At times maybe out of laziness or just plain ol’ choice, men tend to wear sleeveless underwear beneath their shirts. The only thing wrong with these? They look distasteful, are most often visible through the shirt and can leave sweat/Deodorant stains on your shirt. If these undershirts are making your expensive cotton shirts cheap, then are they even worth it? Our only advice would be to throw these out and buy new ones.

A man who can’t keep himself clean and maintained is not worth spending 5 minutes on. We are only putting your boss’s thoughts into words. Creased clothing, be it shirt, trousers, or blazer can distract your audience away from your presentation to your shabby dressing style. Our advice would be to to get your clothes properly laundered and ironed before every meeting.

It is one of the common mistakes some men end up committing. Too many colors is not considered formal, but it shifts you to a casual business style. Casual, a word we are sure you don’t wish to be associated with you when you’re going to your next meeting. Our advice would be to match the color of your leather belt and leather shoes. Black with black, Brown with brown.

 

Inappropriate Socks

There are times to be fun and childlike but your sales meeting is not that time. For you, bright socks with patterns can be your viva la revolución to self expression but for others it’s just an immature move. Our advice would be to stick to black or grey socks for the big meeting.

 

Wrong shoes

Like we said, loud prints and patterns are not the look you want to carry to your meeting. Leather shoes like Derby’s and Oxford’s should be your prime choice for formal wear. One other thing that can divert your boss’ attention is dirty shoes. Our advice would be to wear appropriate shoes and give them a shine before you leave.
