As a freelance writer dressing up basically means putting on pants, and that's only if I'm getting on Skype. However, it is important for any man to have a tailor on lock. If you are in a job where a tailored suit can give you a meaningful edge, this is a no-brainer. For those of you who work in a less rarefied space, remember the simple truth that it costs less to fix clothes than to buy new ones. Tailors can fix tears and take in pants after you lose that holiday weight. If the clothes really do make the man, then it pays to know the man who makes the clothes.
