Where can you find the best boots in Texas, or the perfect English umbrella? Is a custom-made shirt really more expensive than one off the shelf? Would you look better in the shaped tailoring of European designers-or simply foolish? The answers to these and may other questions both practical and aesthetic are found in Bruce Boyer's wonderfully readable book on menswear. The author draws on over a decade of experience as an international fashion commentator to examine the evolution of the male wardrobe garment by garment, uncloud the confusion, and help you decide what is right for you. In addition to the wealth of practical advice on styles, shopping, maintenance, and packing, the author brings a lively sense of history and personality to the writing of this book. The result is a book that is at once practical, delightful, and historical, a guide and source book, illustrated with over 60 drawings, to help you find your way through the expanding and often confusing world of menswear."; 9.30 X 6.50 X 1.20 inches; 279 pages.
