    Yuk! I would never ever wear none of her combinations. It's old-fashioned and it's not going to get you noticed or promoted any time soon. Have you ever seen a power woman or a young promising woman CEO show up at the office wearing this crap (pardon my French!)?! No way!

    I wear button up shirts and ties almost every day by choice, when I attend school and teach music lessons. This video is terrible, and petty.

    His suit is way too big a size or 2 smaller would look great. He just looks like a used car salesman with that.

    And when she says: you wouldn't want to be embarrassed when he walks in. She also means she. CEOs can be women too.

    You must not have been listening. The speaker said suits should be tailored to fit after purchasing, which is always true. Every professional attire I've bought were a little baggy or long until I get it fit just right.
