Glancing through the bookshelves of the bookstore that I visited in regular basis, seems like I am looking for something but nothing particular in mind, just when I was about to turn my head away to settle with an interior magazine, something like a shape quick flash sparks in my eyes, it’s not something literally shines but just a snapshot of a polished and stylish gent book cover, a view of his side in a Prince-of-Wales heathery grey suit with the burgundy window pane pattern, which accentuates his chocolate brown knit tie contrasting with the crispy white shirt, and then I take a closer look then started to realize, it’s a beautiful new book about stylish men’s guide - ‘From Tip to Toe’ by Robert Klanten & Sven Ehmann, a guide for essential men’s wardrobe.
With the urge of my curiosity, I pick up the book and start to look through page by page, the exclaim in silence within me said how smart this book is when it comes to creating your own closet from a broad range of suggestions, from formal business wear to weekend casuals, it’s a guide for those who strives to look impeccably stylish within one book thanks to the discreet selections of iconic mens’ clothiers around the world.
