As high-level consultants being sharply dressed is a very important thing. It is also important to their employees on a personal level, who all love to suit up! We spoke with the managers at Odyssey to get an insight into their tailoring experience.
1) As financial advisers, how important is it to dress in a nice tailored suit?
Dressing well, and wearing a tailored suit, has two main benefits for consultants in our industry: Firstly, of course, is the impression that it can create on a client, that you are professional enough to earn their trust and handle their money. Also, having a well-fitting suit is important as we are always on the move, thus comfort and functionality are vital to us.
2) Can you tell us how you feel when you are being fitted with a made-to-measure suit? How do you like the process of getting measured and choosing new fabrics?
I always feel extremely excited when I visit the tailors’ and really enjoy selecting the different fabrics, with the professional help and service of the staff.
3) What is the most important thing for you when deciding on a new suit?
The most important thing is the fit because any tailor can use expensive fabrics, but the fit itself is based on a tailor’s skill.
