Overview

Men's clothes today are confusing—they reflect the multi-task world we all live in, where work is a constant presence and fun is serious business. The old uniforms are gone, with casual work environments, new cultural standards, and increasing global influences, new styles are evolving. In this changing time, Chic Simple Men's Wardrobe makes the myriad options easy, accessible, and inexpensive. The book is divided into four sections of a guy's life: WORK LIFE takes you through everything you need to compete sartorially whether you work at home or in an office, EVERYDAY LIFE reflects today's more casual society and the new dress codes for weekends and after work, OUTDOOR LIFE is a gear guide to both the classics and the tech-advanced sport clothes for golf, tennis, skiing, fishing, hunting, or the gym, and evening wear, whether for a casual dinner date or opening night, is covered in NIGHT LIFE. In addition, you'll learn to:

—dress for an interview or a night on the town
—handle the new corporate casual look
—travel for a week with an overnight bag
—relax when the invite reads "black tie"
—choose the right cut for your body type
—dejunk your closet and recycle the classics you own
—create a low-maintenance lifetime wardrobe

First Aid, a section in the back, turns you into your own valet—stains, starch, ironing are demystified; how to pack and how to shop are deconstructed; and a glossary defines more than 200 terms from "gusset" to "placket."

I found this book extremely informative with its combination of pictures and descriptions. Excellent visual reference for men seeking employment! Definitely a must have for the person who always asks, 'Does this go?'.

Chic Simple bluntly puts men's fashion in perspective. It gives a basic understanding of what every man should look for in his wardrobe. Every Chic man should definately have a copy of this, sort of as a desk reference.

Depends what you are looking for, but I'd say you get both with this! Easy to read, lots of tips with pictures to copy, a perfect gift for that style conscious man...
