I'm the new guy here, and was hoping that someone could suggest a book for me!

What I'm looking to learn is how to match clothing to body type, how to match a tie to the suit, etc. How to choose a suit, What the colors portray, i.e. I have one book that said dark gray shows authority?

Prefferably for men and women, but if I can only choose one, then - for men.

Thank you, gentlemen.

Why would you need a book when you have this forum? Just browse through the history. There's lots of good topics and humor.

I could never read a book on suiting that wasn't strictly technical. There's too many factors, and trying to shoehorn everything into a few rules -- or even suggestions -- is not much unlike wearing off-the-rack when bespoke is available.
