Four Benefits of Investing in a Custom-Made Suit

February 2, 2017
By

Tailored suits have long been associated with successful and affluent gentlemen who always look their best. Whether you need to invest in a new suit for your wedding, a friend or family member’s wedding, another important family event such as a christening, a big job interview or simply need something new to wear for work as you’re getting a promotion, there are many benefits to be had when you get your new suit custom made. Let’s have a look at some of the best benefits of investing in a tailor made suit.

Perfect Fit For You

If you’ve ever tried on a suit and you love it but it just doesn’t quite fit properly, then you’ll love the idea of getting a custom made suit. You can find many custom made suits online, where all you will need to do is simply put in your measurements, choose the type of fabric and colour that you would like, and wait for your unique, custom-made suit to arrive. You can rest assured that when you wear your suit it will flatter your figure and fit you perfectly in all the right places, meaning that it’ll be comfortable, too!

Better Quality

For the most part, purchasing a custom made suit means that you can enjoy a better quality of clothing. When you buy off the rack suits in a department store, they are usually made with cheaper fabric in order to be able to mass produce the number of suits on sale. Buying custom made often means going to a smaller, independent tailor and since the demand is lower, those who provide custom made suits are able to invest in better quality fabrics, tools and equipment to produce your suit.

Save Money

A custom made suit may be more expensive to buy initially, but in the long run, it can actually be a great way of saving money on fashion. If you purchase a suit that’s black, navy, or grey for example, you will be able to wear it again and again for various occasions and even for work, allowing you to get the most wear for your money. So, if you’re looking for great value, opt for custom made!

Future Alterations

One of the best things about a custom made suit is that in the future; it’s often easier to get them altered than off-the-rack suits from a clothing store. Since we don’t all stay the same shape and size throughout our lives, if you find that in a few years’ time you no longer fit into your custom made suit as it is now too big or small, you will usually be able to take it back to the tailor who made it and have it altered to fit your current size perfectly.

A good suit is something that every man should have in his wardrobe! If you need to invest in a new suit for yourself, opting for a custom-made design will ensure that you get the perfect fit and style for yourself.

Draw Out Your Drawing Talents With These 5 Jobs

Art is often ridiculed as a subject that won’t get you a job. But being able to draw well is in fact a valuable skill that can lead to a very well-paid profession. Here are a few examples of jobs that require your drawing talents.

Graphic design

Graphic design is essential to almost every product around us. On top of technical drawing, many products will require a sketch drawing which is freehand and requires more artistic ability. Branding such as packaging, logo-building and ad design also relies heavily on the more arty side of drawing, with designers having to draw cartoon characters or inventing iconographies. Familiarising yourself with certain graphics design programmes such as Adobe Illustrator can be useful (there are many Illustrator training courses available). Graphic design tablets and styluses have made digital drawing a lot easier – you can practically draw as if you were using paper and pen, with the added bonus that you can digitally erase.

Cartoons

Finding full-time work as a cartoonist is difficult but if you look hard enough you’ll find it. You may not land a job illustrating a comic strip or providing the animation for a Disney movie, but you may be able to provide political cartoons to newspapers or provide humorous cartoons for a kids magazine. If you’re bold enough, you can even take to the streets and offer caricatures. Many cartoonists will work on a freelance basis. Build up a portfolio and you’ll eventually be able to attract your own clients.

Illustrating

Publishing companies will often work with illustrators, providing writers with images for their books. Getting one’s foot in the door can be difficult – many will create blogs of their artwork and then approach publishing companies and authors individually. Children’s books are a particularly good way in as these are more picture-heavy. Illustrators may also be required for instruction manuals – whilst this can sometimes be more technical, pictures of people and hands may be needed that require a more skilled artist.

Album artwork

Whilst some musicians are happy to use a photo in their press pack, others prefer to have hand-drawn artwork to go with their albums and singles. This can be a lucrative market, although may require a lot of networking with local musicians. Eventually you can build up a portfolio which you can use to attract clients. Band, PR companies and music agents may recommend you based on your previous work.

