One of the distinguishing features of a quality tie, other than the color, the design, the material and the
texture, is the cut of the tie. It is the cut that decides the symmetry of the tie. Almost all ties incorporate exactly 45 degree cut. This angular orientation ensures that the tie falls in just
the right way after being knotted at the neck. If the angle is either less than or more than 45 degrees, then there is a strong tendency for the tie to twist when falling. Some relatively
expensive ties are made with the cut running across the material. While this method gives more professional results, there is greater wastage of cloth. This mode of cutting the tie is commonly
referred to as ‘on the bias’ cutting and minimizes the chances of the tie folding upwards from the tip when worn.
The essence of a tie is a casual but neat descent from the knot at the user’s collar to the tip of the
tie at the user’s belt. Only a judicious cut can do justice to a tie as even the best ironing or fabric cannot ensure a good fall well if the cut angle is not perfect.
Did you see a friend wearing a handbag embossed with her initials? Well, that is a monogrammed handbag. Monogrammed designs comprise one or two letters, typically the initials of a name, which are generally engraved on clothes, shoes and purses, with monogrammed handbags being a rage these days. Monogramming isn’t a recent phenomenon, though. Brands like Chanel and Gucci have long been embossing their initials on their creations as a measure to create further brand awareness.
So if you like to follow the monogram trend, there is good news! Simply place your orders through online retail sites and get your initials monogrammed on your favorite bag. Monogrammed bags are great gift ideas too; especially at weddings, birthdays, or graduations. Designers have found attractive places on the handbags to emboss the monograms. So don’t be surprised if a ‘P’ hangs in there instead of a buckle, or an ‘R’ finds its way on the strap. Monogrammed handbags are also a great way to break away from the routine handbags. All you need to do is choose a bag from the many styles available - hobos, totes, messengers, and evening clutch purses; each of these bags can be monogrammed.
