Luxury cars: Bentley Continental GT VS Rolls Royce Phantom

Here, two of the most elegant and expensive cars in the world. Both of them have origin in UK, being currently Volkswagen the Bentley’s owner.

In my opinion, RR is more classical, comfortable (almost seeing it, because I have never been sited in RR or Bentley) and elegant. But, Bentley is younger, faster and sportive.

Now, with the cars’ features you can think about what is your favourite luxury car.

How to tie a tie?

I just have read my posts and I see that a suit’s blog doesn’t have any post about how to tie a tie. That’s impossible! O.K. Come on, I am going to show one of the most difficult tasks that you must do when you suit up.

I am sure that if you don’t read this post, your tie will look like:

nudo-humor

Single ended bow tie:

It’s a classic. It is the most used by the people because it is simple and look well with every kind of tie and shirt. It is recommended for middle-size men.

nudos-de-corbata

Preparation:

Turn up the collar of his shirt, button closure and readjust his tie.

Stage

Step 1: Below the neck, you have to across the widest part over the narrow further down the neck.

Step 2: Slide the wide part below the narrow part.

Step 3: Fold the wide end over the narrow part.

Step 4: Pass the wide end over behind the tie putting his index finger on the knot being formed. Remove finger and slide the widest part inside the knot.

Step 5: Hold the narrow part, immediately gently pull the wide part to close the knot. Adjust the knot, then upload it to the last button neck.

Once the knot is made , the narrow part should not be seen and the tip of the wide end should be at waist level.

Double ended bow tie:

The double knot is very similar to simple knot, is distinguished by its second wind, to begin the widest part is passed twice around the narrowest part.
With a thicker appearance than the overhand knot, double knot ideally combines with almost all the shirts. Also it is perfect with almost all least thick ties too.

Preparation:

nudo-doble

Slide the tie around the neck after closing the last button and raised the collar of his shirt.
The two sides of the tie are placed asymmetrically. The widest part is left longer than the narrow end of the tie.

Stage

Step 1: Below the neck, the first time to spend an environment widest part of the narrow part (see step 1-3 simple knot).

Step 2: Spend a second time the broad side of the narrow part environment.

Step 3: Raise the wide end up under the tie and slide the knot formed by the first or second rotation.

Step 4: Finally you adjust knot obtained, upload and center in the middle of the neck.

And finally…

The Windsor Knot

The Windsor knot is the knot for special occasions. Very English, its name comes from the Duke of Windsor who popularized it.
The Windsor knot is very bulky, so you must perform preferably on wide necks.
Sometimes complex to perform, to successfully obtain this knot, it should fall between the two sides of the neck and hide the top button of his shirt.

nudo-windsorPreparation:

Slide the tie around the neck after closing the last button and raised the collar of his shirt. The two sides of the tie are placed asymmetrically. The widest part is left longer than the narrow end of the tie.

Stage

Step 1: Cross the wide end over the narrow part. Keep the crossing, and next, make up the broad side buckle under the tie and folding.

Step 2: Bring the wide end toward the other side of the crossing under. Make another buckle up the widest part of your tie and folding.

Step 3: Moving from the broad side horizontally across the narrow part.

Step 4: Moving vertically under the broad side tie, stretch and slide down the broad part of the buckle.

Step 5: Keep close hand, pull gently on the wide part to readjust the tie, center the knot and up through the neck.

Cannibalization Effect: Self-Competition

The dynamic markets are distinguished for the high level of competence in the companies. This is the reason because the big firms are continually bringing to market new products or different varieties of the same product. Those products are often noticed similar to the previous models. If this incident happen, maybe the old sales transfer to the new product, without raise the overall sales.

Gillette_Fusion_vs_Fusion_ProGlide

In practice, we have the razors example: All the razors have the same objective, to shave

without irritation. There are few possibilities for the pricing. The cheapest razors will be the disposable and the most expensive the electrics with gel. If Gillette® brings a new razor blade (Fusion Proglide) gel battery and it took longer on the market with the same features (Fusion), it is possible that customers before spent money in Gillette Fusion, now the could buy Gillette Fusion Proglide without incurring an increase in the total demand for the two products at once.

