You’ve just landed your dream first job right out of college; the pay may not be great, but it’s the first step to the head of the boardroom. On your journey up the corporate ladder it’s always important to look professional, but you don’t want to look like you ransacked your father's suit closet. In this edition of Suit Your Life, we have some great suit options that are both stylish and just the right price for the guy starting out or any businessman looking to save without sacrificing quality. —Gardy V.

We’re already in mid-August and I just cannot figure out how this summer went by so fast. If you’re like me, you want to try to get as much out of these last few summer weeks as possible (officially, there’s only six left!!). This means attending every great to decent open air concert, BBQ, rooftop cocktail party, sailing excursion, pool party, beach day, and anything that sounds even remotely summer. 	In this installment of Suit Your Life, I’ll focus on those key summer items and garments I’ve used and plan to pull out again for every worthwhile activity we have left, including the Black Enterprise Golf & Tennis Challenge on Labor Day Weekend (Sept. 1-5) in Miami. It also doesn’t hurt that most stores are having their end of season sales so you’ll be able to rack up on most of these great items for up to 75% off. Thank me later. —Gardy V. Guerrier
