DRESSING THE MAN FLUSSER PDF

Dressing the Man is the definitive guide to what men need to know in order to dress well and look stylish without becoming fashion victims. According to Flusser, dressing well is not all that difficult, the real challenge lies in being able to acquire the right personalized instruction. Dressing well pivots on two pillars -- proportion and color. Flusser believes that "Permanent Fashionability," both his promise and goal for the reader, starts by being accountable to a personal set of physical trademarks and not to any kind of random, seasonally served-up collection of fashion flashes.

While there are sites like Bespoke Unit that offer high levels of value, just about anyone who knows anything about clothes will agree that one man literally wrote the book on how men can remain permanently fashionable. That man is Alan Flusser. This is where I find the most value. Only in this way can we know the rules so well as to break them. The current menswear community owes a lot to Mr. GQ India recounts a fun story: When Flusser went to meet Douglas in his apartment, he was wearing suede shoes, a double-breasted suit, horizontal striped shirt, and pinned collar.

Flusser teaches us how to do just that. The focus on history is paramount throughout the book. Throughout the book, there are tons of pictures and illustrations. Not only are there plenty of visuals, but those visuals are used in a pedagogical way.

If you want to learn about how much shirt collar should be showing above your suit jacket collar. If you want to learn about the history of the brogue, go to the shoe chapter. If you want to learn about how to coordinate patterns, go to the chapter that talks about pattern coordination. Pros This is a one-stop shop of a book for tailored menswear. We cannot understate the value of this information.

Flusser unlocks mysteries of color coordination and pattern coordination, both of which are concepts that many men struggle with but have no one to turn to for help except us, of course… Again, there are visuals on nearly every page. This is obviously a huge help when talking about how clothes are supposed to look. Business casual gets its own chapter at the end. As this is a dress code that causes more confusion than it provides guidance, this is one of the most helpful chapters in the book.

The glossary at the end is extensive to say the least. Flusser suggests that smart dress shoes look best with tailored trousers. Cons The only con of the book is that it seems to view the interwar period as the only era of menswear worth replicating.

On the other hand, newer interpretations of fit and styling are not mentioned. Flusser really, really advocates for pleats, especially with braces. While we certainly see value in pleated trousers for certain body types, this is a bit dated. Favorite Parts A tie with a deep dimple below the knot, just as Flusser advises. You will learn everything from how to mate two patterns of the same design to mixing four different patterns all at once.

When discussing color contrast, actually being able to see how the garments around the face will affect the color of the eyes and skin undertones. Flusser is a giant of the menswear industry. As a tailor and sartorial historian, his advice is perfectly timeless. Leave A Comment.

Dressing the Man

Hence why, when I awoke the other morning in a cold sweat, suddenly acutely aware that I knew nothing about fashion, I promptly leapt upon the Amazon machine and clicked the button for this book, listed as one of the most popular titles available on the topic. It arrived and, besides the monumentally daunting size of the damn thing, the most striking element that came with it was the knowledge that smart male attire has changed very little over the years.
