Most people will argue, that these days it’s not about how you dress and it’s all about what you can do. When Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Apple founder Steve Jobs go anywhere with simple black or grey color t-shirt and denim jeans.
However, what you need to realize is, you are not the owner of Facebook or Apple, you are still required to give the best first impression you can produce when you attending a business meeting. You need to bring you’re A-game when you preparing for a new business meeting. You’re going to meet the people who are going to write you a cheque each month.
