For me, that’s one of the great indulgences in life: a hand-tailored suit and a great pair of handmade shoes.

Hey guys! I’m Jules, the new blogger here at La Vida Dor. I love suits, and I’m really excited to be a part of this project. Tailors for men are very common, but it’s harder for a woman to find a suit that looks professional and fits her body. We’re here to change that.
I’ll be back on Thursdays.
Gwyneth Paltrow, among other celebrities, are sexualizing the business suit.
What does this say about women’s chance in a professional setting?
Can a suit be feminine and flattering without being sexualized?

The use of texture and material here is really quite exceptional. It’s not every day wearable, but that look of elegance and the appeal and sophistication is most definitely something every lady probably wants out of her suiting experience. The air of superiority that comes with suiting up shouldn’t be MECE [mutually exclusive, collectively exhaustive] for men – we want it and we can own it.

Why? Not only because he usually wears a hoodie or whatever his comfort choice for the day happens to be. It’s also because this one site had so much criticism to give Mark for his overall look. From the sizing of the jacket to the lack of .5 in cuffs and even that it’s an all-black suit, there was a lot to be said from the article. To the untrained eye, one would just be relieved that he didn’t greet South Korean President Park in a hoodie. But to the trained eye, he looks like a young CEO who hasn’t “friended a talented tailor,” in the words of the writer.
Meanwhile, Park herself sports a pastel yellow, 3/4 sleeve suit. What are our thoughts on that? Would a young, female CEO be allowed to wear something like that? Probably not. But because she’s older and well-respected, we have to accept it.
