5 steps to take care of your suit
November 21, 2013
More than once, we have bought a suit thinking solely on one occasion. Suddenly, another event comes up, during the day or night, and we use it once more. Some years pass by and some changes like the replacement of the wide flaps for a thinner model, a notch to the suit or the suit's color. Then, older and further appreciating our clothes (with each year that passes we like to dedicate time to clothing ourselves) we acquire a new suit. But the previous one, the one that has accompanied us for quite some time, is still in great condition and we will get back to it as soon as we can. Let's not forget, however, that with the passing of time, the suit can start wearing out, staining, or discoloring. But, how can we prevent this?, here we give 5 detailed steps to maintain your suit as if it was brand new.
1st- WE DO NOT LEAVE IT CLASPED IN THE WARDROBE
Start with this advice, it's very important, it will avoid that the suit progressively shrinks and takes a shape that's different from the real dimensions of your body, since the clothe is confectioned to have a certain volume and if you hang them clasped, since it is plain it will fold and deform.
2nd- USE THICK HANGERS
When putting our suit away in the wardrobe we must pay attention to which hangers we use. The most recommendable to hang suits are the ones that have volume in the shoulders: If you use plain hangers the only think you will achieve is to force the crown of the sleeves and they will get crushed. The result? The suit will no longer fit you well.
3rd- DON'T IRON A SUIT AS IF YOU WERE IRONINGm A SHIRT
If we are going to iron it ourselves, we must protect the fabric with a cloth, that way we will avoid the shine. Also, we will iron drily, which will avoid the damage the vapor can cause in interlining. Define the lines and folds and reinforce with a light pass of the iron.
4th- THE AIR IS THE ENEMY OF THE BAD ODORS THAT ARE IMPREGNATED IN THE SUIT
Never commit the error of, arriving from a social reunion or event, and taking the suit straight into the wardrobe; the first thing you must do is expose it for a pair of hours to an open space to eliminate odors and prevent them from impregnating and coming out during the next reunion.
5th- PROCURE USING COVERS
The wardrobe of a man has as much movement as the living style of such; it's because of this that it is recommended that, it is put away in a cover, as to avoid the dust and moths, wrinkles and deformations that the constant movement from the use of other outfits can cause. If you are in a humid climate, take out the suit every so often to avoid the sprout of stains and bad odor.
Impress with your appearance at an important dinner
November 9, 2013
It happens that it's the time in which you have an important business dinner, or perhaps, you finally decided to ask for the hand of your partner; however, the anxiety and the rush can sometimes cloud our creativity regarding the look we choose and make us pass through the terror of generating a bad impression or ruining the meeting because of a wrong combination. Everything must be perfect. Everything must look good. That's when you decide to go to a specialized store or a good tailor, but you have no idea what your decision will be: in our style manual, we present some details that you must not pass up on when deciding that special suit.
Business meeting.- Use a suit with dark tonality ( blue, black or grey) plain or with lines always wearing a shirt. With lines if the suit is plain or of solid colors. If the suit has lines, avoid ties with designs and loud or bright colors, we recommend solid colors.
Romantic Dinner.- In a marriage proposal or an anniversary the idea is to always impress, then the look must reflect complete elegance and for that it is indispensable that the tux be plain and of dark color, with a soft colored shirt and tie of any texture but of solid colors; also procure that the suit is the best-tailored suit that you own. The use of a handkerchief is optional but it will bring an additional touch of elegance to your look.
Institutional Event.- The situation is characterized because the guests always communicate with their attire and project, through it, their rank in business and the ranking title in which the company performs, it's because of this that the classic combination of suit is recommended, shirt and tie avoiding bright or loud accessories or details that generate barriers in our interaction with executives of all levels.
•For these three occasions it is important to keep in mind that you must wear black shoes and belts of color back with a small buckle.
•You must be able to fit two fingers in the neck of your shirt. If you can fit more than two, then the shirt is probably too large.
•If the event is during the day and you are wearing sunglasses, opt for a pair with a metal frame or brown ones. These show more sophistication than the black ones.
•Never wear formal shoes with a squared point. These would make you appear less sophisticated and will take elegance away from your suit.
•Remember that the last button in your suit must never be buttoned.
It goes without saying that they are our recommendations for wear, but ultimately the decision of tones and designs will be up to you. It's about, not showing off uniformed designs that everyone else in the world must follow, but having a personal style, elegant and to consider the recommendations as to not be perceived at all or gather attention scandalously.
