Brad Hooper
For the elegant man, an elegant book. Big in format, beautifully presented, this guide to dressing swell is based on the old adage that clothes make the man. To show what "you're" made of, take heed of these two fashion experts' spirited words on formal and casual clothes, words that range in topic from the principles of weaving cloth and the characteristics of different kinds of natural fabric (wool, cashmere, linen, cotton, and silk, among others) to more advanced points of discussion, including differentiations in the cut of a jacket (English, American, Italian, French, and German), rules of tailoring, successful matching of colors and of fabrics (perhaps the most difficult task in dressing well), and that important and often misunderstood concept, accessorizing. Tips on care and maintenance of the wardrobe round out this stunning and helpful book.

This book represents the most comprehensive account of what every man should know and want to know about dressing and care and maintainance of his attire.. From the basics to the most minute detail in virtually every imaginable issue. I am of the view that it is imperative that every man should acquire a copy regardless of his means or position in life.
