about this item

With impeccable taste and an unerring eye for quality, connoisseur Simon Crompton seeks out the world’s most beautifully crafted contemporary menswear, item by item, from the Panama hat to the Milanese buttonhole.In profiles of fourteen distinguished companies that design, make, and sell their own products, Crompton tells the story of how each luxury item is crafted, explaining the subtle but crucial difference a hand-stitched seam, perfectly cut sleeve, or screen-printed silk can make. Augmented by extensive, specially commissioned photographs, The Finest Menswear in the World delves into every element of the well-dressed man’s wardrobe, both business and casual, from shirts to shoes, suits to scarves, and bags to umbrellas.
