How Exclusive Are Luxury Brands

Givenchy has a $700 shirt in stock. Tom Ford has $3200 shoes on display. Zilli has a suit for $10,200 off the rack. How many do they actually create? It’s not a matter of do they have the customer for these types of price points, they certainly do, but how many pieces could actually be produced in these categories?

How To Buy A Well Tailored Suit

Before I began writing this article, I did a Google search on my topic of choice. The search resulted in over 9 million hits on how to buy a suit or how to choose a suit. I skimmed a few to get the main idea of what these authors were writing about, and concluded that most of them did not know what they were writing about. This was most evident when the authors included a photo to highlight and demonstrate how a suit should fit, and the garment did not fit. As the old adage goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.

How Do You Tell The Difference Between A Suit And Sport Jacket

A suit is a matching set of a jacket and trouser.  It's not enough to say that they match, but must be cut from the same bolt of cloth when the pattern is cut. This is when the suit is just a piece of flat fabric. This part is essential in the manufacturing process to ensure matching die lots. If you cut the pant from another bolt of fabric it may not match even though it is the same.

In a few days, 2015 will arrive. If you’re celebrating at a swanky event, be sure to be prepared with a dynamite outfit. Men, don’t think you can get away with wearing your work shoes with formal attire. There’s nothing worse than a tuxedo paired with lace-ups completely scuffed from everyday travels on the bus and subway systems of a major metropolis.

Why It's Important For Your Brand That Giorgio Armani Dressed George Clooney For His Wedding

Giorgio Armani, now 80 years old, has his name on every type of product from jeans to hotels to swimwear to perfume. He found it important to make this announcement himself at his Milan Fashion Week show when a vast amount of press was present. We all know George Clooney as a very successful actor with two Oscars. It’s known that the two are friends.

What can we learn from this announcement? Is it just another pop culture, fashion blurb that the press will milk day in and day out until we see the photos? Is there something telling about his announcement that we could use for our own brands?

Is The Apple Watch A Fashionista In Disguise

When it comes to Apple tech we only get it once every 18 months to two years.  When it arrives there is so much hype and anticipation.  Whatever Apple introduces the majority wants immediately.  There are already people lined up at the Apple flagship on Fifth Avenue and 58th Street in New York City.  Today, along with the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Apple launched the Apple Watch.  Not only is it a marvelous piece of innovative technology that took years to design and build, but it’s fashionable or at least it wants to be.
