Reflection: Anyone who has ever studied economics have certainly experienced that two films clearly influenced the idea of how to dress in the business world; American Psycho and Wall Street. Both of two incurable mental case with a penchant for the expensive clothes and themselves. When the sequel to Wall Street now reaches cinemas in spring, it is clear how these two films still haunt and motivate young businessmen feel completely lost in the way they dress.
A good friend who works at a medium-sized accounting firm talked about how a job interview came a completely newly graduated MBA dressed in double-breasted pin-striped suit, light blue shirt with white collar, cuff in gold, black Gucci loafers, and a bright red silk tie. Apart from a half skinny body and too large clothes a carbon copy of Gordon Gekko with all possible attributes. Did he get the job? No.
The story is hardly particularly unusual, but there are many who seem to suffer from a distorted image around the world business dress codes. And it is not Gordon Gekko who haunts it is most likely Patrick Bateman. And though the sequel to Wall Street, based on the trailer shows, feels much more modern in its style tremble myself for a possible raised yuppie style.
For what is a successful clothing for example, an accountant, a corporate lawyer or investors? Actually, a well-cut suit, sober shirt and a nice pair of shoes, all that is needed. It may sound ridiculously simple, which it is. But something happens to men (preferably young as read on Trade) self-image as soon as they take on the suit. Instead of perfecting the small details they adopt a pre-cooked yuppie ideals in the hope that radiate as much power as possible, where nothing is enough.
So before you put shoulder pads inside the shirt for proper power-look, scout, for example, in the Italian businessman Matteo Marzotto proving that feeling for the small details are of greed at all times.
