Overview

Who makes custom-tailored shirts in New York? Where should you go for a professional shave? Why are shoes among the most important features of a man's wardrobe? How do you tie a four-in-hand knot? And where do the rich and famous purchase their clothes when they are in the world's finest cities?

Some people call it style, others call it taste — that "feel" some men have that helps them select the right suits, shirts, neckties, and shoes every time. All the same, dressing stylishly is not an art; you just have to know a little about the tried and trusted classics of men's clothing — where they come from, how they are made, how and when to wear them.

Gentleman's Guide is a treasure trove of information about the fashion icons who have created modern style, with plenty of advice on individual combinations of familiar patterns as well as materials, fabrics, and colors, alongside many useful tips and addresses. It brings together in one place the sort of help normally found scattered through men's style magazines and fashion columns.

From your necktie (and how to knot it) to your shoes (and where you can have them custom made); from your underwear to your tuxedo; from your Barbour jacket to your sunglasses — this book describes in detail everything you will need to dress like the gentleman you are. Gentleman's Guideis lavishly illustrated and contains numerous stories about famous and fashionable gentlemen.

Show you've got taste; select the perfect outfit for work or leisure; harmonize the accessories you use every day; and shop with a connoisseur's eye, thanks to Gentleman's Guide — the book that has style.

    Excellent insight into leading a life with class.

    Being a fan of understated class -when you actually possess class, there's no need to tell everyone that you have it- I've always had questions that noone seemed to be able to answer for me. This book does that very well. Included is everything you ever wanted to know -along with excellent pictures- regarding such things as the right ways in which to tie a tie, which shoes/watch is proper with what types of clothing, to proper etiquette regarding the use of a flask. (*It's pretty obvious that this book must've been required reading for every actor who ever played James Bond.)
