The Finest Menswear in the World is a luxurious, hardback book covering some of the finest makers of menswear in the world, including tailoring at Cifonelli,the quality of a Bresciani sock, and hand-woven panama hats at Brent Black.

Read about the foundation story of Drake’s ties; the awe-inspiring archive of Loro Piana; and the things that make peccary leather so tricky.  

Sub-titled ‘The craftsmanship of luxury’, it is intended to explain and illustrate the craft that goes into these pinnacles of product. And perhaps highlight those so-called luxury brands who do nothing of the sort.

You can read more about the book here.

To reiterate, in order to buy a personalised copy of the book please email simon@simoncrompton.co.uk. Thank you
