A book that appeals on two levels. Most of the book is timeless good advice on a gentleman's dress, but the book also has the period charm of a book written in the early sixties. Hardy Amies predicts where men's style will go over the forthcoming years, often with great acuity. He may not have predicted how short-lived some changes in fashion were to be but he frequently sees where the late 60's and early 70's were headed.
Enjoyably opinionated but always knowledgeable. One of the classics tomes on men's style.