Courtroom sketching

Before photography, courtroom sketching was commonplace. It has recently become more widespread, with many courts banning photographers. Courtroom sketches involve drawing a picture of courtroom proceedings and require a certain level of drawing talent. You don’t need to be legally trained, although an art degree may be favourable in many cases, as well as the ability to work in a short time frame.

What is the greatest album cover ever created?

Have you even wondered on what are the best album cover created in the entire music industry as for today? well actually, there are a bunch out there and there’s still keep on producing album hence there’s a new cover album to be included in the list. But as for today and as you’re an avid fan of the oldies songs you might got your list already in mind that you think is the greatest album cover ever created.

But if not, you can check my list below see it yourself on how awesome these albums are and their artists that am sure your parents will appreciate much..

While the music on an album is of upmost importance, the sleeve that holds the record gives artists a space for artistic expression. This has always been the case; from the first microgroove long-playing phonograph that was released in 1948, through the vinyl era and the many CDs that you see in music stores today.

However, which is the greatest album cover that has ever been created? Managed print specialist United Carlton has attempted to find out by drawing up a shortlist of six standout examples.

Take a look at each pick and then visit the firm’s Twitter page to give your thoughts on the best of the bunch, or offer your favourite that didn’t make the list:

The Beatles – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

(Cover can be seen here: http://www.thebeatles.com/album/sgt-peppers-lonely-hearts-club-band)

What better way to kick off our list than with the cover of a Grammy-winning album that was created by art champion and director Robert Fraser? The sleeve was a combination of work by designers Jann Haworth and Peter Blake and saw more than 70 artists, writers, thinkers and figures who inspired The Beatles featured. As a subtle nod to the end of the Hard Day’s Night-fueled Beatlemania era, the cover also saw the iconic British band as they were in 1967 standing alongside their younger selves.

The Beatles – Abbey Road

(Cover can be seen here: http://www.thebeatles.com/album/abbey-road)

The Beatles are the only band to make our list twice, though it shouldn’t be much of a surprise when you consider that the two album covers featured are those for Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road. For the latter, the famous foursome chose to part ways with simulations and instead feature themselves walking across a zebra crossing in a typical British street. It is a scene that has been replicated countless times ever since.

Pink Floyd – Dark Side Of The Moon

(Cover can be seen here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/reviews/gncz/)

Legendary designers Hipgnosis were the brains behind the cover for Pink Floyd’s album Dark Side Of The Moon, with a single beam of light shining through a prism and forming a rainbow on the other side creating a simple yet bold look. This image was used to convey the band’s stage lighting as well as the lyrics some of the album’s songs. It also speaks volume that despite the sleeve having no words, most people instantly knows its name and the band behind it.

Nirvana – Nevermind

(Cover can be seen here: http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/features/nevermind-anniversary-nirvana-baby-kurt-cobain-dave-grohl-a7328811.html)

The cover for Nirvana’s album Nevermind was apparently conceptualised after Kurt Cobain watched a programme about water births. After hiring photographer Kirk Weddle to bring the sleeve into reality, the result was an innocent baby swimming underwater towards a dollar bill that was hanging from a fishhook. The rest was history.

Meat Loaf – Bat Out Of Hell

(Cover can be seen here: https://www.discogs.com/Meat-Loaf-Bat-Out-Of-Hell/release/2831488)

The songs featured on Meat Loaf’s Bat Out Of Hell were crazy in a good way, so it was fitting that the sleeve of the record was just as brilliantly wild. Conceptualised by Jim Steinman but actually created by comic book artist Richard Corben, the cover saw a motorcycle powering out of a graveyard while a giant bat loomed menacingly over the tombstones in the background.

Queen – Queen II

(Cover can be seen here: http://www.queenonline.com/en/the-band/discography/queen-ii/)

Music fans are likely to recognise the sleeve of Queen’s album Queen II, as it also features in the music video for the band’s hit single Bohemian Rhapsody. The cover is a simple one, with the four members of Queen standing in a diamond formation upon a black background. Rock, who had enjoyed work with the likes of David Bowie, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop, has since being quoted as saying: “It made them look like much bigger a deal then they were at the time, but it was a true reflection of their music.”
