The Anatomy Of
The Power Suit
Today you need to project confidence, status, authority, and competence to the people you’re interacting with. Whether it's a job interview, a sales pitch, or a board meeting, conveying that you know what you're doing, that you're in charge, and that you don't need to prove yourself is a requirement.
True power dressing is about demonstrating mastery, not flaunting your wealth or peacocking. It’s showing that you know how to play by the rules, and bend them to your will. It’s knowledge of what’s appropriate: not dressing like a teenager when you’re the boss, or ‘for the job you want’ when you’re still on coffee duty. Because knowledge, after all, is power.
For a look that converys power & confidence as well as one that shows your colleagues and clients that you're focused, smartly put together, and even downright bullish about the future, explore this collection of indulgently exquisite cloths and seductive styles that are perfect for a crisp & sharp-shouldered power-suit commissioned by Raja.

It's not what the vision is. It's what the vision does.
Stronger padded shoulders and a chest-widening low button stance create a masculine deep v-shape while packed peak lapels, the most challenging for tailors to cut on a single-breasted suit project formality, swagger, and a man who means business. To keep the look refined when the jacket is slung around a club chair during afterwork drinks, wear a suit vest.
Besides fitting slim around the leg, a traditional power suit's trousers should have low to no break: hitting the top of your shoe covering just a smidge of the laces to create a subtle horizontal crease.
At first they will ask why you're doing it. Later, they'll ask how you did it.
A dress shirt with a spread collar accommodates larger tie knots such as the Windsor. French cuffs pack more flair than single or barrel cuffs and allow for accessorizing with an elegant pair of cufflinks.
The Final Touches
A pocket square especially a silk one with an eye-catching pattern or texture adds a playful accent, while a fine watch with a leather strap or chain-link conveys the importance of your time.
