Format: Paperback
The main reason I purchased this item was for its numerous illustrations. Just about every page has a full color picture of clothes. From a glance I can tell just how long a blazer should be. Or perhaps how long a sweater's sleeves should fall when wearing it over top of a collared shirt.

I use this book as a reference manual on how clothes should fit. Need to buy a new tuxedo? Turn to the formal wear section and read up! It also gives you a few basic ideas on how to wear things. For instance, how to match a shirt and tie with jeans and a blazer. It won't tell you exactly how to wear things but just offer you guidelines with some great pictures.

For the $20 this book costs you get a free 1 year subscription to Details Magazine ($10 value) along w/ a ton of up to date information (Published October of 2007) so it's definitely worth it.

This book should become standard issue for every man after college, if not high school. While style and fashion is a very personal and very individual process, it pays to understand men's clothing.

Chapters are broken down by article of clothing, from shirts, pants, jeans and polos to coats, gloves, hats and leather, everything is covered. And it is all explained in a very direct, excuse me ladies, but man's kind of way, like reading a car manual - almost. It is as good a read all the way through as it is a quick reference guide. In fact, it's as a reference guide that this book really shines. When dressing for any occasion, a quick flip through the book can help you choose the appropriate attire for any event, while feeling both confident in your look and comfortable in your attire.

All in all, men and the women who shop for men's clothing should check this out - especially if you want to start filling your closet with a wardrobe that is ready for anything. Great job, Details.

Covers the basics very well, and gives quite a few ideas on how to change things up. Also includes a card for a free year (or year extention) to a Details subscription. Worth the money.

EDIT: Just went back through parts of the book again, and forgot to mention one key item. There are several points in the book where they suggest a new way/item to try, with 3 different levels of "difficulty", for example, wearing a sport coat with a tie, then a sport coat with jeans, etc. Something I hadn't seen mentioned before, even in their mag, and it's a great idea.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Given all of the positive reviews, I was quite disappointed upon receiving this book. First, be aware, that this book is tiny. Most people don't look at the format of books before they purchase, and you can't tell the books size from the image alone. Because of the small page size, every two pages in this book has barely enough content for one page of a normal book. So, the 267 pages of this book should be considered to be 134 real pages, maximum. Except for the fact that most pages have a page that is just a single bland image opposite to that page (the images aren't very helpful due to the book's small format), and therefore there is only writing on one page for every two pages, on average. This, again, cuts the actual page length this time down to about 67 pages. But wait, it gets worse. Too many pages that actually have writing on them only have 1-3 small paragraphs of 1-3 lines each (3 lines is rare) on the page. Whitespace on each of these bare pages is rampant.

Now, on to the actual content. If you don't understand that you shouldn't buy clothes that are too large or too small for you, that you shouldn't wear sandles anywhere but the beach, that you shouldn't wear torn jeans, that plaid pants are out, that you shouldn't wear a bunch of random patches on your coat, and that you shouldn't wear your pants off of your hips, then this book may be for you. Pick it up and learn how to look like a human being. However, if you want something that goes beyond basic descriptions of clothing (from the book: "cotton sweaters are often overlooked, but they are perfect for cool summer evenings") and want the level of knowledge detail that an actual men's clothing stylist has, then look elsewhere.

Like most other guys, I'm an imbecile when it comes to fashion. Luckily, I realized this recently and started trying to correct the problem. The Details Manual is a book I picked up, seeing that ratings-wise, it was the best selection. I'm really impressed with it. The book contains guides and models on what should be a mans closet; it touches on most subjects regarding a mans wardrobe options: Jeans, Shirts, Blazers, Suits, etc. The book gives you the basic parts of clothes, and how they should fit. I'll use the first chapter (shirts) as an example; first is shirt basics (parts of the shirt: cuffs, collars, etc.), it goes on to shirt options giving a few examples of decently nice shirts, after examples it tells you the characteristics of a perfect fit like how it should feel like when sitting down, from here it goes to collar types, dressing options, a kind of challenge for the chapter (challenges are on every chapter), and finally ends with the don'ts of shirts (EX. Don't unbutton your shirt too far, and it tells you why). I don't really agree with the person who said this book is for 20 to 30 year olds, I think this is a great, standard manual so to speak, for a man at any age, thats my opinion though.
