Made To Order Swimwear

Usually swimwear designers have their Idea what design will be made in the next collection. Still sometimes customers have their own ideas.

Few days ago we got a phone call from our customer and afterwards he came to our ware-store to pick some swimwear. But suddenly he decided to order some new combination of colours. So new items were born, new series of practically same design came out.

Customer is a God, and God must be listened. So we made some new swimwear in different colours just for him.

What was born after few days :

Say I Love You in a Different Way

Valentine Day is near. Flowers, candies and chocolates, all kinds of loving expressions in heart shape. These are most likely most common ways to express your love to your beloved person. Very easy if beloved person is a woman. You can’t even miss if your valentine gift would be underwear in red color. But you must know her size. Otherwise you will shoot your own goal.

What about valentine gift if your beloved person is a man ? Honestly I am happy when I get even something. That means I am not forgotten person and am a beloved person. Who doesn’t want to be beloved ?

Candies and chocolates can be eaten in a moment, bottle of good wine would be drunk in a hour. Yes, he would also remember valentine when get a ticket for the concert or sport match.

But what about swimwear as a valentine gift. Not on your primary list ? Why not ? Gift that you will look and admire all sun season long. It needn’t to be in red color, which is honestly, quiet intimate color. It could be in ultra violet which is the color of the Year 2018. And yes, you can choose Martinez Boxer and surprise him.

Natura Parendo Vincitur – we can only obbey the nature

By finding a positive result in every situation. No matter if the situation looks hopeless at first sight.

When we moved living to present location, we were very proud about having our own property. Behind the house we had small piece of land dedicated to the football pitch for our boys, aged seven and eleven. The “pitch” was covered with green grass. Then we met our first neighbour Greg, who seemed to be very nice. Greg had just planted cypresses on the fence line. When we had a chat over the  fence, his talking was like he knew all about gardening and about the life of cypresses especially. We shouldn’t be worried he wouldn’t let the cypresses go over the reasonable height, he was trying to persuade us. We expected that the cypresses would look like the pictures of Tuscany landscape.

As the time went by, cypresses grew and grew, Greg was less and less interested in talking and chatting. When the cypresses were growing, we couldn’t see him anymore, and then we couldn’t even see his house. The cypresses were almost 10 meters high. The cypresses were planted too dense so the sunlight couldn’t warm the ground behind them. Moss was spreading very quickly. Greg was always saying he was looking for a gardener who would cut the trees.

Of course we weren’t happy observing how our football pitch shrank to its minimum.

But as I said Art is when you find a good thing in a bad situation. We couldn’t cut the cypresses since they were on neighbour’s side of the fence. So we used the cypresses as a backdrop for shooting some photos of our swimwear.

This is the result. Storm and Fresco

 

We didn’t argue with the neighbour at all. Last summer surprisingly Greg hired the forester to cut the cypresses for a few meters.

Observing Or Being Observed

Always questionable ? Are being men also observed as they observe women ? Do men notice that they are being observe ? Last week Vittori Swimwear started advertising campaign in Poland through Facebook. Vittori Swimwear is primary attended to get more men admirers as they are potential client. But it turned completely otherwise. More women noticed the advert , more women liked our facebook page. Some would say, men are lazy, they are intersted in other stuff, men are shy. Perhaps so. But still this result forced me to make a conclusion, women do take care what men wear. Women do observe, women do comment, women do make opinion. Men are observed. No matter, being at work wearing business suites or going to out wearing casual.

Also swimwear is important. I heard my step-mother, when we launched our first collection, talking to his husband, my step-father, to get proper beachwear. She didn’t want him to be like other men, wearing really improper swimwear with really awful and old-fashioned design.

So, dear men, it is important to look nice, even if you think it’s not. You are observed. Why not being observed wearing our swimwear ? Rocky Boxer

First Experience with Marketing Expert

Each manufacturer or seller who starts with a production thinks about how to sell his products. Most likely you can’t be an expert for all fields. If you are good in thinking and management you probably do not posses skills for the marketing.

Same happened with me when started company and manufacturing Men’s Swimwear. I covered the management, logistics, finance, other of our company were responsible for design, website. Everything was set up, idea that burned in our minds long time was finally born, fabric was bought, production started, website with online shop was on air.

My anniversary of graduation came on the way, old school-mates gathered as each and every year. One among them was also marketing expert. You know the feeling, when you are young and restless; you expect everything should be done quick and immediately. I came to my “school-mate=marketing expert”, described him my idea and who wouldn’t, I asked him for a help. He answered only with one sentence: “I do not work with start-up or with newly brands.”

