Graduation is a briefly wonderful time. There are parties, congratulations, and small envelopes stuffed with cash from family friends and relatives. Once the backyard barbecues end, you might temporarily experience boredom in your newfound freedom from school, a boredom that will quickly be replaced by the looming realization that you just ran out of your last excuse for not being an adult. It's time to get a job – no problem, right?
We don't have to tell you that the job market is tough right now, so you need a way to set yourself apart from the other qualified candidates. You've got the skills and the smarts, now we're going to give you the style.
Primer is partnering up with hand crafted suit creators extraordinaire 7 Regent Lane to make sure you look your best when it's time to interview. One lucky winner will get a custom tailored suit, your choice of either the regal Augustus Solid Gray or the sharp Praxis Navy Pinstripe.
If you take a look at the suits and, knowing your own personal style, think it could use a tweak, 7 Regent Lane will alter many of the options for you. If, after falling in love with the suit, you want to purchase another, you'll find the alterations are still free of charge.
Buying a suit online can be hairy for first-timers. Yes, that’s Navy. Navy Blue. Or is it black? When’s the last time you calibrated your monitor, anyways? If you’re uncertain about a color, fear not – 7RL will provide you with a fabric swatch kit (and a measuring tape!) free of charge, so you can get a clear and accurate real world view of the exact shade of blue you’re buying.
As a Primer reader, you've no doubt come to understand that the key to looking great in virtually anything is finding the proper fit, which, if you're pulling items from a rack, is virtually impossible. You'll rarely find perfection if you're searching for it, it's something that must be tailored for you.
If the suit you receive from 7 Regent Lane isn't perfect (maybe your waist measurement was a little too forgiving?), you can take the suit to your local tailor and 7RL will hook you up with a $75 alteration credit. The likelihood of your measurements being off is slim though, as long as you use the Flawless Fit guide provided by 7 Regent Lane here. This Twelve Step program is a lot easier to finish than the other kind, and will make sure your fit looks and feels great.
For those readers not lucky enough to win one of these beautiful suits, the 100% Flawless Fit Guarantee should sway you to considering purchasing some of these fine wares – but we're not going to let you head off into the cut-throat job hunting world empty handed. Well, most of you will go empty handed, sorry. But one second prize winner will receive a pair of Bostonian Reserve dress shoes, which are made in Italy and are as comfortable as they are sharp. These plain-toe bluchers have a timeless design and will be in style for as long as you take care of them.
Yet another winner will be able to bling their wrist with a Skagen Gray and Black Titanium Watch, a beautifully modern and practical time piece that'll make you look like you've got at least 3 years more experience than you do.
So go forth, graduate. Celebrate. Take a little time to yourself – after entering this contest, of course. But know that when you're ready to jump into the job market, Primer Magazine and 7 Regent Lane have got your immaculately dressed back.
Entering is easy!
