It is possible to argue about taste, but not about true style. Gentleman is the tried-and-tested guide on matters of style and quality. From choosing a good tailor to proper shoe care, this book is an indispensible companion for indisputable good taste.

After studying design and working as a text-writer and conceptionist with advertising agencies in Frankfurt and Hamburg, Bernhard Roetzel dedicated himself to the world of menswear, becoming one of the authoritative experts in this field. In addition to his activity as an author and editor, he also holds lectures and seminars on menswear and style.Review:
Now available in a newly updated edition, GENTLEMAN: A TIMELESS GUIDE TO FASHION, is like having the best features from the pages of ESQUIRE, GQ and the like all collected into one hefty, Handsome Volume.
I've never heard of "male fashion expert" Bernhard Roetzel, but then again, I'm someone whose shaving cream comes out of an aerosol can, which, as it turns out, is servicable while on the go, but not necessarily the daily ideal. Ah, well. He obviously knows his stuff, and that stuff comprises a little more than 350 thick, full-color, crisply designed pages.
Part tutorial, part celebratory, GENTLEMAN covers all men's fashion issues, literally from head to toe. From styles of underwear and the joy of custom-made suits to stuff I don't even think about much less own like umbrellaas and handkerchiefs, the book schools you on all you need to know about becoming a sharp-dressed man.
Oh, one sticking point: You'll obviously need a healthy salary or well-stocked trust fund to pull this stuff off. That's not me, but a man can dream, can't he? That may be why I'm more attued to the brief essays that wax nostalgic over getting a good haircut at the old-school barbershop or the usefulness of a pocketknife.
One can't take all of Roetzel's words as gossip not when the virtues of cigarettes are extolled but all that's missing from this book are sample cologne strips. --Rod Lott Blog:Bookgasm.com
