The book contained many things I already new. Anton’s writing style is enjoyable, and there were plenty of similarities with The Prince which was enjoyable to read, especially the final chapter. However, antongiaavanni the book was relatively boring. I feel anyone picking it up already knows how to dress, and for antongiavannk who don’t, it is not sui suitable introduction to men’s style, and readers will become lost within the words.

Well, not according to Antongiovanni. You wear it a few times a year unless it’s a job requirement.

You don’t wear it out in the streets, because dry-cleaning can get expensive. In fact, when I first saw this book while taking a walk antongavanni Manhattan, I thought ‘how much could possibly be written about this?

It even talks a bit on proper maintenance, the differences between ‘bespoke’ and ‘made to measure’, and what shoes to wear. Overall this book made me more aware of what I should be looking when I enter a Brooks Brothers.

The author gives useful and helpful hints on what to wear and why. Wntongiavanni book describes from what worsteds a person should own and what patterns and suit types each type of person should wear as well as giving an explanation of why they should wear a certain pattern or cut of fabric.

However, I feel a little less time could have been spent on this topic, or it given its own section in the book. There were more than enough examples given and after you looked up what he was discussing if you reread the section there is a perfectly illustrated example. May 08, Bjorn rated it liked it. Good read and the author is mainly on the point and gives good advice.

It is written in the style of the Prince, which is kind of funny and doesn’t detract much.

However, the author does not contribute anything that has not been better written in other books, “Dressing the man” by Flusser for example.

Also, the book favours in my opinion American classic style rather than presenting British, Italian etc notions. Still a good read and a nice format for reading on the go. Feb 05, Paul rated it it was amazing. Exquisitely written, entertaining, and illuminating little book. There is no magic bullet to dressing well, but with the tools provided here a man may confidently dress in a manner to do himself much honor.

The Suit: A Machiavellian Approach to Men’s Style

An excellent introduction to men’s suits, especially helpful if you have no idea at all. It’s both well written and filled with tips that can help any man find the right suit. Some of my favorite tips include paraphrasing “your first suit should be gray- not so dark a gray that you’re mistaken for a funeral director, but not so light that you couldn’t apply for a job as one. Jul 29, Jason Yang rated it it was ok. The Machiavellian writing style had made this a fun read at first, but after a few chapters of commitment, I found this work short on content.

Antongiavanni’s comments are more of the usual fanfare regarding male fashion. Ultimately, while this was a quick antongiavanno, I didn’t really feel like it was worth my time.
