: 6 Benchmark Tomes On Considered Style That Every Gent Should Have In His (Literary) Collection :
Collectively embodying what one could call a literary treasure trove of styling resources, each one of these insightful tomes offers a unique take on what socially (and culturally in some instances) constitutes as being the differing (yet widely accepted) forms of proper dress with that of foolproof advice and industry musings on all matters pertaining to style and permanent fashion mixed in.
Be that as it may, what you will unearth in each is a vast and broad spectrum of topics ranging from how-to's on the basic proponents of permanent style and the enduring merits of distinctive wardrobe continuity (ie. what are the truly unbreakable rules and what is proper decorum) through that of touching upon the mastering of the finer details and intricate nuances of dress codes, accessorizing, and the literal ABC’s of classic menswear.
Essentially, these style tomes can do a great many things for any keen and interested style-conscious gent, from strictly being pure entertainment to ably elevating his signature style to the next level while broadening his ever-expanding (i.e. never satisfied with the status quo) self-knowledge and sartorial aptitude — all of which is in due course of fashioning him into what constitutes as being a more sensibly considerate and characteristically worldly gentlemen of exemplary taste, style and substance.
You will likely emerge (from the pages of any of the following tomes that is) a beacon of irreproachable style, a considerably more well-rounded and better dressed gent, and as the go-to (tastefully discerning) eye in your social circle that all turn to in times of need when it comes to all matters pertaining to personal style; they will impart and fully equip you with the consummate evergreen knowledge, sage wisdom, and tangible styling savoir-faire to always being properly attired for any occasion, era, or eventuality without fault.
So, perhaps you require a guiding definitive (i.e. sage) voice or just a step-by-step instruction manual to sort out any questions or misgivings you may have?
Or perhaps it is because you desire a reassuring sartorial re-education on the fundamentals of timeless style or even that of an enlightening (and illuminating) journey through the various stages of menswear history?
Or, and maybe just maybe, you just fancy a touch of pure literary entertainment, something that is at once able to placate both your innate desire for lifelong learning and your insatiable pursuit of (style-related) knowledge?
Whatever it may be, and no matter what it is that ultimately drives any of these essential (finely illustrated and penned I must add) reads into your lap, you can rest assured in knowing that they will most definitely not be a let down in any which way or form.
And with that I do believe its high time we dove into the peerless six…
Or in other words, the books that not only champion what stands as a truly permanent form of dress and style that is both ageless and fashionably enduring but that will set you upon the proper path to becoming the most impeccably dressed and handsomely adorned gent you can be no matter what life (or fate) sees fit in throwing your way.
With that in mind, and by all accounts, one could say that all that truly remains may be a touch of personalized sartorial inspiration for when the occasion (and time) presents itself to settle down and peruse any one of the aforementioned fine literary companions.
And for just such an occasion I could not think of a more sartorially considered (and appropriately game) ensemble then the extravagantly well put-together look fashioned below.
Cheers and happy tidings gents!
