In case you missed the latest issue of Canadian Business Magazine, Melissa was asked what to do when the boardroom sweats start to become a problem:
“There’s nothing worse than going for lunch and getting to your afternoon meeting with big pit stains under your arms,” says Melissa Austria, founder of Toronto-based menswear clothing store Gotstyle. “That’s all people can look at.”
If you’re a business person or, more specifically, a businessman without the option of wearing a skirt and sandals, this may be the year to rethink your summer wardrobe. Austria says the undershirt is a good place to start. Ditch the cotton for bamboo fabric, she says. It keeps moisture away from the body instead of trapping it.
Short-sleeved dress shirts are acceptable in most workplaces, Austria says, but they should be worn tucked in, have a tailored fit, and be in basic colours such as blue or white to avoid looking like something you’d wear to a Saturday night BBQ. To make this look even more formal, buy a shirt with a nice cuff detail on the arm, or pair it with a tie for that “geek chic” look.
