Okay – let’s level here. A well-tailored suit will not be the only thing that gets you the job, but looking the part is important. In fact, experts say that we cement our first impressions within the first seven seconds of meeting someone. That’s seven seconds for them to notice scuffed shoes, a crumpled shirt, or a tie that’s two centimetres too thin, which makes your job of convincing them you’re a capable, initiative-taking, hard-working potential employee that much harder.

So, to help make the road to sartorial success in your next job interview, we’ve put together a simple, four point checklist to make those first seven seconds yours.
