Harvey Specter's Quotes To Live By

Who would have thought that the renowned and TV’s best-dressed asshole would give an important lesson to us and he’d even serve as our de facto life coach?

The hit TV series Suits has been the talk of the town for more than six years now (next to Game of Thrones and How to Get Away with Murder, of course) and Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht in real life) has never failed to annoy (and amaze?) us with his arrogant attitude on TV, but admit it or not, we’ve learned something from his witty sarcasm lines one or another.

“The thing that impressed me the most was the service. From the introductory meeting, to the measurement, to the fitting session, I was never pressured or rushed. I highly recommend DV to any guy looking for suits and shirts.”

I ordered a suit for my wedding because I wanted something special and unique made just for me. I was initially drawn to DVC because I noticed from their website the importance of the details along with the flashy look I wanted! The whole experience was excellent!

I got two bamboo cotton shirts from DVC. The experience was great. I went in and got my measurements. I learned what makes shirts high quality. Overall, I was very happy with the experience and looking to buy some pants and suits in the future.
