Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Men's clothes today are confusing--they reflect the multi-task world we all live in, where work is a constant presence and fun is serious business. The old uniforms are gone, with casual work environments, new cultural standards, and increasing global influences, new styles are evolving. In this changing time, Chic Simple Men's Wardrobe makes the myriad options easy, accessible, and inexpensive. The book is divided into four sections of a guy's life: WORK LIFE takes you through everything you need to compete sartorially whether you work at home or in an office, EVERYDAY LIFE reflects today's more casual society and the new dress codes for weekends and after work, OUTDOOR LIFE is a gear guide to both the classics and the tech-advanced sport clothes for golf, tennis, skiing, fishing, hunting, or the gym, and evening wear, whether for a casual dinner date or opening night, is covered in NIGHT LIFE. In addition, you'll learn to:

--dress for an interview or a night on the town
--handle the new corporate casual look
--travel for a week with an overnight bag
--relax when the invite reads "black tie"
--choose the right cut for your body type
--dejunk your closet and recycle the classics you own
--create a low-maintenance lifetime wardrobe

First Aid, a section in the back, turns you into your own valet--stains, starch, ironing are demystified; how to pack and how to shop are deconstructed; and a glossary defines more than 200 terms from "gusset" to "placket."

Synopsis:

Chic Simple Men's Wardrobe covers every aspect of dressing for the life men live today. It is divided into four main sections. Worklife is a complete guide to looking good and feeling comfortable, even if today's office schedule includes (among other madnesses) a crisis meeting, a client presentation, and urgent rolled-up-sleeves paperwork. Plus the latest tips for dress-down Fridays. Everyday Life takes you home after work or out during the week. Outdoor Life helps you dress appropriately for golfing, fly-fishing, skiing and working out at the gym, and other weekend endeavors. And Nightlife offers ideas for clothes that can make you a "sharp-dressed man" ("Bond, James Bond") on a dinner date or an important occasion at home.

Throughout, pictures and text address the questions that men ask — about wearing color, choosing ties, finding the bulletproof classic in everything from motorcycle jacket and blazer to a martini glass. From emergency collar stays to dressing to meet your boss at her club, there has never been such a detailed, comprehensive, and savvy guide to a guy's world of clothes.
