DRESS TO IMPRESS : SOHYAL KARKI
Impressions count for a lot in a working professional and wearing the right clothes help in that account. Although a stellar personality on its own is an impressive attribute, a well thought out ensemble definitely helps you get a
Sohyal Karki knows full well of the advantages of looking exceptional. He has his hands full as a Real Estate Developer, Investor, and Education Entrepreneur, but that has never held him back from looking dapper every day of the week.
We discuss the importance of looking good at work and more about his style.
DOES WHAT YOU WEAR AFFECT HOW YOU FEEL?
Absolutely! Dressing up well automatically adds to my confidence level and comfort. To look good and feel great about it as a business minded person takes effort, because you need to find the balance between being neither over- dressed nor under-dressed. So I particularly ensure that I manage to squeeze time outs with my tailor for this purpose from my busy schedule.
WHAT 3 THINGS DO YOU ALWAYS CARRY WITH YOU?
I am always on the move and work is such that I constantly have to be on the run. So I make sure I never leave home without my smartphones, car keys and a well-loaded wallet.
HOW IMPORTANT IS GROOMING AND ATTIRE FOR A YOUNG WORKING PROFESSIONAL?
Well, this is a matter of personal choice. For instance, corporate biggies like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were never highly conscious about the fashion trends of their time, and they still managed to leave an inspirational mark in the corporate world. But not all of us can be Bill or Steve.
So as a young working professional today, I personally think it’s very important to always be impeccably dressed, physically fit and well groomed. The clothes you wear and how well you carry yourself definitely counts in setting up a good first impression, and people also tend to take you more seriously.
HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE YOUR STYLE?
I think style should not just be limited to catching up with the latest of fashion trends. Along with being well-dressed, it’s very important for me to be highly respectful, well spoken, intelligent, physically fit and confident in every manner.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CLOTHING COMBO?
I make sure that I am always well-suited when it comes to formal occasions and work. Otherwise, I don’t mind donning casual wear. It’s ironic how being hard pressed for time has instilled in me a passion for watches. I ensure that my attire is well teamed-up with a chic watch from my collection.
YOU LIKE TO SPLURGE ON?
My holidays, lifestyle and family. Absolutely no second thoughts about it. I work very hard everyday just so that I can afford all this extravagance and live a life without any limitations.
YOUR MOST PRIZED POSSESSION?
My Honda CBR 600RR and Landrover Freelander 2.
