Unless you get a new client, like me, who knows so little that he cannot figure out what he doesn't like, let alone express it in a meaningful way. I usually rely on the salesman to have more knowledge of fashion to explain what colors/shapes work for my frame, coloring, facial structure, and provide me with options. THEN I might be able to figure out what I like and don't like.That is an excellent recommendation. The first question I pose to a new client is this: "You've been wearing shirts your entire life. What is it that you don't like about all the shirts you've worn?" And I make a list of every issue which remains permanently in the client's file. It may be a little thing ... but it may also be the most important thing.
I want you to take my desires into account, but please, PLEASE, explain that I, in fact, do not want a solid black suit. I wish someone had explained that to me three black suits ago.
