Some people think that men are ignorant of fashion, especially a lot of women. That may be true of some men but as for myself I try to stay on top of the market. For one thing it is part of what I do as an internet marketer of diverse products. I need to know what is hot and what's not so I don't waste time and money promoting things that are not in demand.
With that said, if you are a lady who has a man that is not so into fashion and keeping up with what is in style you may have to take up the slack. One way to do this is to bring home a fine quality designer tie for him that will bring that old suit back to life. If you couple a new tie with a new white dress shirt it can add spice to nearly any suit.
All men will have the need for a suit and tie at some point. I know I wear only shorts and flip flops 95% of the time but when I go to seminars or speaking engagements I am expected to dress appropriately which includes wearing a nice suit and I am picky about the ties as well. I will not wear any tie, since I don't wear them often I like to really make a statement when I do.
It doesn't matter if your husband or boyfriend is conservative or more on the wild side ladies, there is a diverse selection of designer ties available in every imaginable color and pattern so you are sure to find something that will suit his taste. If your man is a little more on the unstructured side like me you may want to consider a tie that is a little more on the wild side as opposed to conservative. For example, I would not be caught dead in a striped tie!
If your man does wear a suit and tie everyday like I used to do he will appreciate the gift of a new tie to add new life to something he has been wearing on a daily basis. Try to get him to be a little experimental in tie selection as well as shirt colors. I knew a lot of men who only wore white shirts with gray suits and drab striped ties, how boring is that? People used to get a kick out of me because they never knew what color or what kind of wild print I would have on my ties.
Well before we get into this argument let's look at what is meant by dress boots and what is meant by casual boots.
Fist of all dress boots. As the name suggests these boots are worn to a restaurant or a business meeting. Anywhere where you want to look good. As a result they are usually elegant looking with an extended heel. An example of a dress boot is go-go boots and knee high boots.
Casual boots are footwear we would wear everyday. A good example is Doc Martins. Both women and men wear this popular footwear and they are of excellent quality. Other examples of casual boots are motorcycle boots and cowboy boots.
So what do you prefer? Are you a casual person or a dress person? Perhaps you are both. Well there is no doubt that they give people a different style. Casual boots for example have a colorful history. They have been worn by the military, the police, skinheads and punks. More recently you see Goths wearing boots. They certainly have a rebellious quality and individualism that much footwear lack.
When you wear casual boots, perhaps along with your clothes and haircut they tell people exactly what you are interested in. How many times have you seen a skinhead walking confidently down the road with a heavy pair of steel caps? Did you avoid his stare? Probably. A similar thing with cowboy and motorcycle boots. We see this footwear on people and automatically make presumptions about them. It is a natural thing to do and no doubt why people are wearing these boots in the first place.
On the other hand dress boots are associated with confident, good looking people. Men and women who have good jobs and want to look good when they go out. Often we see models wearing knee high boots on the catwalk. But what do these say about you? Unlike casual boots, dress boots tend to give you a less edgy appearance, rather than being associating them with a sub-culture we tend to think high society. They give you a refined look and mark someone out as a respected person in society.
A lot of people own both kinds of footwear. If they are going to the pub they wear Doc Martins. If they are going on a date they may wear there knee high boots. That is the good thing about today's culture it seems like every fashion has been exhausted and we can feel free to wear what we like. When we like. Casual boots for example though linked in the past with skinheads are now worn by straightedge vegans. No longer do they have the negative connatations associated with them in the past.
Talk of trendy watches brings to one's attention the name of Mido. This fine quality watch is still one favored by watch wearers today. Mido has been known for a long time as a good quality fashionable watch. It remains one of the premier watchmakers still to this day.
Mido started in the industry in the early 1900s, when the company was started on November 11, 1918 by George G. Schaeren in Biel, Switzerland. The name Mido in latin that means measuring which is a fitting name for a device that measures time.
Over the next few decades that passed the company sought to prove that it was a good watch producer of high quality. The watch was produced even before citizen and produced many cutting edge innovations for the industry before Citizen even started making watches.
Mido introduced the Multifort model in the mid thirties. This was the very first watch to feature self propelled or automatic movements. The invention of this watch started the watch industry as it is today. The watch also was shock resistant, water resistant and anti magnetic which were all new innovations that had not been previously in the industry. Mido met another point when it produced unbreakable springs, which was also a first for the market to see. With so many new inventions no wonder why this watch company was in the front all these years. Mido's first watch was still being sold as a hit in the 60s.
Mido brought a model called the "Commander" in 1959. This was a single shelled watch and represented another first for the company as well. This single shell construction made its life a lot longer than most other watches and was another revolution in the industry of watch making. The Commander is still popular it to this day and is still among one of the most popular today.
In 1970 the Aquadura Crown Sealing system was brought to the market by the company, an invention that made Mido a leader, if not the leader in water resistant watches. The Aquadura crown sealing system uses a cork that seals the watches and doesn't get water in the chambers of the time pieces and causes them to work for a longer period of time. Today the Mido brand is a division of Swatch and is still leading in watch production and will still go on to be of great service to watch buyers throughout future decades.
