The Fundamentals of Style: An illustrated guide to dressing well (Style for Men)

The #1 best-selling men’s style book on Amazon!

Most men don’t dress well.

Fashion and style are no longer subjects that are passed down from father to son, and any man who suddenly decides that he wants to look better is often intimidated and overwhelmed. Most men’s fashion books are overly-preachy and judgemental; they try to dress men in a very conservative style that may not actually match their personality or tastes.

“Style for Men: A simple guide to dressing well” is designed for men who want to understand the fundamental rules of men’s style; how to tell if clothing fits, how to discern between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ garments and how to create a style that matches your personality, your job and your lifestyle.

It’s easy-to-follow format features simple and clear illustrations, specifically designed for the Kindle. It even details the best way for men to shop for clothes effectively – from choosing the right stores to selecting garments and dealing with sales assistants.

It is good book for people who are looking for basic understanding of terminologies used in the fashion apparel industry.

This goes into the very, very crude basics of dressing to look good. While I think much of the information presented here is decent, there is really a lack of enough pictures to illustrate what the author is talking about. There’s a huge difference between talking about what looks good vs bad, and then showing what looks good vs bad. I guess this book would help guys who wear football jerseys everywhere look a bit more professional, but the level of help is pretty bare bones here.

My main recommendation: Spend the money and get the Details Magazine Style book, it has TONS of color pictures on every page, sample outfits, etc.

This is a great reference for someone looking to improve the way they look. I found it very easy to read and approachable. The author avoids the generic “Wear this and you will look cool” approach that seems to characterize most books/forums in this genre and instead gives easy to understand and practical advice on how to create a more personal style that is more in tune with the kind of image you want to project to the people you meet.

I think the advice given in this book is useful for everybody, from men who want to undertake a stylistic overhaul, to men who could simply use some pointers to think about when they are trying to find clothes that make them look good.

Like the title says: Highly recommended.
