Thank you. I was being a little facetious and used Manton's book since someone had mentioned it earlier in the thread. I was hoping it might push people into adding some more examples to the thread.

Manton's book is more advanced level reading. More for intellectual amusement than basic instruction.

What book?

While I of course am delighted to sell books, I do agree that Clothes and the Man is foundational for MC, and if one could have only one book on the topic, that should be it.

On that note: is it worth getting "Clothes and the Man" if one already owns "Dressing the Man"?

Of Flusser's books, I like Dressing the Man better because I'm simple-minded and enjoy the pictures.

Just ignore the crap about skin tone. His advice for Asians is idiotic.

A Machiavellian approach to dressing.

Is it a guide or satire?

Satire. Great read. I think you'd enjoy it. You have to be acquainted enough with the subject to get the humor. Beginners will be bewildered. Idiots will take it literally.

I think so. I think it is more straightforward and informative. While not as lavishly illustrated, it is overall a better book IMO.

Pretty pictures FTW.

OK, thanks.

MIke, we should do an abridged, fully illustrated version of your book. We can call it something like "The Prince Goes to Work!" and use WAYWRN photos as examples. I volunteer to be your editor.

if you abridge it, you will fuck up all the paragraph symetry, word patterns and numerology, which are the only ways to access the secret teaching!
