It includes context for each dress code (even some history in a case), handy descriptions for different items, very simple to follow drawings for knots, and simple, but not boring, writing.
The "gentleman maxims" structure of the book writing (that seems to traverse the whole "A gentleman ..." book series from Bridges/Curtis) makes it easy to follow, avoiding extensive paragraphs with flourished text and goes directly to the point without preambles; nevertheless, it makes you require to read the whole book to get the whole picture. It do not has, for example, a chapter describing specifically each dress code as it is structured more over the "gentlemen occasions".
Good edition quality follows perfectly the other books of the series if you want to collect them all.
Turned out to be a great bargain, and a nice surprise that he enjoyed. While he says there was no revolutionary information, it was a good read and great additional resource. Definitely recommended!
There is nothing over the top or self-indulgent in these pages, just light-hearted advice for those of us who need a little help avoiding a fashion emergency. Understanding my vulnerability means keeping this little book at arm's reach on my reference shelf.
The authors understand that a gentleman is loathe to call attention to himself. Good style is a way of allowing one's more important virtues to shine through without the distraction of bad taste.
The world could use a little more of that.
