    I just bought a book called "Color for Men" by Carole Jackson. Even though the book was originally published in the late 80's, the book stays relevant through it's information. The book centers on you determining your "season", which is based on your eye color, hair color and skin tone. Each season has colors which they look best in. On top of this, the author explains the difference between specific cuts of suit, which collars/ties/eyeglasses look best with which face, how to tie a bow tie etc. The only somewhat useless part of the book is the section that tries to box men into certain dress descriptions (Romantic, Serious, etc). It's a small complaint for the usefulness of the book, The book itself is a cheap buy off amazon.com, where I found a used copy for 4 dollars. I recommend it.

    Yeah you'd have to buy something entitled "Color of Men" online...I wouldn't want to walk up to the counter with that , and I'm comfortable in myself too.

    But I'll check it out. I have a book called "How to be a Gentleman" and it has a lot of the same thing in it as you described.

    This book was a new york times best seller back when it was released. I accidently found it through amazon; I bought it because the reviews were great.

    You're not buying for seasons. In the book, seasons are color schemes that work for certain skin and hair tones. I'll elaborate a bit more tomorrow, as it's bed time.

    So you change from a toe-headed blue eye white guy to a black guy as the seasons change?

    I'll post a quicky to give you all an idea.

    This one may sound funny without pictures, but the guy looks arab/italian.
