Dressing the Man You Love: A Woman's Guide to Purchasing, Coordinating, and Caring for His Classic Wardrobe
A well-organized, non-intimidating resource, “Dressing the Man You Love: A Woman's Guide to Purchasing, Coordinating, and Caring for His Classic Wardrobe,” pushes aside the curtain marked “for men only” to explore the world of men's time-honored fashion.With sections on how to assess a man's clothing needs, the best suit cut for various body types, the right colors for different complexions, surviving the men's department experience, the important elements of a quality garment, how to work with salespeople and tailors, as well as simple rules for successfully mixing and matching apparel, this book is an invaluable tool for any woman looking to improve the appearance of any important man in her life.Also included are “secrets of success” shared by other women with similar challenges, as well as the author's extensive suggestions for preserving his newly acquired assets, including tips for laundering, mending, polishing, and storage.With over 150 illustrations, an easy system for helping him maintain his look even when she can't be there, as well as an extensive glossary and index, this book provides a one-stop guide that is both accessible and fun to read.
