A Book Every Man Should Read
I was first given this book by my girlfriend, and let me say that it contains the most fashionable tips for the every day man! Unlike some books on the vast subject it does not rely on personal opinions, instead referring back to the universal code that every man used to abide by in the early morning when getting dressed for the day. If you're wondering how to tie a certain tie knot, have a question about whether certain colours' match, then this is the book for you. I enjoyed it, and so will you, I'm sure of it. P.S. 'Mr Classic' by Jeremy Hackett is good as well
Publishers Weekly, 2002-08-19 During the past 25 years, men have spent more money on clothing for themselves than in any other period of modern history, says Alan Flusser (Style and the Man). The time has "never been more propitious for the emergence of a standing army of well-heeled swells," he believes, and in Dressing the Man: Mastering the Art of Permanent Fashion, he takes readers on a tour of men's clothing that he attests will never go out of style. Flusser carefully explains how to mix patterns, what to look for when trying on clothes in the fitting room, what kind of jacket to wear with a straight-point collar, the history of the monk-strap shoe, the correct position for a bow tie and what "business casual" really means. Heavily illustrated with photographs of dapper dans from Humphrey Bogart to the Duke of Windsor and drawings depicting neckwear, suit jackets, coat sleeves and trouser creases, this is a superb reference for any man.
