"Suit sales are on the rise. Men's makeovers are a staple of reality television, and male celebrities retain stables of stylists. Magazine publishers are busily launching male style spin-offs, while business and news titles are just as busy beefing up their coverage of men's fashion and grooming.

I discovered this book by accident because I saw it being cited in so many Wikipedia and other articles. My favorite part is the insert in the center where you can identify the fabrics without having to already know what they're called.

excellent textile resource

por CosmetMktr (Usuário WorldCat publicado 2008-11-26) Excelente Permalink

Good basic fashion resource--most of the book applies to anything--not just menswear. Has color plates insertedne to identify fabric by pattern and visual appearance.

best --and the only--standard reference on this subject

Most fashion writing is awful, but--thank God--this is not a fashion book. I found it to be extremely reliable, succinct, and witty. I recommend it to my students as a reference.

I came to this after getting her other book out of the library. Although it's totally different--it's an encyclopedia--it was a great reference. I double-checked it on the Internet and a lot of this stuff is NOT AVAILABLE on the Internet, which makes it worth having.

An unexpected exception

por CeCeS (Usuário WorldCat publicado 2010-02-05) Excelente Permalink

This is an exception to those awful "how to dress" guides and "manuals of style" that purport to give the last word in menswear and are really just some boring garmento's opinion on which tie goes with which shirt collar. (Does anybody care about that anyway?) It covers absolutely everything....
