IIRC from Dressing the Man he says often that rules are meant to be "bent," and that this often the way one arrives at true stylishness. Too much hedging in a book of guidelines would defeat the purpose.
The vintage pictures are wonderful, but the pictures in the "use of color" section are a little offputting. When he purports to show that certain colors enhance someone's appearance, shouldn't they do so on their own without tweaking in Photoshop? That the he "brightens the eyes" (or whatever) with a computer is far more damaging to his credibility.
Still, it is a great read.
