A IS FOR AMIES: Sartorial witticisms from the late British couturier Sir Hardy Amies will be published as part of a new men’s style guide, “ABC of Men’s Fashion” (V&A Publishing) that will hit U.K. book stores in August. The cloth-bound tome will guide men through the minefield of male apparel, with topics ranging from boxer shorts to skiwear. Choice Amies quotes include: “A man should look as if he has bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care, and then forgotten all about them.” He also comments on boxer shorts: “I cannot help feeling that they will discover one day that they interfere with the line of the trouser.” And as for trouser cuffs, “You can’t have any.” The book costs 9.99 pounds, or $16 at current exchange, and will also be sold through the V&A’s Web site, vandashop.com.
