    The Definitive guide to Parisian men's clothing and style. It is well presented and really is a must for those with even a passing interest in men's clothing.

    This book is alright. I've bought a few different ones for my already stylish husband who enjoys visuals to pique his ongoing fashion interest. If you are buying a book about dressing like a Dandy for the first time this would be one of the books but not the 1st book I'd recommend. I believe there is even a book called Dandy. This one is big & heavy enough to make a coffee table book & would make a good gift.
