Suits with Stretch & Recovery Technology: The Jetsetter

As someone who enjoys dressing up for work on a daily basis, it can be challenging to find a basic ‘starter set’ of clothing. Personally, as I described in the introduction post for this blog, I spent an incredible amount of time researching and planning exactly what I wanted and how to build my wardrobe. I understand, most people don’t want to take the necessary time to do all of the research, they just want clothes that fit right and make them look smart. While my experience with Bonobos is limited to their pants, they are a great company to utilize for building your basic start set of pieces for your wardrobe. Today, we’re going to examine what Bonobos is calling their ‘ideal first suit’ for those just getting their wardrobe and fashion started called The Jetsetter.

Bonobos: Upgrade Your Wardrobe

One of the first things I discovered and learned about when I wanted to dress better was about the concept of fit. I knew about the use of a tailor and if I ever made gobs of money I could afford to get all of my clothing custom made to fit my slightly awkward proportions. When I was younger, my Mother purchased all of my clothes for me and then when I transitioned to making my own clothing purchases I was simply looking for specific clothing pieces and determining my purchase behavior based on how the item looked and how cheap I could get them. It wasn’t until I discovered Antonio Centeno that I started to understand how important the fit of my clothing was on my overall appearance. I can remember the piles of clothing that my sister and I took to Goodwill when I made the vow never to ware a poorly fitted clothing item again. I didn’t want my wardrobe to tempt me, I wanted to feel good about every piece I wore every single day. My pants were one of the first things I needed to change. I’d always been an oversized Dockers supporter until I discovered Bonobos. Their mission: ‘To create men’s pants that look and feel great for a wide variety of men.’ Learn why Bonobos is the exclusive brand that I use to purchase all of my pants.
