9780789303882: The Boutonniere: Style in One's Lapel

For men whose sense of style transcends cigars and single-malts, the boutonniere represents the new epitome of luxurious masculinity. Worn by today's impeccably dressed man, the boutonniere makes a confident statement of elegance and personal flair.

This beautifully illustrated volume shows how to incorporate this ultimate style accent to the modern man's wardrobe, whether for day or night, casual or formal occasion. Specially commissioned full-color photography demonstrates the matching of colors, fabrics, and styles with a wide range of floral possibilities, from a single daisy or carnation to the orchid or lily of the valley. In addition, the book presents a fascinating history of the boutonniere and the men who have worn them, from such royals as the Duke of Windsor and Prince Charles, to Hollywood icons like Cary Grant, Fred Astaire, and Sean Connery.

From sprucing up an everyday suit to sporting the perfect boutonniere on your wedding day, this book offers the definitive word on this symbol of masculine elegance.

The book is brief, but this is such a specialized topic that it is abundant enough.The book starts with a historic narration of flowers in men's clothing, moves on, to more recent well-dressed men that wear them, and then to examples of elegant more modern combinations that include the use of boutonnieres.This is not a "picture book" only, it includes essays on the topics that are well written and inspire the reader to become an impeccable dresser, and this is what Brioni is all about.
