The Staples is the reference book to get you to know most of the essentials of a man’s wardrobe. Why?
In one side you have the condensed information of what you need to know about the item in question and in the other you can see a professional picture of how it affects the look. That way, you can get a mental image and learn the impact and overall look you’re working into with that piece of clothing or accessory.
The key takeaways give you concise information about what to avoid and how to play it safe, and combined with the picture you get the necessary info about picking a piece of cloth you’ll feel comfortable and good-looking in it.
I’ve read and purchased other books but they’re mostly aimed at older gentlemen, but Tanner’ Staples works for guys in any age, even if you don’t need a suit for work or don’t like it for some reason (who doesn’t???). You can choose a nice pair of chukkas, a jeans/chinos and a v-neck sweater/shirt and blazer and you’ll know you are dressed like a man, not a clown.
The ebook itself it’s very clean presented with no unnecessary clutter. It’s great to have in your iPad when you are looking for inspiration in front of your wardrobe.
Overall, It’s a very good purchase with great potential to shape your fashion life around.
