    I went to my local library and found a treasure of books, including The Official Preppy Handbook. If you have some free time go to your local library and look up men's clothing. A list of some titles I checked out: Birnbach, Lisa. The Official Preppy Handbook. Workman Publishing Company. New York, NY. 1980. Omelianuk, Scott. Esquire's Things a Man Should Know About Style. Riverhead Books. New York, NY. 1999. Thourlby, William. You Are What You Wear: The Key to Business Success. Sheed Andrews and McMeel. Kansas City, MO. 1978. Wagenvoord, James. Personal Style: The Man's Guide to Fashion, Fitness, Travel, and Entertaining. Holt, Rinhart and Winston. New York, NY. 1985. Wilson, William. Man at His Best: The Esquire Guide to Style. Esquire Press. 1985. I was unable to find any books by Alan Flusser.

    IMHO, you should chuck the rest of those books, with the exc. of the preppy handbook, go for flusser and boyer, the two best in their field. i would recommend looking at amazon.com to find the books/ descriptions, then order the books via the interlibrary loan, by finding them in Books in Print.

    also, add to the list the 'chic simple Mens Clothing' book. good resource, i think.
