The Suit
The pinstripes of the jacket act as arrows drawing the eyes upward towards your head. This helps audiences better focus on you while presenting to small intimate groups. The pinstripes also exude an intimidating aura, giving your words more weight and power. Why else would this be the go to look for 1920’s mobsters?

Shirt
The checked shirt acts as your lion’s mane, amplifying your voice and your face. This pattern holds its form through creases and folds, giving a seamless look even when viewed from odd angles. The pattern creates the optical illusion that your attention is being focused on all audience members, even if you are not facing directly at them.
