About Tailored and Bespoke Suits

Bespoke is similar to haute couture, a style of women’s clothing that’s also tailored specifically to the buyer’s demands. Widely used in the United Kingdom, the word is hardly ever used in fashion circles in the Unites States unless it is a high-end tailoring business.

Tailor made suits are traditionally made from patterns designed from scratch for the particular buyer. In this way it differs from “off-the-rack” clothing, which is made in a complete condition and standard sizes such as small, medium and large. Bespoke suits are also different from made-to-measure suits as the latter are constructed from an adjusted block pattern. None of this is to say that bespoke clothing isn’t particularly well-built, but since the inception of ready-to-wear clothing, bespoke garments are much more costly and involve a higher degree of assembly. The distinction to keep in mind when it comes to bespoke and made-to-measure is that bespoke … Read the rest

Buying Shoes for Children

Opt for shoes that have Velcro straps or laces instead of slip ons. These shoes fasten the shoe to the foot in a similar way to how seat belts in cars do. Also try to avoid ballet style pumps currently in fashion as they lack vital support in the inner body of the shoe and provide virtually no shock absorption.

Try to get your child’s feet measured professional in both length and width on both feet. Incorrectly fitting shoes can cause damage to a growing foot.

A good idea is to allow the space of a fingers width in front of any shoe you will buy to allow growth and elongation of the foot while walking.

When buying trainers be aware that many are designed for specific sports and may not be suitable for everyday wear. Always try to get them measured professionally before you buy and also try to … Read the rest

Should Try Colored Contacts

A Subtle Change

If you have light colored eyes, enhancing contacts can be used to give your eyes more definition and deep without radically changing their colour. This kind of contacts are perfect if you want people to compliment you on your look, but without noticing how did you manage. They are also great for those days when you feel asleep as they can brighten up your look and make you look more awake immediately, specially if you use the right makeup.

Changing Your Look Radically

Colored contacts are also great if you want to radically change your look. Even if it looks like a small thing, changing your eye color can totally change your aspect. For example, colored contacts allow you to look exotic, with light eyes and dark skin and hair, even if it’s a combination that doesn’t happen often. Colored contacts are an affordable way of matching … Read the rest

Avoiding Painful Footwear

Despite this situation, I do realise that some people prefer to look at footwear in more practical terms. You may be one of these people. You may well think about shoes as being accessories that you simply wear. As long as they don’t break in any way, that’s pretty much all that you’re bothered about!

But do you ever find that you have pain as a result of wearing shoes? You may find that some footwear is almost unbearable to wear. As a result, there may be items in your wardrobe that you rarely choose to wear. You may see them as being something of a last resort. Have you ever wondered why some should cause more pain than others?

There are a number of reasons for this and it’s fair to say that you may be heading for problems if you don’t pay attention at the purchasing stage. You … Read the rest

Buying Shoes that Fit

Here’s a checklist to help you on your next shoe-shopping trip:

  • Have your feet measured by a salesperson. Foot size typically increases with age.
  • Have both feet measured. Often one foot is larger than the other. If that’s so, buy to fit the larger foot.
  • Always try on both shoes.
  • Shop after work or in the late afternoon. Since feet swell during the day, you want a fit that will be comfortable until you kick off your shoes at home.
  • When you go shopping, take with you the socks or stockings you intend to wear with your new pair of shoes.
  • When going for a test walk, step onto a hard surface, such as tile or concrete, before you make a selection. Walking on carpet does not give a true indication of comfort.
  • Buy shoes that hug the heel and allow one half inch of room at the end of

Best Time of Day to Buy Shoes

Most people’s feet swell through the course of the day, and this is why buying shoes in the morning is never a good idea. By late afternoon your feet will have settled so it is the best time to buy them. If you are in the majority, like me, there will be a slight difference in the size of your feet. This only becomes a problem in certain styles. This is why you must try both shoes on before parting with your hard earned cash. You don’t want to be limping around because your toes are crushed in one shoe.

To further help you get a great fit in those new shoes, wear the same thickness of socks that you will normally be wearing with them. If you will be wearing pantyhose with them, don’t try them on barefoot. It’s common sense really. If you are going for training shoes

Wear an Infinity Scarf

The first way to wear your infinity scarf is one of the most common ways that people wear this accessory. It is very simple to do and you can adjust to your liking and according to what outfit you are wearing. You simply place the scarf around your neck and then twist it and wrap it around your neck again. You should now have two layers of the scarf around your neck that you can play with. Wear one layer longer and have the other one closer to your neck or you can wear both of them right in the middle right next to each other.

The second way to wear an infinity scarf is to simply keep wrapping it around your neck until you have gotten the desired look you want. This gives you an illusion cowl-like neck or another layer besides your shirt. How many times you wrap … Read the rest

Pants Should Fit Men

Rise – The “rise” of your pants basically refers to the groin area. In recent years, men have commonly started to wear jeans with a low rise. For a sophisticated and well-fitted look, you must look for pants with a rise that actually lays close to your anatomical crotch. Anything that hangs down or sags simply looks unpolished. Also noteworthy is the fact that if there is too little fabric in the rise, the pants will be quite uncomfortable. There should be just enough fabric in the rise of your pants that it shows contour without being tight. Make sure that when you try on pants, you sit down and stand up again to make sure the rise fits properly.

Drape – When trying on dress pants, check to make sure that there are no visible horizontal lines around your hips, thighs and backside. If there are, the pants are … Read the rest

Buying Proper Shoes For Health

Additionally, it’s often good to have both feet measured before buying. As we age the sizes tend to change and we may gain or lose weight on 1 foot, while the other foot remains the same or vice versa. When measuring both feet, fit the shoe to the larger foot. Of course, shoe sizes vary depending on the style and designers. So make sure you try on each shoe that you would like to buy just to see if they’re comfortable or not. Leave about a centimetre of space between your longest toe and the end of the toe box.

Also, you know that myth about breaking shoes in. Yes, this is a myth. So don’t buy shoes that are too tight, thinking that they’ll just stretch out.
