This book is one of several that I credit for teaching me the basics of dressing well and it has been absolutely indispensable in my professional career. I only wish someone had given it to me as a graduation gift.
My only gripe about this book is that Flusser skimps on some details which are made obvious only by their absence. Flusser specifically writes about the importance of color and finding one's personal colors based on the strength of your natural color (skin tone and hair). Flusser goes on to explain how, in ye olden days, men's magazines often had articles discussing and applying color theory to dress and explanations about how one can match clothing colors to personal color to create a pleasing appearance. And that's it. Although he certainly is aware of different theories of how to do these things, they are conspicuously absent from the book.
That's a major failing that I hope will be corrected in later editions or by other works. That said, this book is a good gateway into the world of men's fashion that will give the reader a solid foundation for assembling a timeless and functional wardrobe with plenty of practical tips for doing so.
But as I read, I began to learn about color, pattern, proportion and dress code. When a suit is called for and when a bowler hat is to be worn. I learned about the difference between evening dress and informal evening dress (black tie) and finally mastered a self tie bow tie. Gradually, I started to put a little bit of money aside and improve my wardrobe. Not in a costumey way that would attract unwanted attention, but in a realistic manner that followed from the advice of Mr Flusser. Something that would go well for the large urban area I live in and blend in correctly for the early 21st century. Slowly, my wardrobe changed. A sportcoat here and later a scarf there began to add up until my usual dressing pattern was somewhat changed.
And, how do I dress today? Well, on a Saturday afternoon when I mow the lawn, I still wear my khaki shorts and t-shirt (with holes in it). But, I recently attended an opera with my wife as well and wore a marcella shirt (something I had no idea existed until I read this book). I was even invited to a ball last year with my wife and wore the correct evening dress (white tie) to the event. And I am not a Harvard trained neurosurgeon who sits in my smoking jacket during after hours or a shark of Wall Street who needs $7000 suits. I am a pretty regular dude and if Mr Flusser can help me, he can probably help out most other gents as well. I highly recommend this book and suggest it as good reading if you are possibly interested in seeing a new side of yourself.
