This book is wonderful. It's quite small in size, but packed with witty information. I didn't realize it was a reprint of a book originally published in the '60's, but as you read, it makes sense. It's a perfect book for someone who is interested in the finer and more traditional aspects of men's fashion.

There is a lot to learn about fashion, and this book, although written ages ago, is a good, useful guide ... it is in a dictionary format starting from A to Z, but is a good read ... not long and winding like some of the others ...

This book was originally published in 1964 and sometimes it sounds like it with references to "what will the Beatles wear in the future" and things like that. It was updated in 2007 but many of the references sound dated and were apparently left as-is. It's actually a sort of dictionary with alphabetical listings of style items. It could use more pictures. Photos of the fedora hats look rather ridiculous because they're oddly shaped but "modern" for the 60s. Most of the photos are obviously pictures of 1960s clothing...skinny trousers and even skinnier jackets. Many of the references, though, are timeless as good style is. Even though it has some tiny faults the book is very well written and witty. For instance, the author describes what a deerstalker hat is by saying "Sherlock Holmes can wear one. You can't." The author also does not like trouser cuffs (called "turn ups")! It's a nice reference book to have nonetheless and a nice read.

This is a great book to learn and understand the basics of men's fashion. Some of the comments are a bit dated, and clearly lean towards ideas more prevalent in Europe than in the states. But as a primer on the basics of what is what, and when to wear it...this is a solid reference for your book shelf.

I bought this book after seeing a video about Hardy Amies. Its an interesting book but its not really a reading book like I thought. More of a dictionary of fashion terms. Overall I like the book though. Just not what I thought it was.
