A Graduation Gift With A Difference Before Your Son Enters The Working World

A Graduation Gift With A Difference Before Your Son Enters The Working World

Mark Twain once said "Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society," and with the end of the school year rapidly approaching, now is the perfect time to purchase the ultimate graduation gift for your son. Once school is over, your son will be entering the workforce, and one way you can make sure he does influence society is to buy him the best suit available that he can wear to interviews. A custom made suit is the best you can get, and these are two reasons why.

The Perfect Fit

Whether your son is a tall basketball player, or someone who has yet to reach his height potential, buying a suit off-the-rack means you are buying something that is designed for the "average" male. But, when you want your child to command respect the moment he walks into a room, you need a suit that speaks "exceptional" instead. The main reason why many men chose to wear custom made or bespoke suits is that they are the perfect fit.

Your son will attend a fitting for his suit at a tailor whom you have chosen, and they will take the chest, waist, and leg measurements of your child. Once they have these, your child can head off while they put together a rough fitting suit based on these measurements. A second fitting will then follow; where the suit is altered to the point it fits your child perfectly.

This means when your son enters the interview room, he will do so wearing a suit that fits him well, that isn't wrinkled around the ankles, and which isn't too baggy in the rear. Instead, he will be wearing a suit that is almost a second skin to him, and this will give him confidence during the interview process.

The Perfect Design

Suits come in different designs, and your tailor will know how to accentuate, or detract, from any body imperfections your son has. Not only does a suit with a thin, vertical pinstripe look smart, but it also makes your son look taller.

The end of school coincides with the Australian summer, so you can choose a suit made of a breathable fabric such as linen or cotton, so that he does not overheat while doing the interview rounds. The choice of suit fabric, design, and colour can be completely tailored to suit your son's needs, rather than having to make do with a suit that you found already made up at the store.

Buying a suit as a graduation gift for your son could give him the edge he needs to beat the competition when he applies for his first job after school ends. A custom made suit will give him confidence to walk into the room and sell himself, and that is one of the greatest gifts any parent can give their child.
