  1. Cyril (verified owner)

    A brilliant book and is highly recommended. Very matter-of-factly, informative, with a lot of very interesting historical and linguistic references. A few repetitions and typos but it is only natural for 765 page book. A true encyclopedia!

  2. M. T., Chicago, Ill. USA (verified owner)

    Enjoying The Encyclopedia and am impressed that you give history, etymologies, even ways of caring for the body. Thanks again.

    Hello there! I’ve read and learned a lot regarding men’s fashion from your site. They’re really helpful. Encyclopedia is interesting and I downloaded that. Can say it’s good for business reference and i would love to share this with everyone who are interested in fashion.

  4. J. S., Paris, France

    I have many fashion books, many of them with hundreds of interesting pages about women’s and men’s fashion, but the way you explain things is so customer oriented and also very efficient. Thank you very much. — J. S., Paris, France

    I got the encyclopedia this morning thanks! I’ve been having a wonderful time reading through it and it’s worth every penny. I just finished the section about kilts. It reminded me of a passage from Douglas Sutherland’s The English Gentleman, Book Club Associates, London, 1981, p. 69: “One Scottish gentleman, on being asked by a coy lady, ‘Do tell me, is there anything worn under your kilt?’ replied stiffly, ‘Madam, to the best of my knowledge everything under my kilt is in perfect working order.’” Thanks again for the wonderful book!”

    I would really like to thank you for all the knowledge your encyclopedia and the forum has given me about men’s clothes, and I consider the $28.99 I spent on your Encyclopedia, one of the best purchases I have made.

    I believe that the information allows me to confidently make suggestions to customers about what looks nice, or what is made well, etc.   Maybe I’ll mail you a check for a percentage of my commission!!

    I received The Encyclopedia of Men’s Clothes this afternoon, Andy, and it’s terrifically useful!

    I particularly like your logical, straightforward approach to each section. I mean to say, it really makes sense to explain why something matters, then how to care for it once you’ve chosen to incorporate the thing into your life, and then to include a history of the item, which focuses the reader’s attention on its intrinsic value to a gentleman’s kit.

    Your book is more useful than Esquire’s Encyclopedia of 20th-Century Men’s Fashions, because the latter serves as a chronicle not a guide. The Encyclopedia of Men’s Clothes provides a road map for fellows who wish to understand the choices they make, and who wish to make choices they understand. I am simply delighted with your book!”

    Love the website and the Enclopedia. Well written and edited, nicely designed (both). Thanks.

    I have gotten so much out of the Ask Andy Forum that I felt an obligation to buy the Encyclopedia.  I figured even if I got nothing out of it, it only cost 28 bucks.  Well, I received the Encyclopedia , and I’ve been going through it.  What a wealth of information.  I’m sure that even the cognoscenti on the Forum would learn something from this encyclopedia. I doubt that there is anybody around who couldn’t benefit from it.

    I’ll be the first to admit that there is a lot I don’t know about clothing, but now all I have to do now is open the encyclopedia PDF and I can learn about clothing construction, what colors coordinate well, how to care for the clothes I’m spending all this money on, and even history lessons on how things got their names.  I love history so I get a kick out of finding out the origins of clothing.

    Anyway, I bought this out of guilt and I ended up getting quite a deal.  It is $28 well spent.

    I ordered your book a month ago, and I’m getting so much out of it I’d like to order two more books for my sons!   

  11. DF, Men’s store owner, FL

    Thanks for the superb encyclopedia. 

  12. S.W., VA

    I found your web site by doing a Google search for “pin collars.” The first result was a link to the forum, and I became positively hooked on it—I’ve spent far too much time reading posts in the past three days. When I branched out to the rest of the site, I discovered the wealth of information you’ve provided, and thought the Encyclopedia was a must-have. Thank you again for the wonderful Encyclopedia, and the terrific website.–

    Thank you for my copy of The Encyclopedia of Men’s Clothes. I first heard of your website through my older brother. As time went by I found myself focusing less on my hobby of gaming and more on my new found interest in style. I knew I had taken a turn when instead of asking for a game I asked for a watch! After my 17 birthday I decided I wanted your book. Since then I’ve had nothing but enjoyment out of this great investment. I keep being amazed at the difference this book and site has, can, and will make. I will definitely recommend this book as a must for any persons library.

    Thank you again!

    I have thoroughly enjoyed the Encyclopedia.  What a great service for those of us who do not know anyone who “knows” men’s fashion. 

  15. CR, CA

    I downloaded the Encyclopedia.  It’s excellent!!!  Very informative!!!  A must for any profession that requires business attire.  I have already recommended it to several others.
