As with our post last week, here are some extracts from the book to whet the appetite - this time from the 'casual' chapter. 

 

The scarf as handkerchief

Michael Drake

  • A mixture of blues, all just about different enough to provide variation in the upper half.
  • A scarf stuffed into the pocket can function almost as well as a pocket handkerchief in adding a touch of style – and it looks rather more casual.
  • Simple workwear jackets, like this in French blue, are often a good avenue to explore for sartorial men looking for casual alternatives. Green M-65 jackets are another example.

 

Wear tailored summer trousers

Adam Rogers

  • The contrast between tailored, well-fitted trousers and spilling-out linen shirt.
  • The very classic tortoiseshell-coloured glasses.
  • The summery colour combination of white and green (no colonial-feeling tan or cream linen in sight).

 

The blues

Michael Browne

  • A navy long-sleeved polo is used as an anchor for the bright-blue jacket.
  • Unusually for tailoring worn with a polo shirt, the jacket is quite structured, creating more contrast between formal and casual, and therefore a slightly more showy look.
  • The navy of the coat is sufficiently darker than the polo to act as a third shade of blue.

 

Jamie and I hope you enjoy the book!

Looks very interesting indeed. Would like to read it. It may be sacrilege to request but are there any plans for an electronic version of the book? I don’t even know if such a thing is possible but I would be interested (and my groaning coffee table would thank you).

Thomas L

Yes, fair point. Thank you. Fine looking book.

Neil

Hi Simon,
Look forward to picking up a copy – and congrats with the launch.

Out of interest, how many pages is the book?

AJ Burns

Cannot wait to get my hands on this book. I will pick one up at Christian Kimber’s wonderful shop in Melbourne. Any chance you signed the ones going there?

PS Great to see more Australian stuff featured on the site – the country’s menswear scene has changed dramatically since I moved here in 2008 (which P Johnson and Christian Kimber being to great examples).

Surely a dilapidated Sicilian palazzo would be a more suitable background for the second photograph? Despite the harmonious colours, that look doesn’t work in London or most other cities.

Simon,
Although I won’t be sporting the scarf as a handkerchief even with the heaviest of colds, I am interested in workwear jackets as illustrated.
Do you know London stockists with a good take on this ?
Regards,
David

Noted Gus, thank you for your incredibly valid opinion.

How can I get a copy this beautiful piece. As I am in India. Can I order online and is it available to be shipped to Mumbai, India. I would like to meet you someday as I consider you my Virtual Satorial Mentor. Good Luck Simon…

Bryan

Can this be purchased on Amazon?

Alfonso Gálvez

Unfortunately there’s no store available in Spain so I’ll order it online. Have you got any idea how long takes to get it?
Thanks and congrats for the launch.

Duy

Dear Simon,
Please let me know the exact address or the contact of Sprezzatura Eleganza Store in Bangkok. I’d love to have one copy but can’t find this store infomations on the internet.
Thanks a lot,
A big fan from Vietnam

from where i get this?

I found your blog whilst looking for authoritative information on English-made shoes and found it in abundance. I found your approach to matching garments, textures and colours fascinating and informative so I ordered The Style Guide. It arrived this morning and I’m really enjoying the themes laid out in print format – it’s so much more practical than clicking back and forth on a website. Many thanks for an excellent body of work.

FRED DERRING

I ENJOY SO MUCH YOUR STYLE AND THE WAY YOU CONVEY THE ATTITUDE OF DRESSING AND THE KNOWLEDGE THAT YOU IMPART IS SO HELPFUL TO MY BUSINESS I READ ALL AND LOVE — MANY THANKS

Mr. Hazy

I will hopefully get one online, because in my country there isn’t any store.

Cheers
