You can tell a lot about a man from his choice in suit. Not just the way it is tailored; not only the choice of cut, fabric or colour; not simply the way that just enough cuff sits on this shoes. It's the little adornments that make the suit. Attention to detail can be very expressive. A nice tie should be a given with a formal suit, but when it comes to pocket squares they can add style, personality and charisma.
