Decent job on an obscure subject.

The first third or half of the book is a waste of time. But the rest makes it worth buying.Most books only give a passing explanation on casual friday. This one analyzes it to death. They give names for four different types of casual dress, and give guides and even wardrobe lists for each of those styles. It definitely helped me figure out what image I want to present.My criticism is that like many magazines, movie reviews, entertainment shows, etc, it hates to say "don't." There are too many "you could try this" or "some would prefer that" type answers, and it doesn't really tell about the gaffes people might commit. Also, more and colored photos would help, but most any book on the subject would likely have that same flaw.I don't believe there to be a better resource on business casual dress, and to the Van Heusen group's credit they don't plug their stores much at all (aside from a few Bass Weejun mentions). Buy it, tear out the first 3-4 chapters, and be happy.

a good solid book

This is a good book for people who want to dress better at casual work places or, in my case, men who are looking to improve their style. That's one of the problems: not a lot of good style books out there for men. This one does a pretty good job, showing illustrations to help you along and giving some key points.Definitely worth a look. Also, even better, check out Carole Jackson's COLOR FOR MEN. I wrote a review over there, too.

This book offers good points for men of all ages and size

I thought this was a good reference book. It offers good points on casual dressing for men of all sizes. I have two jobs, one as a male dancer and the other as a real estate agent. I must wear casual dress wear and sometimes I just don't match. This book provided me with information on how to wear anything from jeans and tennis to slacks and sports jackets.

Keeping it simple

I work for a company that allows me to dress "business casual" every day. I have to admit that I was not sure what that ment, before reading this book. I have to say that many things in the book are "no brainers" when you think about them. The book is good because it brings it all together. It is a good guide to help you avoid the mines in the mine field called "casual business"

opened my eyes to MANY new kinds of ways

A big question on the minds of many is, "How can I look my best without overdoing it?" This book provides many ideas where one can get started.Some people tend to equate the word "casual" with "Anything Goes." That's only one level of definition. As this book demonstrates, you have a big array of possibilities, from dressy casual to more relaxed, informal casual. Beyond the text description, pictures also show you what suggested combinations look like together. Other helpful pictures show you where one may go to either extreme, either too formal or too outgoing, unbeknowingly. Most importantly, I like how this book shows how you can appear tastefully without always having to wear a tie, esp. because a tie is a "no-no" in some places of work nowadays. The book also explains how society in general is becoming more casual and how that gets reflected in many things we engage with, such as our clothes.If any improvement could be made to this book, it would be that the photographs appear in color.
