Gents get a style lesson with Le Snob’s Tailoring
He lives in London and owns far too many suits. Menswear journalist Simon Crompton is passionate about classic men’s elegance, so much so he has collaborated with the folk behind the Le Snob book series to create a rather dapper guide to tailoring. Skimming the top notes of sartorial style, Simon’s first book is an essential read for the modern gentleman.
The pocket-sized guide teaches gents to tell the difference between ready to wear, made to measure and bespoke, as well as explaining the seemingly foreign terminology of, and fast facts about, suit styles, choosing materials, the assembly process and adding finishing touches. Providing advice on how to select, wear and maintain fine garments, Simon arms you with all the knowledge required for your maiden trip to the tailor.
Dealing specifically with style (not fashion), Simon is the founder of Permanent Style – the most popular blog on men’s classic style in the UK – and writer for The Rake, GQ and Financial Times. He refuses to follow trends, earning his dandy brownie badges instead by channeling the epitome of timeless tailoring.
