Life Is Too Short To Dress Like A Penguin
Pity the penguin. He is a gallery of fear. Dresses like a Ken doll, because Barbie is his frame of reference. Thinks the cut of fabric impersonates the shape of the man he's supposed to be.
Black cotton suits are the pro forma signal of an executive out of his element. Weakness. Herd animals blend into each other to make it harder for predators to target an individual. Standing out is too dangerous for this man.
Think about it: this suit says the man inside is afraid to be outstanding.
Do you want an accountant who is afraid of being outstanding?
How about an attorney?
An outstanding aesthetic is indicative of an outstanding individual.
