Synopsis

While fashion is subject to seasonal change, the wardrobe of the gentleman who dresses in classic style is marked by a distinctive continuity. This book illustrates the fine differences in the gentleman's dress code and arms the reader with the requisite information to select the finest quality items and dress for any occasion. It covers the entire wardrobe - from shirts and ties, to hats and handkerchiefs; from socks and shoes, to umbrellas and underwear. Each is accompanied by a concise overview of their history, manufacture, tailoring, materials, patterns and colours. Etiquette and warnings of classic faux pas are also given, often to amusing ends. Any style-conscious man should consider himself incomplete without this definitive pocket accessory.
