In our increasingly informal world, knowing how a man should dress for each occasion has become ever more challenging. So, take the stress out of getting dressed with this invaluable little book. The Perfectly Dressed Gentleman is an indispensable guide through the modern sartorial maze. Witty and informative, it offers practical advice on what to wear on every occasion, from workplace to wedding, from home to holiday. Robert O'Byrne shows you what to look for in a suit, in terms of colour, fabric and fit; learn how to tie a bow ties and the different knots for ordinary ties; find out the best ways to accessorize any outfit; and much more. Not only will you learn how always to look your best, but also how to avoid making fashion faux pas.
