9781438286136: The Stupid Things Men Do About Their Clothing

Dr. Ivan Chen has sold men's clothing for more than a decade. He has spoken with tens of thousands of customers and has been amazed by the many foolish things men do about their clothing. *Many men buy fancy dress pants and have the pants cuffed at a wrong width. *Many men wear oversize shirts and ask for fitted ones. *Many men wear their pants several inches below the waistline and ask for pairs of long pants. *The vast majority of men tie their ties using the four-in-hand, half Windsor, or Windsor. These three knots prevent the tie from arching out. *Most men wear their dress shirt sleeves the same length as their arms. Dr. Chen collects some of the most common mistakes and offers solutions. He has been able to understand and explain many phenomena in men's clothing better than any fashion expert. Dr. Chen often provides surprising, yet convincing explanations. Many of his answers are thought provoking and are contrary to common beliefs.