Of course I was disappointed. What is real challenge, to make a growth of the product with annual turnover with about 1 mio EUR by let’s say 10-15% or start with something new from zero. Obviously for my school-mate Vittori Swimwear was not a challenge for him. And I realized that I need to find different way, be patient and finally rely on my own feelings and on my own work.

Today after couple of years of that moment, Vittori Swimwear is not anonymous brand anymore; we sell our swimwear to 3 continents, USA, Canada, Australia and many EU countries. Our customers are satisfied and we develop new models. _MG_0293

Vintage or what

What is Vintage really? According to the Wikipedia Vintage is Generally speaking, clothing which was produced before the 1920s is referred to as antique clothing and clothing from the 1920s to 20 years before the present day is considered vintage. Why sometimes on the fashion shows some very famous designers show their creation in vintage style?

Why sometimes when we see some creation or design our first thought would be “Oh, I have seen something like that before”? Because, it’s true. Humans have eyes, humans have memory, human have storage for billions of pictures called brain. Our memory is like a movie camera travelling through the time. Good example is driving a car. Pictures of landscape, trees, fields of crops, green, yellow, brown, variety of mixed colors. Everything is memorized. Even great paintings present the scenes from the nature or nearby and the painters weren’t just stand in their ateliers, some even didn’t have them actually, so they stood their easels outside and painted what they saw.

Pretty much is the same with the designers of all kinds. Some creations are close to our eyes some we think that’s not for me. I would do different, I would something different. ACTUM NE AGAS would say old Romans, what basically mean “Don’t create what’s already created”. And yes, at Vittori Swimwear we went to the shops, we looked up into the web shops to see what we could do different. And yes we questioned many persons, many men advised us what they wanted as their new swimwear. Is our collection or even one of them a vintage style? Perhaps. Honestly we generally only hear what has been worn in 50 or 80 years ago, but certainly we are curious and become nostalgic. That’s why vintage style is always successful. But on the other hand each designer want to make something different than other and still follow it’s own path. So are we.

Perfect Man Is Just A Dream Or Not ?

Who is a perfect man ? I am a man and not consider myself being perfect. Recently I read two books describing perfect men. One is Grey from “50 Shades of Grey” by EL James and the other one is Gabe from “Rush” by Maya Banks. Both books are written by women. Both these men are described as perfect. Tall, very handsome, very rich, top managers and businessmen and young of course. Their bodies are similar to the bodies of ancient Greek heroes. They found very young women to pass along with them.

Going back to the writers of these two books : do they have perfect men already or just seek to have one ? I don’t know. And really doesn’t matter. But they are successful. They write what men and women love to read. They are perfect.

What is perfection for a man anyway ? Being rich, being handsome, being very tall, being very successful, having perfect smile, being charming, being loving partner, being loving father, being best chef ? All together or just few personal characteristics ?

At a dancing school of argentine tango there is a couple, where he is about 30 years older than his partner. He is rich, he is nice, he is a very good dancer. He provides her everything she wants. Is he like Grey or Gabe. I don’t think so. Oh, yes she is very attractive and about 25 years old. In her eyes, he must be perfect. But is he really perfect ? I don’t know, because I don’t live with him each and every moment.

Husband of my wife’s cousin is very handy man. He can fix everything, he is a perfect chef, his fish and barbecue are marvelous. He serves his wife everything she asks. But he is not rich. Is he perfect ? With such so many skills I do not possess, he is almost perfect.

My ex school-friend is not handsome. But he is quiet rich, always on top manger’s positions, powerful person. He’s rarely at home, his business is everything. Is he perfect ? Most likely.

My neighbor is talented person. His debates when barbecueing are to sit down and listen very carefully. He knows everything. His debates are powerfull. But he smokes and drinks too much, he doesn’t worry about tomorrow. Is he perfect ? Maybe.

Many men can be perfect if they have something other men only seek. But if they are really perfect, other men don’t really know, because other men are not with that “perfect man” each and every second. Is finding a perfect man a dream or not ? Every man can be perfect if you find positive characteristics in his skills or in his ideas. Supporting and encouraging him is most important.

Going back to me. I mentioned I am not considering myself being perfect. But I have some skills that other won’t even hear about them. Good in logistics, I have three loving children, loving wife, I am a man who stands behind Vittori Swimwear, and I can even write a blog for Vittori Swimwear. Not to forget I can dance argentine tango and I am not scared to attend milonga anymore.

What’s this blog has got to do with Vittori Swimwear ? Vittori Swimwear helps men being more perfect as they are. Wearing Vittori Swimwear you will feel perfect.
