'Do not wear the same trousers two consecutive days. If you have a good stock, keep a roster, and let the first for duty take its turn. By this means they will always look fresh, and not hackneyed.' First published in 1876, The Gentleman's Art of Dressing with Economy is an indispensable guide to how to look good on a budget. Dressing as a gentleman, we learn, requires far more than throwing money at the latest fashions; a more prudent and knowledgeable approach is necessary. Written by the enigmatic 'A Lounger at the Clubs', the book takes the modern-day reader back to a time of fashionable London West End clubs in Piccadilly and Pall Mall where appearance was everything. From this we learn the essential characteristics of true gentlemanly dress and then, through a consideration of each article of clothing, how this look can be successfully achieved on a less generous budget. The combination of dry Victorian wit and genuinely sound advice makes this book the ideal gift for the modern-day man who is seeking to smarten his appearance whilst also tightening his financial belt.
