Description de l'ouvrage

9 octobre 1996
Alan Flusser, one of America's foremost menswear designers, knows fine clothes and where to buy them. He shares all this in his insightful and elegantly written treatise for the man interested in savvy attire. Tuck this volume into a corner of your suitcase and you'll be armed with a connoisseur's knowledge of the dos and don'ts of buying and wearing quality clothes and how much they should cost, from dinnerwear to casual sportswear. Open Style and the Man and learn about:
  • what to wear when you shop and why
  • the difference between a $395 and a $1,000 suit (and how to make sure you're getting your money's worth)
  • what two words to look for on a costly dress shirt's label
  • why the folds in a cummerbund should always be worn facing upward
  • how to recognize sports clothes capable of providing stylish longevity

Turn to the author's 200 favorite men's stores spanning seventeen cities in eight countries' both celebrated designer flagships and tiny shops known only to a privileged few and discover:

  • the little-known New York store that sells shoes that offer instant "cachet"
  • where the fashion set goes for the best T-shirt

In Style and the Man, Alan Flusser has created the perfect traveling companion for those men wishing to expand their sartorial knowledge as well as their wardrobe.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An ageing shopping guide for dandies 10 octobre 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
If you're seeking information on how to tell fine menswear from bad, skip this book and go directly to Flusser's new one.
If you're a would-be dandy looking for information on where to buy men's furnishings around the world, buy the book (with a minor caution). Many of the stores in the U.S. have relocated and some have closed.
On the other hand, I've used it to find choices in London and Paris that I would never have known about otherwise. And once you've made the initial investment in the measurements, you can patronize many of these establishments by telephone.
A number of earlier reviews criticise Flusser for focusing on the finest quality and most expensive clothing in the world. It is, and he does. But for people who do or want to play that game, it's still the best source of information.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Dated yet still relevant 3 janvier 2005
Par Christopher Foley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
As noted by many reviewers, the clothing fact information is first rate.

The second part of the book on shopping and retail establishments is so out of date in 2005 that I really question whether a purchase is worthwhile if retailer information is primary purpose of proposed purchase. A good 60% of the information on establishments in the US and London is totally outdated or the stores have gone out of business.

Try the library or borrowing from a friend to see if any of the desired information is still relevant before purchasing. This book needs a serious update.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 This book is over-rated and misleading 3 octobre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Somehow Flusser has managed to win acclaim for a book that is one-half tourist guide for only the rich and famous (where to buy fine clothes in Milan, etc, which is useless to most of us)and one-half a pompous, overly opinionated instruction-manual on tailored clothing. The instruction in this part is useful, but it's not worth the price of the book. Take away the travel guide and then clip away Flusser's dreadfully affected, ornate writing manner, and the total amount of instruction here on men's clothing boils down to about 50 pages. As for those 50 pages: they are good for providing basic information about tailored clothing, but they are nearly ruined by overly rigid sartorial rules. Flusser, who seems to have an unwarrantedly high opinon of himself, judging from his pronoucements, does not tell the reader that many of his judgments are not shared by everyone. This is a crime against the reader who buys Flusser's book as an objective guide to men's clothing and doesn't realize it's one very opinionated man's view. And some of these views are questionable to say the least. This book should be read with caution, and in conjunction with other, less opinionated books for those who are interested in men's tailored clothing. Also, a lot of this book is historical, and Flusser has no list of reference books in the back to tell the reader where he gets his info. from.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Source of Valuable Men's Clothing Information 22 août 2001
Par "empire-builder" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
As other reviewers have noted, this book is really two books. One is a guide to the style of fine men's clothes, the other tells where to buy them. Most people will probably find the style information in the beginning the most useful part.
One reviewer thought that the author left out certain points of view on style issues. It is true, for example, that the author recommends only the four-in-hand tie knot, and not the questionable half-Windsor. I think that he makes a good case for the four-in-hand being better looking, anyway. You certainly won't go wrong following the author's conservative clothing advice.
There is good information on wearing difficult clothes properly, such as the bow tie, handkerchief, etc. The book also describes how to buy clothes and judge their quality.
I think that the style information could be expanded and spun-off into its own book. The shopping information could stand on its own as a travel guide quite well. I would reccommend this book, however. It seems to be the best of its kind.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A guide for all of us... 1 février 2000
Par dcreader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
While it's true that Flusser's book contains a guide to some of the most expensive menswear in the world, it's silly to downgrade the book for that reason. By telling you about suit construction, Flusser makes it possible to buy good cloths inexpensively by showing you what to look for. Admittedly the second part of this book is a guide to "the best" available, but it's still interesting to read and instructional even if I'll never buy a suit in Milan (and I won't).
