoulders, and if you have an obsession with oo7 your in luck because these are the suits he wear's.

Suit's by Canali, from ($1,000). Arm holes and shoulder pads are all crafted right before they are sewn in. This gives the suit a nice sloping shoulder with mobile armholes for everyday use, making it a more comfortable suit to wear.

Suits by Brunello Cucinelli starting at ($1,200). This company actually has a series of body types to choose from when you purchase to tailor it to your body type.

Suits by Ascot Chang ($2,100). Made in Ermenegildo Zegna super 130s worsted wool. Full hand-stitched horsehair canvassing allows our suit to naturally mold to your body while maintaining its shape. Single breast model with lower besom flap pockets.

One of my favorite suit companies is called Isaia they start at around ($900) and they are superb. Isaia  men's suits are handcrafted in Italy, with an inimitable Italian flair for men's fashion. Tailored from the finest materials like superfine wool and luxurious silk suits embody refined, subtle styling.
