A no-nonsense guide to choosing, buying and wearing a suit. This book contains everything the modern man needs to know to look good, whatever the occasion. More
Two generations ago, the suit was the central staple of every man's wardrobe. We all knew what kind of suit we needed, where to buy it, and how to wear it. These days, it's a different situation. Only a minority of us wear a suit to the office, and picking out what to wear for formal occasions has become a minefield.
Few of us are experts on what to wear, and everyone could do with a helping hand. This book lays out the rules of dressing well, so that you know exactly what to wear in any social situation. It'll take you through the suit, from top to bottom, explaining how it's been put together, and why. What's more, it will also tell you how to pick out the best tailoring, and how to tell the difference between genuine quality and flashy rip-offs.
If you're looking for a book on traditional etiquette, then this isn't it. This book is for men who find themselves living in the real world, and who want to know how to make themselves look their very best when it's time to get suited up.
Caution: This book contains some strong language. Not for the very young, or very conservative.
