Nothing is more unnerving than walking into a job interview. When it comes to making a solid first and lasting impression, your visual resume is as important as the one printed on that fancy ivory paper.

One of the most popular male fashion questions we are asked during executive image seminars and private coaching sessions we conduct revolves around who should (and shouldn’t!) wear skinny suiting.
