Was a satisfaction can work with Douglas Hand creating the illustrations for the book "The Laws of Style: Sartorial Excellence for the professional gentleman" published in New York.
I was in charge of the design and development of more than 40 illustrations showing the different ways of dressing that men have depending on their work. What kind of silhouette, suits, colours fabrics, different combinations, type of cuffs, type of collars are some of the chapters you can read.
Some of these illustrations can be the perfect help and guidelines to have more knowledge about the menswear fashion.
A fantastic initiative of Douglas who with Nick Wooster´s prologue we created in 2017.

"To approach Douglas Hand is to behold style. Smart, handsome, and gracious, Douglas also has the additional advantage of knowing how to ‘put himself together’ for any occasion and conditions. In the endless speculation about who might be the first American to play James Bond onscreen, I submit Hand. Doug Hand."
Alec Baldwin, Actor
"When I envision how my clothes are going to look on a capable man, Douglas is that man."
Todd Snyder, Menswear Designer
"Douglas Hand is the dapper-est dude in my hood. The Laws of Style is fascinating, obsessive, and insanely useful."
