Being wealthy and successful are two things that give a man status. A person in power is expected that you portray this image. It really is about how people conceive you on a daily basis. If you wear a ill fitted shirt with a tacky tie and sandals to work, it is likely that you will be treated with the same informality. Swap this look with a power suit and polished shoes, and the whole way people communicate with you will change. Why? Because people address you according to the way you dress.
The whole concept of being a real businessman has undergone a major facelift, as dressing appropriately has become an art. All aspects of your outfit play an important part - from the shoes and tie, to the cufflinks and watch. Yes - the watch. Pulling a Robert Langdon and wearing a Mickey Mouse watch is just something a fictional character would do - not the extremely successful business man in New York.
