Most professional men over the age of 35 will already have at least a rudimentary knowledge of shirt collars and know the differences between 2 and 3 button suits. This book will be of little help to them. For such a man (or the woman who is trying to nudge him toward greater fashionability) I would strongly recommend another titleDetails Men's Style Manual: The Ultimate Guide for Making Your Clothes Work for You. I bought these manuals at the same time and infinitely prefer the "Details" one. It is more colorful and easier to read, flowing more like a magazine than book (not surprisingly) but chock-full of information and helpful photos. We all need help in the "what not to wear/what to wear" department, but especially men.
Buy the Details manual. You (or your boyfriend/husband/brother) will actually turn to it for advice and everyone will be happy.
In eleven lessons, the AskMen team present the basics that our fathers and uncles should have taught us but with a somewhat more modern flair. Learn what to invest in (good shoes and a navy or charcoal interview suit) and what to buy on the cheap (socks and underwear). Learn different knots and folds for ties, scarves, and pocket squares and how to decipher the symbols printed on clothing care tags. Most importantly, learn to buy clothing in cuts, colors, and textures that flatter your style and shape instead of blindly following the dictates of designer labels or the clearance rack.
No one book on any subject could be complete or perfect, and this is no exception. At times minor preferences are elevated to great truths - why the hatred for tri-fold wallets? - and some advice (see watches and cufflinks) may not be financially feasible for the reader.Read more ›
