On a diet – the dos and don’ts of dieting

Oh, what a complicated task it is, to diet. It’s necessary, you can’t argue with that, but damn is it hard not to cheat. Even so, when you compel yourself to stay faithful to your task, you might still find it extremely hard to get the job done. That’s because dieting means more than just eating this and that instead of something else. It’s about how you eat when you eat, and other such details. Respecting these details is how you differentiate losing weight in a year from being able to lose weight in a month. Before you start your diet or if you’re trying to jumpstart a failed one, keep these things in mind:

Made To Measure and Made To Order - The New Fashion Formula - From Sheep to Suit

Made To Measure and Made To Order - The New Fashion Formula - From Sheep to Suit

The global men's fashion supply chain is driven by large brands which dictate styles, materials and prices. Traditional contract manufacturing for these brands operates under price-based competition. In order to break out of this dead end, Richmart, the most modern made-to-measure men's suits factory in Eastern Europe, decided to reconfigure its entire supply chain. The managers undertook a detailed Thinking Process analysis of the supply chain, based on the principles of the Theory of Constraints and decided to move towards a win-win partnership between all parties involved from the wool through fabric, machinery and equipment to sewing factories and fashion consultants to the consumer. The Sales Director of Men's Fashion Group Dean Manev and Martina Martini (Art Director) made a presentation about Made To Measure and Made To Order services during the International TOCICO conference in Berlin, Germany on 19 July.
