it was amazing

Each of my brothers and I received a copy of this book for Christmas a few years ago. "Life-altering" is perhaps too strong a word, but it was instrumental in helping me make the long slow journey from adolescence to adulthood.

Here, you'll learn how to care for a shirt, how to properly pack a suit-jacket in a suitcase, how to properly was your hair - there's almost nothing left uncovered. I particularly enjoy the chapter about shoes.

It's not perfect; at times it can focus a bit too much on English fashion and style, giving it a conservative or even old-fashioned feel. However, it is full of so much good information that a crusty Anglo-centric emphasis can be forgiven. Taken as a guideline rather than a code of laws, you really won't find a better introduction to mens' fashion.
