Sartorial Primer From Alan Flusser

Dressing The Man: Mastering The Art Of Permanent Fashion is one of those books every man should own. Other than having your own personal style mentor, this is the next best thing.

Alan Flusser has been in the style game for as long as I can remember and has no shortage of credentials. But all that means nothing if the information is not useable. In Dressing The Man, seeks to guide the sartorially minded initiate away from the fluctuations of the fashion world and towards genuine style.

By understanding, such essential rules as the relationship between lapel width and tie width, how to dress the hand as well as mixing a variety of patterns among so many other staples of style, one never becomes a fashion victim who relies on others to inform them but can readily make an informed decision and occasionally break the rules with confidence.

All three books are available from fine booksellers everywhere. Shop around as prices can vary.

Among other offerings are Style And The Man which helps us navigate the details with the dos and don’ts of buying and wearing quality clothes and how much you should be spending on them. Also, look for the upcomming book Ralph Lauren:An Illustrated Biography by Flusser.
