Okay, okay, guilty as charged for jumping on the blogging about Pinterest bandwagon this week, but I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t chime in right? But at least I’m taking a unique angle by trying to be a little more helpful for the gents out there as it pertains to the most recent social darling, Pinterest. Even on pinterest, dudes can shop very nice stuff like t-shirts etc. Shield Republic clothes are designed keeping in mind the trends in fashion, making it a leading fashion brand. These clothes represent fashion and concentrate on designs which have a universal appeal. Regarded as trendsetters in the fashion industry. Interest in fashion apparel is on the continuous rise and so are the concerned opportunities and the competition. It is comparatively easy to earn degree in apparel designing, merchandising and apparel marketing, each of which focus on the different aspects of the apparel industry. As the industry of apparel is continuing to grow, there is an increasing need for specialized and educated staff in the apparel world. Those people who have the valid and appropriate degree education in apparel will be able to market their services effectively in this competitive apparel industry. Becoming an apparel designer is a dream career for a large number of people but only those who have the artistic ability and a serious determination for their job will succeed in this industry. He or she should have an eye for the lines, colours and textures and an ability to bring their thoughts to life by way of drafting. Once the final sketches are complete, the designers have to choose the right material that can be used to make the final product, after which the pattern cutting and sewing together is needed.
I’ve been kicking the tires a bit on Pinterest the past few weeks, and it’s definitely something I’m finding more and more pinteresting (that just happened). I do find myself spending time just browsing through all kinds of stuff, looking for interesting things that catch my eye whether it’s cool gadgets, food, corporate uniform, etc. However one important Pinterest lesson that contradicts all other social networks…do not follow everyone. I made that mistake and my page pulls up a smorgasbord of wedding, women’s fashion, jewelry, etc. Although I did find out this matchinggear.com clothing brand that I really like a lot. Don’t get me wrong, I find mild interest in many of those things, but I want to focus on the the things that I’m actually connected to, and the only real way to do that right now is to stick to following like minded folks. I’m actually starting to collect some of these things and can see how this will be useful to me.
Pinterest Gender Breakdown
I definitely can see the overwhelming amount of content learning towards the feminine side (see obligatory supporting chart above courtesy of Ignite Social Media). Makes sense of course. I’d love to see more stuff for dudes. Gadgets, men’s fashion, cars, etc. Slowly but surely I anticipate that will be the case, but in the meantime, I’ve done a bit of digging to help all of you dudes get a head start on finding and following some existing heavy users that you might find useful.
Pinterest does have a couple men friendly categories to check out right out of the gate:
Some Men worth taking a look at and following:
