I bought this book originally in the 1960s. This hardback reprint is an excellent piece of work, it really feels like an expensive book. This is the second copy of this reprint I have bought. I gave one away to a friend.
For anyone with half an interest in men's clothing and fashion the book is an invaluable piece of history. Hardy Amies writes with a style of his own.
The predicit9ons that he got wrong are as interesting and humourous as the ones he got right .

I bought this for a friend who is a style guru, he likes it and it is an accurate reference for men who want to dress properly. It is a classic guidebook. Boys should be made to read this at school! Track suits, trainers jeans hanging off backsides is not classic or stylish or attractive unless youre a girl who also dresses like a tramp.

This book proved a real success to a 70 year old guy who still loves his fashion! Very well presented and the cloth bound edition was a treat

I am so pleased this gem has been re-publish by the V&A. I had an original copy back in the 60's and this has a more appropriate cover. I refer to this book often, it is always on my coffee table and I have also given copies as gifts and they have been much appreciated. A good idea for those who are challenged by what to buy for birthday's, Chistmas and Fathers day.

This is a perfect gift for a person interested in men fashion. Parts of the book as well as the language are a bit archaic but this adds a specific charm to it.

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.
