5.0 out of 5 stars Great tips and worth the money.
A great little book with most of the things you will need to know. Everything from how to press a pair of trousers to what to wear at Ascot. Well worth the small amount of cash.

2.0 out of 5 stars A guide not for gentlemen
Very disappointed with this, far too scant on detail with far too much repetition.
From this you will learn what type of shoe to wear with which suite, but if you don't know your Oxfords from your loafers, you'll be just as lost as when you started.
The book may be cheap, but you'd be better putting your money toward one of the heftier tombs on this important...

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, 10 July 2014
By 
This review is from: Butler's Guide to Gentleman's Grooming (Hardcover)
This is an entertaining and informative reading.
The value of this kind of book is in the fact that men are notoriously bad at transmitting habits and rituals from one generation to the next. And these rituals and habits can also be acquired without being someone's heritage, so this is a useful book.
As earlier reviews pointed out, it might not be completely comprehensive, but it still gives important pointers for a young man who needs to know the basics of grooming.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grooming; but not for gentlemen, 6 Jun 2011

This review is from: Butler's Guide to Gentleman's Grooming (Hardcover)
On the positive side there are some real gems about how one should dress for certain occasions and some top tips for the care and storage of one's garments. However; this publication is more suitable for the great unwashed who have no idea what sartorial elegance is...and those who consider underwear-exposing jeans and trainers to be the high of fashion. To these I say take careful note of the section on personal hygiene. Do think on.
