User Experience In Dressing – Part 1

Blogpost Ads 21


It’s real. There is a connection between dressing and user experience. And if you’re an account man, you know where this post is going.

First of all. Dressing as a representative of your company is part of user experience. And I’ve seen a lot of people didn’t pay attention to it. Allow me to explain several sartorial benefits related to dressing. Appropriately.

If you watch AMC’s Mad Men, you’ll notice that almost everybody this series wears a suit. It is like an unwritten dresscode at the office. If you think about it, wearing an appropriate suit gives an impression of a real business dealing with your client (or prospective client).

Imagine you’re dealing and negotiating a big project with your client, but you’re only wearing a t-shirt and short. How does it feel? Inappropriate.

As an agency representative, wearing a suit gives you a boost of confidence. And you can’t act like a fool if you’re wearing a suit, especially in front of your client. More importantly, it gives your client a feeling of assurance, which is rarely felt during the early stage of meeting.

Adding a tie into your suit attire adds a whole new experience. A tie completes your look, and further boost your confidence. This is one of the main reason why almost every bank or hotel require their male employee’s to wear a tie at work, especially if their job is related to customer service.

A tie helps you to maintain your posture and it actually enhance your voice tone to sound sincere and confident. And simply tying your tie—creating a clean knot with a dimple feels totally different than a tie without dimple.

Simply try it!

To be continued to Part 2. Stay tuned next week.
