Uniting the world of craftsmanship and refined tailoring with a rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic, John Varvatos has been part of the American design scene since 2000. Over the past 13 years, the brand has come to represent an entire lifestyle, including tailored clothing and accessories as well as edgier lines like John Varvatos Star U.S.A. and Converse by John Varvatos.
What else has this tough-guy label accomplished? Oh, you know, just multiple design awards from the CFDA and GQ Magazine…
7AM: Choose a room-commanding power suit (just follow GQ’stips for each body type) and remember to add accessories. Cuff links and accent socks go a long way.
8AM: Grab a cup of coffee and get to the office early to crush it.
9:30AM: Client meetings all morning. Although this is run-of-the-mill, don’t forget to brush up on your meeting skills to keep things running smoothly.
12PM: Conduct a meeting with senior management. Just don’t forget the fundamentals of business.
1PM: Lunch with the guys. Get away from the office for a quick bite, a walk, anything to help you clear your mind for an hour or so. Studies show that leaving your cube helps you think outside the box.
2PM: Take a client call and work on proposals and paperwork. This time also usually includes tweeting. That’s right – businessmen tweet, too.
6PM: Happy hour with coworkers and dinner on the town. Swap your office attire for a more casual button-down before heading out (yes, this requires planning ahead). Go for something with a fun, printed cuff to stand out from the sea of suits.
