Since moving to Hong Kong, I’ve been required to suit up for work on occasions. I didn’t want to splurge on expensive wool suits just yet, so I picked up a couple from good old Zara. When it comes to suiting, I feel that it’s possible to fake an expensive look by choosing a suit that’s tailored correctly. Blazers from Zara always fit me perfectly, but the pants are hit and miss. For this pinstripe suit I’m wearing here I had to get the pants hemmed and slimmed. After the alterations I feel like a million bucks when I’m in this suit, even though it certainly didn’t cost that much at all.
I got this Ted Baker briefcase in London a over two years ago, and to this date it’s still one of my most reliable business bags.
