A useful book for learning THE RULES of men's clothing. Some of the advice is outdated, but the principles remain. Flusser's tips on how to fit a suit into a suitcase are top-notch and will be forever useful.

Unfortunately, I failed to find the author's charmingly acerbic style to be charming throughout.

I'm trying, slowly but surely, to incorporate some of the many, many tips I gleaned from reading this essential treatise on style into my wardrobe. But let's just say that I have a long way to go. I may not be able to afford to shop at the places he recommends, but I can at least take into account some of the good advice he provides on making sure things fit properly. Starting with: you don't wear a large, dummy!

The first 100 pages has some great tips, but the last 300, about where to shop are pretty useless (and by now outdated.)

Very informative regarding the aspects of clothing including tailoring and its general rules pertaining to proper fit and style.
