SAPEUR

I love Japanese TV show, which a comedian visits Japanese who lives in overseas. 

Last time, he went to Congo! What I only knew about Congo was it’s African country and became indispent from France. So national language is French.

In the show, he communicated with local people and they looked so elegant in suits. Where this came from? They still admir French culture. SAPEUR stands for Société des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Élégantes in Frech and it means “Fasionable, elegant gentleman”. They had the impression to French people during colony.  

  
After independence, civil war occurred and many people were killed. They were asked to sell suits and had a gun but they refused because they believed that gentleman never had a gun and kill people. Some of them buried their suits under the ground and ran away. Being SAPEUR was a proof of peace for them. 

They don’t get enough salary to buy suits such Christian Dior, Prada, Louis Vitton. But they wear them even though they can’t get by. Many people love to be fasionista but who ever think about proof of piece by fashion?

Men in suits. 

My colleagues and I had a conversation about men for suits over lunch. One of our male coworkers always wear stylish custom-made suits. He loves fashion and he dwells on brands and good things. However, after he got married , he  started wearing ready-made suits too. Apparently textile for ready-made is different. Probably, his custome-made suits were way too good. The changed can’t be help. He has a wife and have to economise. 

Our topic was how people look differently in a suit. All of us believe wearing a suit is apt to make men look 30 % better.  It looks like smart and a competent looking. But wearing suit makes girls disappointe If we meet coworkers in frumpy  plain clothes in private. It also found a relevant article.

According to this article, people think defferently when you are in a suit.  

People are more confident and feel powerful and changed the basic way we see the world and wearing clothing that’s more formal than usual makes people think more broadly and holistically, rather than narrowly and about fine-grained detail.  

It’s proved by psychologi’ researches. When we go to a mixer, girls  need to watch out. If men wear suit, they might be too confident to read the situation.
