My Favourite ShirtPosted: Monday, April 15, 2013 at 2:15:51 PM EST by Richard Norris
Like many people, I have a favourite shirt.I wear it more often than any other of my shirts, I like the colours, it fits well and I look awesome in it (if I don't say so myself). I am wearing it as I am writing this post.
Although, this particular shirt hasn't always been my favourite shirt. I have had numerous favourite shirts in fact. As time has changed, I have grown in size and my taste in clothes has changed. Therefore, my favourite shirt has changed.
The point is, I wouldn't know that this shirt would be my favourite shirt unless I tried it on and, obviously, bought it.
Social media can be a daunting subject for some people. Just because of its importance to business in this technology based aged doesn't mean it is simple.
However, just as I had to try on my shirt and buy it for it to be my favourite, social media may be the same.
Social media may be your favourite form of marketing or even your favourite business tool. But how would you know that it is your favourite unless you tried it on.
Social media could be the worst thing you put your hands on, but the point is that unless you try you will never know.
I wasn't sure if I liked my favourite shirt as it hung on the hanger in the shop. It wasn't until I tried it on that I started to fall in love with this shirt.
Are you willing to risk missing out on all that social media can offer your business because you're not sure about it?
Or would you rather try it on and see what happens?

The cue card question
Describe a favourite item of clothing.
You should say:
what it is
when you bought it
why you bought it
and say why you like it so much.

I’m not really that into clothes. I do try and look fairly smart but I’m not that bothered by my personal appearance and the clothes I’m wearing. But I will tell about my favourite article of clothing – my leather jacket. That is by some distance my favourite piece of clothing.
What it is and looks like
It’s a fairly normal or regular leather jacket. The one unusual feature I suppose is that it has white stripes down the sleeves. It’s also quite well-worn by now because I’ve had it some time and I tend to wear throughout the winter months. In fact it’s got quite a few little tears where it’s caught on sharp objects. I still love it though and I don’t mind at all that it looks rather second-hand.
When I bought it
I bought it at least 5 years ago now. It came from one of those big department stores and not a specialist leather shop. My old coat was very shabby and I was told by my girlfriend that I definitely needed to buy another one – I think she was embarrassed to be seen with me.
Where I bought it
So I went out by myself. I think it must have been sometime in January when the New Year sales were on. My girlfriend wanted to come with me and help me choose something smart but I said I would do it by myself. We shop in very different ways. She always wants to try everything on and can spend hours buying nothing. My approach is quite different. If I see something that I like and it fits I buy it. She might be two hours in a shop while I normally only take 15 minutes.
Why I bought it
Anyway I saw this jacket and I thought that it looked really cool. I had always secretly wanted a leather jacket and because the sales were on and it was reduced by 50% I just bought it. My girlfriend was really shocked when she saw what I had bought.
Why I like it
I like it because it’s different – it;’s just not like any other clothes I have in my wardrobe.
