Style and the Man

by Erynn

I may be biased, but I think that my husband is one of the most stylish men around.

My colleague, @GillianeWise, even joked that if we were to have kids, they’d look like this:

Now after reading Style & the Man, my husband knows a few classic rules of men’s fashion.

 Like how men should wear coat sleeves.

    And how to fold a printed silk square.

And this one came in handy for our wedding day: how to wear suspenders.

The author of this book, Alan Flusser, is one of America’s foremost menswear designers.  He’s been designing and selling men’s clothes for more than thirty years.  Style and the Man is his essential guide for buying fashionable and long-lasting clothes. Read it and find out answers to these things and more:

What’s the difference between a $395 and a $1,000 suit?
What two words do you need to look for on a costly dress shirt’s label?
What are the folds in a cummerbund for?  What is a cummerbund?       

Stores where you can buy a copy of Style and the Man:

Stein Mart, various locations

The Homestead Spa and Resort in Hot Springs, VA

Tabula Rasa Social Stationers in Salt Lake City, UT

Proper Topper, a gift and accessories shop in Washington, DC

What do you think? Would most men find this book useful? And are we in agreement that my husband is pretty fashionable? 😉

  1. I didn’t know you started a blog! i love it. Also, great post. Scott needs a copy 🙂 xoxo – congrats – I love this idea and you’re the perfect person to write this!

  2. I love how you weave the personal into your blog… more more more! I feel that there are so many books on style for women, that I get held back by not knowing where to begin choosing. I love this book for men… it’s got weight to it, and seems practical.
