My first book, Le Snob: Tailoring, is released this week on Amazon. The German version, released last month, has already sold out from UK stockists.

Despite the name, it is a guide to tailoring that would suit even the most naive beginner. It covers everything from buying a suit off the peg that fits you, to summer cloth options for bespoke.

I’m pleased with how it has turned out – the hard cover in particular and Moleskin-like elasticated band are smart. The only thing I might change is the watercolour illustrations, which although highly decorative are not always the best medium to illustrate the nuances of tailoring.

It seems odd that this is just out, given that it was begun two years ago, but then the next book is on course for Spring 2012 (luxury factories around the world) and we’re in discussions for number three.

I hope you like it.

Is it possible to buy it as an ebook for Ipad?

While I bought to the minute it released here in Germany, I do agree it is more for beginners. However, it’s great to just read up on something specific now and then.

Why don’t you allow preview of your book on Amazon. Books with preview sell better.

Simon– “…released this week..”? As of 4, Aug. 2011, Amazon has no available copies. “Out of print– Limited availability.”

You publisher needs to crank up the presses.
Thanks!

Ok, so the this lighter color for the cover is the UK version. As for the German version it has more of a deeper blue correct. Almost bought German..

I see two books in Amazon with similar title and cover, one is ‘Le Snob Guide to Tailoring’ published in Aug 2011 and the other is ‘Le Snob – Tailoring’ published in April 2011, which one is it? or are they different all together?

I tried to order this book on amazon.com and amazon.co.uk. It is not available. Can you help me?

Someone who’s gotten the book give this man some Amazon reviews!

Will there ever be a U.S. version? Where’s the love for your American readers?
