How are Blazers, Sports Coats, and Suit Jackets Different?

October 18, 2017

Confidence is the key to becoming successful at pretty much anything in life. And being well-dressed is essential to this. From top quality fabric to well-designed details, the experienced tailors at La Elite Fashions will have you looking sharp- fast! Stop in today for a fitting at La Elite Fashions shop in Tsim Sha Tsui; you could have your new suit in less than 24 hours!

 

Blazers, sports coats, and suit jackets might look interchangeable, but they’re not. They might be cut from the same materials and even constructed in similar designs, but they are different. Let’s look at each one of them and see the difference.

Before and after for Mr. Hurinui Dion from New Zealand. Look at that smile and transformation!

 

Guys who are insecure often worry about over-dressing, while confident guys understand that dressing sharp is a way to project power, and so are not concerned if people think they’re trying too hard or not. You should always strive to be one of the best dressed men in the room.

 

Suit Jackets are very common worldwide, and also have buttons, but they obviously come with a matching set of pants. This can be confusing for some, “Can you wear the jacket with other pants or jeans?”. A rule to dress by: If you can buy them separately, they can be worn separately. Or simply ask Danny next time you stop by La Elite Fashions- you’ll always leave this shop looking sharp!

 

Blazers have durable brass buttons because they’re historically associated with rowing, sailing and other nautical sports. You’ll almost always see them in a solid color. The blazer highlights your build uniquely, and it is perhaps the most versatile jacket that can be worn. Many people confuse it with the sports coat, but the texture and pattern of the material will tell you the difference.

 

Sports Coats look similar to blazers, but have plastic or leather buttons. If executed well, jeans and a sports coat will give you a sharp look that is casual, yet formal. The other advantage of wearing a well-complemented sports coat is that it offers a number of pockets, lightening your pants pockets.

 

Before dressing up for an occasion, a man should determine the occasion and wear appropriately. A properly selected, and well-fitting blazer, sports coat, or suit jacket will reflect confidence, maturity, and style. At Le Elite Fashions, a custom fit with properly taken measurements is an essential start for your new custom-fit, bespoke suit (or whatever you require!)  Le Elite Fashions also produces high-quality, custom clothing for women as well. Stop on by Le Elite Fashions in Tsim Sha Tsui today!

Technology can be a Pain in the Neck – Literally

October 18, 2017

 

Checking social media, texting and emailing on phones, tablets, and even laptops can cause major muscle problems and neck pain- sometimes referred to as “Text Neck”. Applied properly, Pilates can improve neck strength and aids in correcting posture issues as well as improve balance, flexibility and core strength. Polestar Pilates Asia, established in 2001, produces high-caliber Pilates instructors and is considered to be one of the world’s leading institutions that offer instruction and certification program in Pilates techniques. Every Polestar-educated Pilates instructor is highly capable of helping you feel rejuvenated and strong once more.

Text, emails or social media take a lot of time in your everyday life, and your neck muscles just aren’t designed for this. Your neck is designed to support an upright posture, so looking down at an angle for long periods of time can cause strain. It also puts more pressure on your neck, which can travel down into your shoulders and back. The human head weighs about 5kg, but different angles can make it feel heavier. Looking down slightly at a 15-degree angle, is like your head weighing 12 kgs. At a 60-degree angle, it is like the head weighs 27 kgs, and this is typically the position most people use when checking their phone. Multiple this damage by the number of hours spends using a smartphone, and you see why “text neck” is occurring more frequently.

 

Polestar Pilates Asia can help you become an experienced instructor and help others improve their neck pain (and many other injuries) and feel strong again. In the beginning stages and not sure where to start?  Polestar has designed a program just for you– Gateway Pilates Courses. The genius is in the education structure and multimedia support materials, which give you a simple yet complete introduction to a profession that can bring you joy, professional satisfaction and an opportunity to earn money. After graduation, Polestar Pilates allows you to continue with seminars and continuing education courses so that you can always be on top of the latest Pilates news. This is a strong community with Pilates instructors all over the world, that you can be a part of it and enjoy the mental and physical rejuvenation that comes with it.

Music Theory: It’s Never Too Late to Learn!

