This is the second edition, published some 10 years after the author created his first version. I own the first version and could not fault it. I have to say the same about the second, a few sections from the first book have been removed, but this version adds more detail, more aspects of style, and even more quality.

Ak je nejaká kniha, ktorá by nemala chýbať v knižnici žiadneho muža, je to Opravdový gentleman. Jednotlivé kapitoly sú prierezom histórie, vývoja, súčasných trendov, nápadov čo s čím kombinovať, informácii o údržbe, obchodoch, postupe výroby na zákazku a tak ďalej. Bohatý foto materiál a vyčerpávajúce informácie robia z knihy skutočnú bibliu pánskej klasickej módy.
