Wearing suits has always been the domain of a certain class of the society, precisely the rich or those considered to be top professionals in major industries. The suit has always remained a mark of professionalism as well as gentlemanship in the corporate world and is widely associated with the formal sector. For way back, it has remained the mark of the higher-up the leader class. If you were to walk into someone’s office and find an officer behind the desk in casual wear, you would be tempted to inquire about the whereabouts of the officeholder. This is because the whole former world has always believed in wearing a suit as a mark of professionalism as well as gentlemanship.
Being a uniform of the high class, they have remained expensive and unaffordable to ordinary people whose income is below average, as well as those in the informal sector. Presidents, a huge click of world leaders and corporate staff have borne the mark of this uniform for a long while. It is a culture with a long history, having appeared for the first time in the west in the 19th century before spreading worldwide. Wearing a suit is considered an honorable thing by most cultures and in some cases enforced by a company or internal laws. For instance, for years it has been unlawful in several countries to report to work without a suit. You are regarded as disciplined when wearing a suit with a tie. Suit wear goes together with a tie, or you are not formally dressed.
The reason why they are suitably used widely is in the looks that a suit gives. It provides immaculate looks that catch the attention of those who interact with you. Men who wear such outfits are easily recognizable and accorded due respect as a result. This could just be a cultural belief that men who are dressed in them are respectable. Newscasters can’t face the camera without decent attire, mostly an edge-cutting suit. And so are the public figures, until recently, when a new trend seemed to be emerging. Truthfully, clothing companies have made fortunes from selling such outfits as they have sold millions per year.
Suits are losing their charm as men now turn to more casual wear, away from their exquisite appearance. This is because of the invasion by those who are considered unfit to wear them. Informal workers, farmers, priests and even pastors now wear suits. Everyone now wears them, that being the case, the high class is presently shying away from them by reverting to casual wear. It can be blamed partly on the feeling of pride by the moneyed who dislike competition from their juniors. Even though it is all about what you like, whether you can afford it or simply personal choice, the culture of superiority still rears its ugly head.
It has led to these classes reaching for each other’s throats, showing their enormous ability to order the best from the best companies. Since it is no longer possible to differentiate between what can be considered the most expensive suit, casual attire, made from expensive materials are now gaining popularity. They are reaching for outfits that ordinary people cannot afford. Others have joined the fray simply because of social influence, to assert themselves among their peers. Most men get swayed by what others do, which they join without finding out why they do so. Suits are becoming occasional outfits meant for weddings or other public appearances. Why informal wear is becoming so popular is a shocker, but it has succeeded in overturning the other culture.
You may find that attire seems to portray how you think, particularly as the majority study what is trending and try to copy. It wouldn’t be shocking to find a head of state addressing the public wearing a flowered shirt, untucked and no coat on. Therefore, suit-wearing is already being phased out in the same way electronics do, apparently to embrace a new one. Soon there will be another dressing code in the air since human beings cannot fail to evolve. Today one product seems good and tomorrow it will be phased out without a trace. Man is a revolutionist both politically and socially, as a result, he can never stay put in a condition for long, or he will bolt out. He is also proud, unable to control his lust for better things, so he will continue to discover new things.
