I spent a relaxing evening last night reading Tim’s new book A Guide To Quality Taste & Style. I found it nothing less than delightful and full of practical style advice including how to carry oneself well. Tim has a way of being amusing without ever really trying to be. There were some passages in the book which made me laugh out loud! A couple of examples:
From the chapter entitled Diagnosing The Common Closet:
“Perhaps you like to torture yourself by trying on some jeans from a few years ago to see if you can button them. Clothes do not exist to humiliate their owners. Please do not force garments into performing psychological tasks for which they were not designed.”
and from Let’s Go Shopping At Last!:
“Because technology does a fine job of protecting us from the more extreme vagaries of our environment, you might ask, why not wear voile on Thanksgiving? Well, because then life is one long stretch of endless voile-wearing and, really, who wants that?”
Now, if only I could figure out how to have him sign my book, sigh.
