Top 5 Reasons to Maintain a Professional Appearance

Top 5 Reasons to Maintain a Professional Appearance

We make no bones about the fact that our men's shoe covers are intended for professional men who do everything within their power to maintain a professional appearance. Our customers tend to be attorneys, business executives, doctors, public servants, and the like. All of them must maintain a certain appearance in their professional lives.

This is no accident. In certain professions, people are expected to dress a certain way. Whether voluntarily or involuntarily, professional dress codes do affect how things get done. This is why it is so important for professional men to protect their shoes with waterproof shoe covers.

To illustrate the point, here are the top five reasons to maintain a professional appearance:

1. You Will Project More Authority

We human beings tend to create our first impressions of other people based on what we see. That being the case, we also have a tendency to associate authority with people who dress professionally. If you are in a business meeting looking to close a million-dollar deal, are you more likely to trust an executive in a business suit or someone dressed in cutoff jeans and a tank top?

For right or wrong, we associate authority with a professional appearance. That is why politicians go to the podium wearing business suits. It is why attorneys go to court dressed the way they do. Going into a professional setting with wet or dirty shoes ruins everything.

2. You Will Project More Confidence

One of the subsequent benefits of projecting more authority is projecting more confidence. When you feel people trust and respect you, you are more confident in your own abilities. This is one of the reasons business executives preach the concept of dressing for success. If you want to succeed as a professional, dress like one. That includes using waterproof shoe covers to protect your shoes during inclement weather.

3. You Will Close More Deals

The business world has its own protocol for getting deals done. The protocol involves business meetings and formal attire during the day, followed by loose collars and casual discussions over dinner. In short, dressing appropriate to the occasion almost always increases the chances of closing the deal. Why would you not do everything in your power to make that happen?

4. You Will Increase Your Productivity

There is something about formal dress that causes us to pay more attention to what we are doing. So much so that maintaining a professional appearance is likely to increase your productivity. This concept goes hand-in-hand with dressing for success. If you want to produce like a professional, you have to adopt the mind of a professional. A big part of that is maintaining a professional appearance.

5. You Will Draw a Clear Delineation Between Work and Play

The professional men we cater to are not all business all the time. They have lives outside of work. To that end, maintaining a professional appearance during working hours creates a clear delineation between work and play. That can make an enormous difference if you are struggling to maintain a good work-life balance.

When you are dressed in formal attire with clean shoes, you are all business. It's time to get to it. When you're wearing jeans, a T-shirt, and sneakers, work is off the table and it's time for the family. Give your family your all.
