Om boka

As we look back upon past centuries, and can scarce repress our laughter at many of the absurd fancies in costumes our ancestors wore, our present beloved fashions equally in their turn may become subjects of wonder and mirth to our future descendants. Part fashionable guide, part defense of dandyism, this manual for menswear was originally published in 1830. It advises on the nuances of men's fashion, on how to perfect all elements of dress, from the elegant staple of cravatiana to the delightful whimsy of masquerade dress. Color, cut, and fabric choice are scrutinized, with accompanying advice given on the subjects of posture--one must not turn the toes in!--and the male grooming regime. A definitive guide to the rules of dress and decorum, this is a handbook that the fashionably-inclined gentleman simply cannot do without.
