The days of the Gentleman are slowly ebbing away, despite the efforts of a few committed souls. Mr. Storey is one of them, and in his latest book, he touches on the finer points of the accessories a Gentleman might find in this benighted modern world.

While not as captivating as his first book, this meandering through the world of cuff links and brollies, colognes and such, reads like a living history book; this is the way it should be done, and often he provides the means to get the "right stuff".

I enjoyed the book, and it is something on a night at home I anticipate dipping into. Very well-written, with an easy flow to the words.

NOT a history. It provides historical tidbits here and there but this does not make it a history. As a guide to some of the better things in life it is excellent, however. I enjoyed flipping through the pages and I certainly learned some things. This book almost makes me sorry I don't smoke or drink!

The title is somewhat misleading . This is not a book on the history , development and evolution of gentlmanly accouterment . Not dissapointed but not what I expected or hoped it would be .

Mr. Storey has done it again, and this time with men's accessories.

Do you want to know all about cigars and cigarettes? You will be a connoisseur of both after reading his section on this topic. Would you like to know about fine fragrance, as the importance of what scent a gentleman sprays upon his person is as important as the colour, pattern and fold of his pocket square? Mr. Storey will tell you exactly which fragrances befit the modern gentleman and why--down to their constituents.

This book has all the small details of gentlemanly living--including the sporting life--outlined in detail, from the the choice of one's fowling rifle to where to find the perfect club.

So thorough is Mr. Storey in his instruction that he even tells the gentle reader what food and wine to serve a lady before a grand seduction.

An informative read and quite funny in some places.