There are two types of cannibalization, positive and negative:

  • Positive: you want to sell a more expensive and advanced product influencing customer perception. For example, when computers get a more advanced chip.
  • Negative: if your sales down when you bring a new model or the differential gain is less than the opportunity cost of invest in rates.iPad_chomping_windows

One example could be the iPad Mini VS iPad. You can see the illustration if you click here or accessing at: http://techcrunch.com/2012/10/31/the-ipad-minis-cannibalization-effects-overpowering-or-overblown/.

I wish you have understood the cannibalization effect and if you have any questions, you can ask me in the comments, Facebook or Twitter. You can find my contact clicking on About.

Suiting up your behavior. Protocol in UK

This time I will not write about “exterior suits”. I am going to focus in the “interior suit”, your manners. It is important to know alike you don’t behave with your friends like with your boss, you should not behave the same way in Spain (or another country) and United Kingdom.

vintage_sucio_reino_unido_corbata-r020a865b6f7941c6bb24f304ae782484_v9whb_8byvr_512If there is a quintessential country where the Protocol is capitalized, it is United Kingdom. Its proverbial correction, the friendliness of the police (the famous “bobbys”), its “fair play” in sports… all these make it a polite country.

English people are normally shy, they often are “themselves”. Almost never raise their voice or show their displeasure or anger. Maintain composure and keep their good manners, even in the most adverse situations.

In England, you should be discrete and you must avoid raise your voice. Also, you have not to be excessively friendly with your interlocutor. Confidence is getting slowly.

Very Important: You can only wear striped tie in few occasions. Usually people who belong to a college or club use to wear striped tie.

Introductions

The introductions always must be made by residents. The sequence is the same as in Spain and another countries (gentleman to lady, young people to old people…).

We will shake the hand to the person you meet. If someone asks you “How are you?” or “How do you do” (in an introduction) you should not answer “I am fine, thanks” or “It’s OK”. You would response with the same question you just have been asked.

Apellations

Most commons are Mr, Mrs and Miss. Also used: Duke, Marquis, Earl, Viscount, Baron, Baronet and Knight. Duke is named Duke, and his wife is the Duchess. Marquis, Earl, Viscount and Baron are Lords. For finishing, Baronet (hereditary) and Knight (during his lifelong) are sirs and their wives are ladies.

Eating

You should not put your hands on the table, only the right one. The left hand has to be on the lap.

You must bring the spoon to your mouth sideway.

Others

You can only talk about you when you are being asked.

Do not criticize The Royal Family.

Don’t forget to use the expressions “Yes, please” and “No, thanks” for everything.

And… ultimately, don’t forget the punctuality, the famous British Punctuality.

I hope this post helps you. Thank you for the reading.

When do you must suit up?

I would like to talk about the best occasions for suit up. People think that suits are only for weddings and funerals, but TV tell us when do you have to suit up.

1. Spying

martini-james-bond

You can’t realize important top secret missions in jeans and shirt. It isn’t serious. Where you hide the gun, mobile phone, the car remote control, grenades, parach… Nice, everyone knows what 007 bring in his suit.

2. Receiving an award

19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Show

You have win a prize, you are awesome. Your clothing must be awesome. Also you can be a young millionaire and wear which you want.

imagesBut you don’t have my respects, Zuckerberg.

 

 

 

3. Manage the Mafia

1231833293_0

 

You could try managing one criminal association wearing sport, but “La famiglia” may stop trusting in you. The leader doesn’t dirty his hands, that’s for hitmans.

4. Singing

frank-sinatra-2

 

I think I have not to say why Frank Sinatra was so elegant. Suit up, wherever you are, Frank.

5. Sleeping

tumblr_lg4c0yaG6M1qfqzino1_500

 

You only imagine your beautiful neighbor knocking at the door in the night, and she (or he) watch you wearing a shabby (and comfortable) bathrobe. What is she going to think about you? It’s better you don’t take risks and suit up at night too.
