Alan Flusser's sartorial guide to men's fashion. Flusser focusses on formal wear, with an emphasis on how to dress wellrather than fashionably. The book begins with the 1930s, a height point in men's tailoring and style, and then covers suits, jackets, shirts, neckwear, shoes, accessories, hats and sportswear. Included is a useful and extensive glossary of tailoring terms.
