Many men are no longer indifferent to the way their jacket sits, and they are no longer content with choosing a suit off the rack.
You can now read up on what you need to bear in mind when choosing and buying a suit in the 144-page book “Obsessions: Tailoring”. From deciding whether you want one, two or three buttons or even a double-breasted suit to the choice of material, pattern and lapel, there are countless things to consider. Not to mention the choice of accessories. And suddenly it becomes clear: women aren’t the only ones who are spoilt for choice. Men don’t have it easy either.
The book presents itself as a guide to finding your own style but it also gives advice on the advantages and disadvantages of various kinds of jackets and trousers. A directory of the world’s most prestigious bespoke tailors, designers and prêt-à-porter tailors, from London’s renowned tailoring HQ, Savile Row, to the big labels like Tom Ford, Brioni and Kiton, as well as tips on how best to clean and store your suit: this descriptive and entertaining book by fashion journalist Simon Crompton tells you everything you could possibly need to know. From the brain behind the successful menswear blog Permanent Style.
