One of Two Definitive Books on Men’s Style

As a web developer, I have recently had a run of men's custom tailoring customers. I found myself looking for an encyclopedic source of styling details and fashion fundamentals.

This book by Bernhard Roetzel’s provided many of the answers. It is a trove of the tried and trusted classics of men’s clothing. In one volume one can find advice on combining familiar patterns, materials, fabrics and colors. Unlike the other book I consulted – Dressing the Man by Alan Flusser – breaks down the details and elements of Italian, English and American styling.

To be sure, there are topics I could have done without – underwear, jewelry, umbrellas, walking canes, tobacco and pajamas, to name a few. However, if you are looking for detailed information about men’s style, this is one of two books to consult. ( )

The generic tips needed for everyday maintenence. Some of the more amusing tips are "how often to wash items of clothing". Still, these are useful tips for maintenence. ( )

Copiously illustrated and well written, although the decision to focus only on certain manufacturers can limit its usefulness somewhat. Nonetheless an excellent introduction to the subject and a handsome book. ( )
