As I wrote in a blog post a few years ago, Mr. Boyer is one of the very few writers on fashion and menswear who provide true depth of field to a subject that often registers mostly at the retina level with other writers and journalists.
Put simply, this is the best introduction and guide to masculine style currently on the market. It is the prose expression of the sartorial elegance described in the book itself, revealing an adroit knowledge of literature, sociology, history and a subtle tincture of personal experience.
What I enjoyed most is that Boyer combines the practical, informed and unexpected with a sense of ease. Much as true style deserves a moment of considered appreciation, this is a book worthy of an appreciative read. Highly recommended!
