When you work in a big audit bureau, you want your well-groomed appearance to express authority and professionalism. In order to achieve that, first rule is to feel comfortable in your clothes, something that made to measure guarantees.
The fabric of your business suit should be focused on two main colors: dark gray and navy blue. Black is mainly reserved for formal occasions and does not look good in combination with pale complexion nor fair hair. Opt for pure wool in super 130’s or 140’s like “Four Seasons” from Loro Piana or “Royal Mile” from Holland & Sherry. In summer, you can choose a lighter cloth proposed by Italian drapers as “Dinamico” from Carnet or “Wish Tropical” from Loro Piana. In winter, a warm flannel will be a nice option.

As for the jacket (always 2 buttons), keep it simple and opt for notched lapels and 2 slits on the back. Your individual style can be expressed in colorful lining and buttonholes – discreet but meaningful details. Those, who are looking for more fashionable solutions, can order the slim trousers.
Shirts should be either plain or in very delicate patterns so as not to divert attention from your face. Colors such as white, sky blue or light pink will work best, but nothing prevents you from wearing a navy checked shirt on casual Friday.
As for accessories, they should remain classic in order to complete your outfit, rather than draw too much attention. You can discard a pocket square, but a tie is mandatory, if you want to look professional.
