This book has all the info about men's fashion that you can't find anyplace else - not on the web, not in other reference books 'because they deal with women's fashion', plus lots of trivia that just makes it a fun read.

My favorite feature were the color plates and the diagrams. This is the only book I was able to find where you didn't have to know the name of the pattern to look it up -- I still can't find reliable textile/fiber stuff on the web (either because it's not in English or it's just wrong). Great for textile/fiber/patterns/etc.

This long-awaited reference book has been worth the wait! The author does a fabulous job of detailing the ins and outs of men's fashion in today's world. A must read for designers, men and the women who love their men to look good!
