Some major changes have been instituted at our website recently, specially in the way we interact sartorially, as well as new product lines and features have been added to ensure a wholesome ordering process.
After a lot of trial and error, fixing of bugs in the system and a lot of hard work and heart break, we are finally done with the latest version of our Custom tailoring website.
A special word of thanks to my staff and my webmaster for all their efforts that have now borne fruit in one of the best online custom tailoring sites on the web.

What´s new on the FASHION GRAPEVINE ?

It turns out that clothes are more important than you think. In fact, researchers have come up with some scientific evidence to support the notion that what you wear really does make a difference in how you influence the world around you. So now you know what you always suspected! The guy down the hall who didn´t know poop and got the vice-president´s slot got it not because he was smart, but because he knew how to look smart.
In situations such as job interviews, court appearances, sales presentations and first dates it is important to make a not just good, but a great first impression for maximum credibility and authority.
Behavioral scientists tell us that the effect of a first impression is a strong one. The process of sizing you up is something that goes on almost subconsciously. Your evaluation by a stranger takes 30 seconds or less, and can be so strong that it could take as long as five years to erase.
Why not take advantage of the research on human nature and utilize the knowledge to enhance and control how you are accepted? Since about 90 percent of you is covered by apparel, the clothing you choose makes a significant impact. This is such an important area -- but at least it´s one in which you can effect the greatest impression by just knowing what you´re doing.

On a different note, here is some history of NECKTIES!

The history of neckties dates back a mere hundred years or so, for they came into existence as the direct result of a war. In 1660, in celebration of its hard-fought victory over Turkey, a crack regiment from Croatia (then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire) visited Paris. There, the soldiers were presented as glorious heros to Louis XIV, a monarch well known for his eye toward personal adornment. It so happened that the officers of this regiment were wearing brightly colored handkerchiefs fashioned of silk around their necks. These neck cloths, which probably descended from the Roman fascalia worn by orators to warm the vocal chords, struck the fancy of the king, and he soon made them an insignia of royalty as he created a regiment of Royal Cravattes. The word "cravat," incidentally, is derived from the word "Croat."
It wasn´t long before this new style crossed the channel to England. Soon no gentleman would have considered himself well dressed without sporting some sort of cloth around his neck -- the more decorative, the better. At times, cravats were worn so high that a man could not move his head without turning his whole body. There were even reports of cravats worn so thick that they stopped sword thrusts. The various styles knew no bounds, as cravats of tasseled strings, plaid scarves, tuffs and bows of ribbon, lace and embroidered linen all had their staunch adherents. Nearly one hundred different knots were recognized, and as a certain M. Le Blanc, who instructed men in the fine and sometimes complex art of tying a tie, noted, "The grossest insult that can be offered to a man comme il faut is to seize him by the cravat; in this place blood only can wash out the stain upon the honor of either party."
In this country, ties were also an integral part of a man´s wardrobe. However, until the time of the Civil War, most ties were imported from the Continent. Gradually, though, the industry gained ground, to the point that at the beginning of the twentieth century, American neckwear finally began to rival that of Europe, despite the fact that European fabrics were still being heavily imported.
In the 1960s, in the midst of the Peacock Revolution, there was a definite lapse in the inclination of men to wear ties, as a result of the rebellion against both tradition and the formality of dress. But by the mid-70s, this trend had reversed itself to the point where now, in the 1980s, the sale of neckwear is probably as strong if not stronger than it has ever been.
How to account for the continued popularity of neckties? For years, fashion historians and sociologists predicted their demise -- the one element of a man´s attire with no obvious function. Perhaps they are merely part of an inherited tradition. As long as world and business leaders continue to wear ties, the young executives will follow suit and ties will remain a key to the boardroom. On the other hand, there does seem to be some aesthetic value in wearing a tie. In addition to covering the buttons of a shirt and giving emphasis to the verticality of a man´s body (in the same way that the buttons on a military uniform do), it adds a sense of luxury and richness, color and texture, to the austerity of the dress shirt and business suit.
Perhaps no other item of a man´s wardrobe has altered its shape so often as the tie. It seems that the first question fashion writers always ask is, "Will men´s ties be wider or narrower this year?"
In the late 1960s and early 70s, ties grew to five inches in width. At the time, the rationale was that these wide ties were in proportion to the wider jacket lapels and longer shirt collars. This was the correct approach, since these elements should always be in balance. But once these exaggerated proportions were discarded, fat ties became another victim of fashion.
The proper width of a tie, and the one that will never be out of style, is 3 1/2 inches (2 3/4 to 3 1/2 inches are also acceptable). As long as the proportions of men´s clothing remain true to a man´s body shape, this width will set the proper balance. Though many of the neckties today are cut in these widths, the section of the tie where the knot is made has remained thick -- a holdover from the fat, napkin like ties of the 1960s. This makes tying a small, elegant knot more difficult. Yet the relationship of a tie´s knot to the shirt collar is an important consideration. If the relationship is proper, the knot will never be so large that it spreads the collar or forces it open, nor will it be so small that it will become lost in the collar.
Standard neckties come in lengths anywhere from 52 to 58 inches long. Taller men, or those who use a Windsor Knot, may require a longer tie, which can be special ordered. After being tied, the tips of the necktie should be long enough to reach the waistband of the trousers (the ends of the tie should either be equal, or the smaller one just a fraction shorter).
