As a true measure of this lovely book is if you apply it to improve your sartorial style. The following are a few brief refinements that I've applied: Purchased 2 linen sportcoats, the book gave me more confidence in linen as an appropriate, and elegant sportcoat material for summer and made me less fond of silk. Looking for some better cufflinks in silver, something more sublime. Suspenders...have caught my interest. In fact, I took notice of a gentleman in Chicago yesterday and he looked quite well put together. I've already been toning down my ties to navy's burgundy's and elegant stripes. So what have you applied from/after reading, "The Suit"
