Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
This striking menswear tome will come to define today's essence of style
The book begins with “Dressing Your Body Type,” because when you know what fits your unique body, the better you can pull off any look. In section one, “Clothing,” Schuman delves into wardrobe basics with “Elements”–an illustrated glossary of everything from jackets and pants, and collars and cuffs, to outerwear and underwear.
Also sprinkled throughout are “Style Strategies” explaining how stylish gentlemen do what they do so well, and the “Focus” section is filled with tips on to how to talk to a tailor, view the runway, and discover inspiration from friends and colleagues. The second part of the book tackles everything you need to know about accessories–whether to go socks or no socks, and how to tie a tie, choose the right glasses or sunglasses, and find the right shoe.
Part three, “Maintenance & Sustainability,” is filled with illustrated step-by-step instructions on how to care for, mend, fold, store, and pack your clothes and footwear. Schuman even shares pointers on the how and why to invest in key pieces of your wardrobe, shop online or in person, or buy vintage or new.
