James said: Superb book on how a man should dress. Covers the basics Alan Flusser’s name is synonymous with taste and style. With his new book. The full title of the book is “Dressing the man – mastering the art of permanent fashion” and content-wise this is quite different from books.

Dressing the Man: Mastering the Art of Permanent Fashion

Published inthis is a timeless tome indeed. This is not a book to be taken lightly!

This one is all about instruction, history and Rules. Yes, Rules, what a gentleman does and does not, in a sartorial way. Where there is room for innovation and cheekiness dresxing where the Rules are set in stone.


Yes, this is a tne world from the one we regular chaps inhabit, this is where the serious grownups roam. Tips on fit are universal and good to know.

How long should the arms of a jacket be, which type of collar works best for the shape of your noggin, which colours work best for your fine complexion?

This is the world of suits for occasions, knowing your tie knots, matching the patterns of your blazer and slacks and really, knowing the cues of how men dress. Heres a few sample pages:.
