Checked grey business suit

Greetings BusiChic,

My posts this week are coming to you from a day I had in Sydney before I attended the Voices of 2013 conference.

I spotted Nick who works in IT when I popped into a hairdresser on Crown street to get a pre-conference blow-dry. Nick sports a stylish light grey checked suit that I find tend to be more common in Sydney than in Melbourne. What do you think?

While it’s perfectly ok (and perhaps even more of the norm) to have a cufflink stand out from a suit, I like how the pattern in Nick’s cufflinks reference the check in his suit.

In Nick’s words:

I was wearing a Crane Brothers Suit, who are bespoke tailors from NZ. Nick tells me that they have just opened a boutique in Sydney. I was also wearing Salvatore Ferragamo shoes…. I love these shoes.
My favourite brands would have to be Crane Brothers, Salvatore Ferragamo, Herringbone do some great cufflinks and I’m a big fan of Hermes ties. Calibre do some great business/casual stuff too.
My favourite quote is below by Joe Frazier, a well known boxer who fought Muhammad Ali on many occasions.
“You can map out a fight plan or a life plan, but when the action starts, it may not go the way you planned, and you’re down to your reflexes – that means your [preparation:]. That’s where your roadwork shows. If you cheated on that in the dark of the morning, well, you’re going to get found out now, under the bright lights.”
― Joe Frazier

What a powerful quote, thank you Nick! 

Hope that you have a great week, BusiChic!
