I use this book as a reference manual on how clothes should fit. Need to buy a new tuxedo? Turn to the formal wear section and read up! It also gives you a few basic ideas on how to wear things. For instance, how to match a shirt and tie with jeans and a blazer. It won't tell you exactly how to wear things but just offer you guidelines with some great pictures.
For the $20 this book costs you get a free 1 year subscription to Details Magazine ($10 value) along w/ a ton of up to date information (Published October of 2007) so it's definitely worth it.
Chapters are broken down by article of clothing, from shirts, pants, jeans and polos to coats, gloves, hats and leather, everything is covered. And it is all explained in a very direct, excuse me ladies, but man's kind of way, like reading a car manual - almost. It is as good a read all the way through as it is a quick reference guide. In fact, it's as a reference guide that this book really shines. When dressing for any occasion, a quick flip through the book can help you choose the appropriate attire for any event, while feeling both confident in your look and comfortable in your attire.
All in all, men and the women who shop for men's clothing should check this out - especially if you want to start filling your closet with a wardrobe that is ready for anything. Great job, Details.
EDIT: Just went back through parts of the book again, and forgot to mention one key item. There are several points in the book where they suggest a new way/item to try, with 3 different levels of "difficulty", for example, wearing a sport coat with a tie, then a sport coat with jeans, etc. Something I hadn't seen mentioned before, even in their mag, and it's a great idea.
Now, on to the actual content. If you don't understand that you shouldn't buy clothes that are too large or too small for you, that you shouldn't wear sandles anywhere but the beach, that you shouldn't wear torn jeans, that plaid pants are out, that you shouldn't wear a bunch of random patches on your coat, and that you shouldn't wear your pants off of your hips, then this book may be for you. Pick it up and learn how to look like a human being. However, if you want something that goes beyond basic descriptions of clothing (from the book: "cotton sweaters are often overlooked, but they are perfect for cool summer evenings") and want the level of knowledge detail that an actual men's clothing stylist has, then look elsewhere. It does have basic descriptions, with accompanying tiny images, of things like shirt collar type and pant cuff type and length. It also has some other information that I haven't covered here that some may find valuable. However, I found the book entirely too basic, sparse, and small. I'll be sending this back and picking up Gentleman: A Timeless Guide to Fashion, by Roetzel, as a hopeful improvement on this book.
