Description

With impeccable taste and unparalleled knowledge, connoisseur Simon Crompton introduces the ultimate examples of contemporary artisanal menswear, from the Panama hat to the Milanese buttonhole.

In profiles of fourteen distinguished companies that all design, make and sell their own products, he offers detailed insight into the way in which these luxury items are crafted, explaining how a handstitched seam, a perfectly cut sleeve or screen-printed silk set these makers apart.

Crompton’s expert guidance enables the discerning gentleman to dress himself head to toe in the finest menswear in the world.
