Overview

While fashion is subject to seasonal change, the wardrobe of the man who dresses in classic style is marked by a distinctive continuity. A Well-Dressed Gentleman’s Pocket Guide is both an etiquette and a history of impeccable dressing and classic styling. It illustrates the fine distinctions of the gentleman’s dress code, arming the reader with the requisite information to dress for any occasion. It covers the entire wardrobe—from suits, coats, shirts, and shoes to umbrellas and underclothing—their history, manufacture, tailoring, materials, patterns, and colors. There are also summary style charts and warnings of classic faux pas. Any gentleman should consider himself incomplete without this elegant and authoritative pocket accessory.

Reviews

“For men whose sensibilities lead them toward classic dress, but whose knowledge is less than complete because of youth or inexperience, there is A Well-Dressed Gentleman’s Pocket Guide. Warnings of classic faux pas alone are worth the cover price.” —From the foreword
