Dressing the Man is the definitive guide to what men need to know in orderto dress well and look stylish without becoming fashion victims. Alan Flusser’s name is synonymous with taste and style. With this book he combines his encyclopedic knowledge of men’s clothes with his signature wit and elegance to address the fundamental paradox of modern men’s fashion: why, after men today have spent more money on clothes than in any other period of history, are there fewer well-dressed men than at any time ever before?


Harris Tweed is a unique woolen textile that has been hand-woven by islanders off the west coast of Scotland for generations.

William “Braveheart” Wallace rode to battle in it. Queen Victoria decked Balmoral in it. Madonna donned it to strut on the stage. And Apollo 12 astronauts took a swatch of it to the moon.

GYPSY + JET SET = GYPSET Fusing the ease and the carefree lifestyle of a Gypsy with the sophistication of the jet set, author Julia Chaplin coined the term “Gypset” to refer to an international community of artists, designers, and bon vivants – the twenty-first century’s Bright Young Things Gypset Style explores their unconventional lives of wanderlust and the bohemian enclaves they inhabit, as well as their counterculture forebears, including the Victorian explorers, the Lost Generation, beatniks, and hippies.


Khakis are the singular disinterested element within apparel. All other clothing classifications have, despite assimilation, kept their original identities and struggled to assert themselves – especially those nasty cardigans. It’s a war out there in clothingland. Jeans-infinitely declined, defined, re-defined, and varied – are nonetheless always redolent of work and the worker. No pea coat, however chic, seems other than AWOL from the ship. Khakis have a definite place and history , but they also possess an unusual apparel transcendence, an ability to be without meaning . Khakis get along , Khakis are the pacifists in the war that exist within “wardrobe”.

Such strategies of visual deception have inspired human hunters since prehistoric times.