October 18, 2017

Music is a collection of organized sounds that tell stories, convey emotions, arouse feelings, and entertain. Musicians need to learn Music Theory, the components of music and its building blocks such as notations, notes, scales, rules of harmony and ear training. Once the basics have been mastered, and after lots of practice, the best place in Asia to turn to for advanced training is with the Asian Youth Orchestra. The Asian Youth Orchestra is Asia’s premier pre-professional orchestra, which offers opportunities for advanced study, performance and international concert touring experiences

 

The Importance of Music Theory

Music theory provides a way to name what we are doing and intentionally to reframe and create new musical ideas. Music theory also facilitates the coordination and collaboration of a pianist, guitarist, violinist, trumpet players, and other instrumentalists. Those who study theory obtain a professional command of the basics required to advance their development and exploitation of various contemporary music genres. It is possible to play and work as musicians without learning the basics of theory, but don’t shy away from learning.  Music Theory has many multiple benefits and will move your career forward. Here some things that the right education could do for you:

Writing Music Down

The ability to hear music using your ear and write it down is must have skill. Writing makes music shareable and assisting you in playing it just as the composer intended.

 

To write music down, you have to study common notation. It’s is easy to learn, and the system is used by all musicians all over the world. By studying with the Asian Youth Orchestra, you’ll learn how to write music quickly, and participate in its composition.

 

Music Theory Enhances Music Performance

Rhythm, harmony, and melody collectively enhance any performance. By studying music theory, you’ll become familiar with these basics of music that distinguish different genres.  Advanced training on these core concepts will also aid established musicians. A deeper understanding of music theory helps the musician create sophisticated ornaments by knowing when to vary pitch and durations.

 

Create Music Accurately from Your Ideas

Getting stuck happens to every musician, but those with a good grasp of music theory, musicians can better articulate what they hear. For example, music theory teaches you to name the function of the chords, giving you a way to train your ear to quickly figure out the exact names of chords being played.

 

Venturing into music theory can feel complicated and intimidating; but with time and lots of practice, it can be mastered. If you are an avid musician, then follow #AYOHK on Facebook and Instagram for announcements for the 2018 Asian Youth Orchestra Auditions. You might be one of the lucky participants to get selected!

The Key to Social Media Success is Organic Content

October 18, 2017

Every business or startup wants to succeed with their social media marketing, but what’s the secret? There is no magic “easy” button, but there are some tried and true methods that can help you improve your social media reach. To plan success for your business and guide you clearly through the social media world, Prosperity Research Digital Agency (PRDA), may be exactly what your business needs. As Asia’s leading social media agency, PRDA provides services such as SEM, SEO, Social CRM, Risk Management, Lead Generation and much more.

 

Content will always be king. Content dictates how your brand interacts with your audience– a discussion that will ultimately guide them into becoming a customer. In the last couple years some business have lost their trust in organic content, due to both an increase in competition (making it harder for their brand to be heard) and because of algorithm changes.

Most notably the ever-changing algorithm of Facebook’s News Feed, where the boost for personal posts has decreased the reach for brand content. Facebook users find this appealing as it enables them to only see the very best and most relevant content in their News Feed. But this creates a challenge for business, on how to get their social media marketing delivered to potential customers.

 

What is Organic Content?

Organic content can refer to blog posts, podcasts, videos, photographs, presentations, whitepapers and infographics that are designed and/or written by you or by your businesses social media marketing team. Once this content is placed on your website it will then be recorded by a Web crawler, sometimes called a spider, which is an Internet bot that systematically browses the World Wide Web and will then be listed by search engine sites. This will make them accessible when potential customers “google” something– conducting a search using a particular keyword(s). Organic content has been proven to receive a higher level of visibility since search engines prioritize them. The more original content you have, the more visibility you’ll have to your audience.

 

The robust and active social media community amongst various social media platforms can be extremely time-consuming.  While paid advertising can give you temporary desirable results, you don’t want to spend all your marketing resources here. Paid fans rarely last-long term.

 

If you want to ensure that your content will be interesting, relevant and engaging, make sure that you will seek the help of PRDA. They have the right experience, skills, and expertise that will guarantee that you will stay on top of your digital marketing. Click here to learn more about PRDA’s full social media strategy.
