Guy Friday: Help Your Man Get A Job By Making Him Look Presentable
February 9, 2009
With 11.1 million people unemployed, it’s safe to say that making a positive, memorable impression during an interview is even more essential today. So we have five, recession-friendly (inexpensive) style tips to help your guy look more polished when he walks into the room to meet his future boss.
Black or brown shoes? The Nordstrom Reversible Leather Belt ($49.50) will allow him to match either pair. It’s two belts in one!
Speaking of shoes, use the Kiwi Shoe Shine Sponge ($4.75) if there’s no time for a proper polish.
Keep those collars crisp and in place with Macy’s Brass Collar Stays ($18).
If your guy is over 30, it’s time to have “the talk”—clip that nasty nose and ear hair with the Target Nose & Ear Trimmer ($10).
Interview lunch? Bring along some old school Binaca ($11) – it refreshes instantly and discreetly.
And one final suggestion, bring the suit and shirt to an experienced tailor to ensure they properly fit. Many off-the-rack clothes need to be tweaked here and there to make them look like they were made for him. Good luck!
