Understand Power Dress Code

Be aware of the signal value of a consistent dress code. You are treated exactly according to the way you are dressed. I have personally been stopped at customs when travelling wearing blue jeans many times but never once wearing a suit. As you can imagine I always travel in business attire. Particularly if there is a problem, you get the help you deserve when you are properly dressed. When you need to make maximum use of power attire (with a difficult customer or your bank manager) wear a black or dark blue suit, white shirt and a red tie.
