“I’ve never had a great reason to show off, but if I did, I wouldn’t. You know why? No one likes a showoff. It’s tacky and it can be interpreted as though you think you are better than someone else. Chances are that you actually are better, but that’s not a nice thing to remind people. But just because showing off can be ill received doesn’t mean that you need to hide or be ashamed of your accomplishments or success. You’ve worked hard to earn your credentials. You’ve studied all night, you’ve put in the time. You’ve paid your dues and you have every right to be proud of where you are, and there are tactful ways to show this to the careful observer. Don’t buy that Bentley if you want to keep a low profile, try something a little more subtle. It’s sexy and it’s classy.
1. The right accessory
There are few things on God’s green Earth that are as synonymous with success than a Rolex. A Rolex is no more a watch than a Harley is a bicycle. A Rolex is a piece of art, it is the definition of pride and perfection. If you wear a Rolex, you are telling the world that you are not one to settle for anything less. Ever. Rolex watches are renown for hand made precision. They are the Rolls Royce of accessories. One of the many truly beautiful things about this gem that sets it apart from other watches is that the people who design and construct these classy time pieces are just as proud of their work as you are of yours. If you were to in fact invest in one, you could always contact the certified rolex repair any time you wanted to make sure that yours was working right for you. Just as their product is second to none, so is their rolex customer service.
2. A tailored suit
Ask literally any classy woman in the world if it’s worth investing in a tailored suit, and they will all say yes. Not only do you look the part, but you feel the part and when you feel the part, you act it. You are it. There’s a reason that when you see a gentleman walk down the street, he turns heads. It’s not because we think he’s rich, there’s rich people everywhere. It’s because he’s put together. Despite whatever problems he’s having with his car that week, or that his boss may have scolded him in front of the investor he has a crush on, we don’t know. All we, the gawking public know, is that today he put on that suit and he looks like a million bucks whether or not he feels it.
3. That smooth bottle of liquor
If you have your colleagues into your office late Friday and offer them a Jack Daniels, they’ll either expect to hit the local dive bar afterwards, or opt out and go home to their classy husbands and wives. Open your cabinet and pull out that 25 year old single malt. It will turn their heads every time. The right scotch is just as effective as the right suit or the right watch to show the world that your life is going just how you planned without shoving it down their throats. Remember, tact is attractive.
