Synopsis

Most certainly not for jeans and t-shirt wearers (unless you have aspirations to break into the upper echelons of society), "The Well-Dressed Gentleman's Pocket Guide" is an etiquette and history of classic styling. It illustrates the fine differences in the gentleman's dress code and will enable the reader to dress for any occasion. It includes summary style charts and warnings of classic faux pas. In the words of an "Amazon" reviewer: 'A nifty little gem of a book that sets us chaps straight on matters of sartorial elegance. The book could be a tad bigger and more detailed, but then it wouldn't be a pocket guide would it! Should you wear a half-brogue or a full brogue? How do I fold my pocket hanky? Cuff links or buttons? Tweeds or linens? But just remember chaps; a real gent must never unfurl his umbrella. If it's raining, an umbrella serves as the ideal implement to hail a cab with. Toodle-pip.'
