Some call it style, others a matter of taste - that certain "touch" some men have that lets pick out and combine just the right suits, shirts, ties, and shoes. Actually, there is no trick to dressing stylishly as a man. You just have to become familiar with the tried-and-true classics and their history.

Je to takový historický přehled oblékání. Potřeboval bych spíš nějakého aktuálního průvodce pro běžně smrtelníky a abych nemusel létat na nákupy až do Londýna. Některé pasáže byly docela zajímavé. Bohužel se mi potvrdilo, že dobré oblékání není jen o penězích, ale i o čase, které tomu věnujete. Nejsem anglický gentleman, který na to má lidi.

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.

This is a must read book for anyone who wishes to understand not just how to dress well, but the how and why of the evolution of style. Being a gentleman is far more than dressing w...more

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.
