When meeting someone for the first time most often take seconds to evaluate and form an opinion. We size them up wondering if they are intelligent, arrogant, or likeable? Naturally, we are making assumptions about our future encounter with this person we’ve just met and judging whether it will be positive or negative experience.
Know your limitations, work to overcome them
Saye Sathiyakumar, Managing Partner at Power Tech Solutions, leaves no stone unturned when it comes to first impressions. With over 7 years of experience in the recruitment and staffing world, he’s asked countless times what his approach is when making your first impressions for a client, interview, significant other, etc.
His advice? Make your personal style your own, invest in garments which make you feel confident, competent, dominant, optimistic and professional. With these in mind, you’ll be more likely to leave a lasting and memorable impression.
Saye also believes that too many people focus on following trends. While fashionable and on top of ‘what’s ho’, Saye focuses on combining eye catching outfits and elegance. As the saying goes, feeling comfortable is half of what makes someone look good.
The King & Bay Journey
When Saye first came to us, he had two simple goals: look good and feel good. Master Clothier, Sushant Vachhar worked with Saye to select fabrics and styles which amplified Saye’s magnetic personality and kept elegance in mind. Rather than a traditional white shirt on a grey suit, we opted to dress Saye in a black turtleneck as well, which allows him to be formal and casual in any setting.
Versatility being the name of the game, Saye’s King & Bay Custom [XYZ Fabric] suit, will be the perfect companion on those classy evening dinners, in important meetings, when meeting clientele and the adventurous weekend getaways – all while guaranteeing a good fit and memorable first impression.
