Esquire The Handbook of Style: A Man's Guide to Looking Good Reviews
I have a few handbooks, this is a very small and portable guide but just chock full of info. Ive found all the Esquire special publications as in besides the magazine good stuff and one should have if you want to be the best you can in every area, dressing is after your face, the second most important thing. The fuuniest thing is they refer to the modern shorter length single breasted small collar suit as the Pee Wee Herman suit, and in all fairness, Esquire says "Who knew it would be strutting the runways 20 years later?" but its on a page of its own with a full size pic of Pee Wee, and not explain or considered a must have for those with a decent body for young to middle age professionals.
I've been working on my sartorial skills over the last few months. I read one other book during this time on this topic, but The Handbook of Style is by far the better book. It contains countless images, graphics, asides, tips, and just enough wit that is was an enjoyable read. For most readers, I think they would benefit from reading it through once, but keeping it handy as a reference.
This is a great book! I learned so much from reading it cover to cover. It is an easy read, and funny too! I think that any man could benefit from reading this book, or any woman who wants her man to look better and be more successful.
This is a great general guide to style. It's also a pretty good style guide in a more in-depth sense. It's nothing ground breaking but for the price it was a nice purchase. My only true gripe about this book is I felt it could have used a few more actual pictures instead of illustrations. The book has a nice attractive appearance and I like the textured cover. The black and purple is a nice and has a classy touch to it. While I do wish it had a few more pictures, I am happy I bought it, the hygiene areas covered were particular nice I felt. Even though it doesn't cover anything most men concerned with style wouldn't know, it is a great touch up and reference book. Full of nice tips and a great purchase.
This book is well written and is an easy guide to building a man's wardrobe. It leans on the conservative side of dress. Don't expect any new trends here, the book covers what works and what doesn't. I've referred to it a dozen times in the past month. Esquire has been doing this for years, so you can count on their advice. The state of todays dress is terrible and I hope this book was read by every American male. Are you tired of men in cargo pants with Ed Hardy shirts? Then buy this book. I highly recommend it.
he got voted best dressed in his senior class who's who!
This book can help you achieve a timeless style. One that looks great today and will look great in the future.
Great book! I've used this as a guide to build my entire wardrobe. Knowing what essentials to have has saved me money and allowed me to buy the best stuff to keep for the long haul. I'm confident with my purchases. I wish I'd have known about this book 20 years ago when I was in my 20's starting out in the big city of Chicago!
