Newcastle winger Rolando Aarons expected to miss rest of the season

Evolve Menswear: How to look sharp in your first suit

first_imgThe experts from Evolve Menswear, the number one menswear store in the north west, share the rules to finding a perfectly fitted suit.Prom or debs, depending on what part of the country you’re coming from, this Summer will be one of the first times you’ve donned a suit. We’re going to help you through the process with a quick and simple guide to your first suit.Here are two simple rules to get us started:A well-fitted suit makes all the difference.Stick to neutral colours, avoid anything too bold, you don’t want to look like these guys. The Anatomy of a SuitA suit consists of 5 pieces, a suit jacket, suit trousers, a dress shirt, a neck tie and shoes.Your suit jacket & trousers should match in both the colour and the texture. Try to keep the colours simple. Charcoal, navy & grey are good options as they are easily paired with other colours. Black is often another popular choice for prom suits, however, you’ll find it’s less versatile than the other colours mentioned.The Nitty Gritty The fit of a suit is arguably the most important thing of what separates a good suit from a bad suit. Your suit jacket should fit comfortably without feeling baggy or so tight it restricts your movement. The sleeves of your suit jacket shouldn’t go past your hands, and the shoulder seam should sit comfortably across your shoulder, not above or below it. As for length, your jacket should cover most of your trousers zipper, and all of your behind.Your trousers should be a slim straight fit. Again avoid anything too baggy or restrictive. It’s also good to keep in mind that trousers may have to be altered slightly to get the perfect fit.Your shirt shouldn’t match or clash with the colour of your suit. It’s best to stick to light colours like white, light blue or lavender.Your tie should match the width of your jacket’s lapel. Try to avoid colours & patterns that clash with your suit and shirt. Novelty ties are also discouraged.When it comes to shoes, it’s best to keep things simple. It’s hard to wrong with a pair of black or brown Oxford style shoes. Avoid fake leather, over the top designs, and box-toed shoes.Follow these simple rules to look sharp in your first suit, and most importantly don’t forget to have fun and enjoy your night!If you would like any fashion advice just email us at and we will be glad to help!Keep up to date with Evolve Menswear on Facebook: @EvolveMenswearInstagram:@evolvemenswear Evolve Menswear: How to look sharp in your first suit was last modified: May 18th, 2017 by Evolve MenswearShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:evolve menswearFashionmens clothingoccasionwearsuitlast_img read more

first_imgJimmy Harte needs no introduction. A former Letterkenny Town Councillor, county councillor, he is now a Labour Party Senator. He splits his time between Donegal and Dublin when he is not following the Irish soccer team around the world!  What is your favourite place in Donegal and why? Carrick/ Teelin area where my wife is from. Beautiful scenery and a relaxing place to spend some time in.If you could change one thing about Donegal what would it be?To have a Donegal Diaspora invest in the county so that they can help employment and get a return on their money. I know the sentiment is out there to be tapped. Who is the one person in Donegal that you look up to and why?My Dad , after one year in the Senate I now appreciate how hard it was to be in Dail Eireann for 36 years and maintain his passion for politics and with my Mother rear a family of nine.Daniel O’Donnell or Packie Bonner?Both ! ( I’m firmly on the fence here )!!What has been Donegal’s proudest moment in recent years?Sept 2012 !! Croke ParkWhat was Donegal’s saddest moment? The Inishowen road tragedy in 2010.What is your favourite Donegal-made product?Magees of Donegal. They are an international name and hand woven tweeds are the rage with the beautiful people !Who is Donegal’s greatest ambassador around the world and why? It has to be Daniel but Shay is a close second.Who is Donegal’s most successful businessperson in your opinion?I’d say Henry Mc Garvey who is MD of Prumerica and they employ around 900 in Letterkenny.

first_imgFianna Fáil Donegal Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill has labelled changes to the appointment process for Údarás na Gaeltachta as nothing more than ‘Jobs for the Boys’.Senator Ó Domhnaill confirmed that he has not sought a nomination to the new board of Údarás na Gaeltachta after democratic elections to the board was ended this year in favour of appointments by the Government.Senator Ó Domhnaill was first elected to Údarás na Gaeltachta in 1999 and re-elected in 2005. Nominations to the board closed at 5pm today. Senator Ó Domhnaill said: “Today I take the opportunity to call on the Minister of State for the Gaeltacht to appoint the new board members, not based on political affiliation or loyalties, but rather on the set of particular skills that they can bring to the new Údarás. It’s vitally important that the Government move away from a scenario of ‘Jobs for the Boys’ to one of appointments based on merit, ability and experience, irrespective of political affiliation or held beliefs.“I have not sought a nomination as I believe it would be contrary to my belief that democratic elections to the board should be held. Fianna Fáil has, at every turn, sought to have the democratic voice of Gaeltacht residents upheld. Unfortunately, however, the FG/Labour Government have put an end to the democratic opportunity of a voice at the ballet box and instead will appoint 12 members to the new board, through Ministerial appointment of 7 members with the 5 remaining members being appointed through the County Councils of Donegal, Mayo, Galway and Kerry while the Councils of Meath, Waterford and Cork have a rotating position.”Senator Ó Domhnaill continued: “Successive Governments since 1950s have recognised the need for a dedicated Regional Development Agency for the Gaeltacht. Stabilising the economic base through employment generation was recognised as the key to population maintenance and this, in turn, was recognised as the best foundation to achieve language maintenance and growth. This approach will be more important than ever in the challenging and determinative period that lies ahead.“The Government decision to end democratic elections to the Údarás board is hugely disappointing, there is a huge risk that vital voices in the Gaeltacht community will not be heard now.”  MINISTER UNDER FIRE OVER ÚDARÁS APPOINTMENTS was last modified: August 16th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
