4.0 von 5 Sternen Molloy Hits the Mark, But An Update Is Needed
After reading Dress for Success numerous times, I feel it is of great help in informing men on such topics as how a shirt should fit, how to tie a tie, how to get a suit fitted, etc. However, in the last ten-plus years corporate dress has changed more than in any previous period. The reader today has to keep in mind that the book was written in 1988 and as such...

This book is one of only a few that talks about dressing for success based on years of dedicated research. Did you know that wearing a black raincoat pegs you as low class in the eyes of others?

Rezension bezieht sich auf: John T. Molloy's New Dress for Success (Taschenbuch)
After reading Dress for Success numerous times, I feel it is of great help in informing men on such topics as how a shirt should fit, how to tie a tie, how to get a suit fitted, etc. However, in the last ten-plus years corporate dress has changed more than in any previous period. The reader today has to keep in mind that the book was written in 1988 and as such should be considered in the proper context. Subsequently, it does not take into consideration the proliferation of casual attire in the business environment, and it predominantly considers how to dress like an executive, which may not be possible for an entry to middle level manager on a limited budget, even if clothing is bought on sale. The notion of borrowing to build a wardrobe also seems outdated. Today, society has become considerably more conscious of value and is less likely to drop large amounts on wardrobe. It is often hard to visualize what is meant by soft blue, light blue, midrange blue, dark blue, navy blue, etc. Some closeups of fabric swatches would help. As a college student, it would help if a whole chapter were devoted to college interviewing rather than a few pages.
All in all, the book is a great asset for any man, but an updated version would be of great benefit.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: John T. Molloy's New Dress for Success (Taschenbuch)
This book is one of only a few that talks about dressing for success based on years of dedicated research. Did you know that wearing a black raincoat pegs you as low class in the eyes of others? Neither did I until I read this book. What it will tell you is what suits, ties, etc. are associated with people in positions of power so that you may better dress the part. What it won't offer you is practical advice on how to select a good suit and the essential accessories. Above all, however, it is difficult to read this book without feeling that although it was published in 1995, it hasn't been seriously updated since 1988. $14 for a nice silk tie? Paisley still an acceptable option for the boardroom? Give me a break. All and all, a great place to start, but not the comprehensive modern reference for men's dress that it could be

Rezension bezieht sich auf: John T. Molloy's New Dress for Success (Taschenbuch)
I forgot to check the copyright date when I purchased this book and was disappointed when I found out that I purchased a 1988 book. This book was written when Reagan was President. I continually had to take Mr. Malloy's advice and project how his advice would apply today. I should not have to do this for a book titled the New Dress for Success. On the other hand, the underlying principles this book presents -- your dress matters -- dress to suit the situation -- do your research -- still apply. Consequently, this book still provides useful information for someone who needs advice on business dress. On the other hand, the color photos are very poor. This is a shame because much of the information presented requires photos of what does not work and what does work.

3.0 von 5 Sternen These people were already successful, 21. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: John T. Molloy's New Dress for Success (Taschenbuch)
I am a registered nurse and I read this book with anticipation of finding some useful information for middle management wear. As Mr. Molloy addressed only physicians, attorneys, reporters and upper executive positions it was of little benefit for me. The problem with any middle management nurse trying to use this information is the fact they would not only be wearing clothes to impress their employers but they would have to wear these same clothes as they walk the nursing units. I would have appreciated some guidance from Mr. Molloy for the nurse in middle management who want to look good for her meeting with upper management but must be able to walk into a patients room and perform some aspects of patient care.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Dated but still useful, 22. September 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: John T. Molloy's New Dress for Success (Taschenbuch)
Dress for Success is dated now by almost ten years, and it would be worthwhile for a newer edition to see how the late 90's business world views clothing. Molloy obviously writes for the affluent market and much of his advice is aimed at those who can afford the services of a custom tailor or the more expensive off-the-rack suits rather than those who can afford to buy at J. C. Penny. While his price information is out of date, he still gives useful advice on the selection of color and material based on body size and shape, as well as the fitting of a suit (a proper fit will make a cheaper suit look better than an expensive one poorly fitted) that I have not found elsewhere, and his advice on accessories is not bad

Rezension bezieht sich auf: John T. Molloy's New Dress for Success (Taschenbuch)
I purchased the 1975 edition of this book in 1982. I have referred to it religiously for the past 16 years for guidance on acceptable colors, materials and patterns as well as proper fit and acceptable accessories. It has served me well. I recently picked it up and realized that my copy was almost 23 years old! I'm sure some changes have occurred in conservative men's fashions ( prevalence of silk summer jackets which Mr. Molloy says is unacceptable ). I was hoping to find a very recent edition of this book, but realize the last update was 1988. Seems like a waste of money to buy this edition. I will wait.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Guide, 28. Juni 1999

Rezension bezieht sich auf: John T. Molloy's New Dress for Success (Taschenbuch)
This is one of the most valuable and useful books I've ever read. Until I read this book I had no idea how to dress appropriately for business situations. Now I can dress right for any situation (if I want to) and don't have to spend lots of money buying the latest fashion. It's not a matter of trying to impress other people, but knowing what's appropriate to wear in various situations, and taking control of how others will perceive you. I agree it would be very helpful to have an updated version (by the same author only). However, that does not diminish the value of this book

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very helpful insights into clothing and dressing, 22. November 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: John T. Molloy's New Dress for Success (Taschenbuch)
Before the time I had read the book I already made up my mind about the impressions I create - at least a little bit. Now after the reading I take a far more serious and closer approach at all the related topics! Especially helpful is the statistical work the author has done over the years. And now I take very curious position when I rate other people's appearance. And to my astonishment: I think that most men I meet don't make up their mind on what they wear. And the ones I talk to about this topic don't (or don't want to) realize the implications of their dresses.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Work, 3. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: John T. Molloy's New Dress for Success (Taschenbuch)
This rate is based on the past edition and I have searched for an updated version. It is a book any serious minded business oriented person would read. It gave me my first tips in dressing in the corporate world.
It was also very useful in the area of how to sit in the office and arrange your office.
It gives tips and advice that make you noticable anywhere in a corporate gathering and boost your confidence.
I can only imagine what the new edition contains. I can't wait to see the new edition.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This Book Lives To Its Name (Dress for Success)., 24. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: John T. Molloy's New Dress for Success (Taschenbuch)
Back in 1987 when I was an insurance agent then, I obtained a copy of this book. It helps me to be a #1 outstanding salesman and a smart dresser. It helps me to sell my products, myself and my company. I was promoted to a managerial position in 1988, and was also rated agent of the year. But later a personal friend of mind borrowed this valuable book from me and since then had failed to return it. INDEED, IF ONE WANTS TO BE SUCCESSFUL, HE NEEDS TO READ THIS BOOK. Thanks to its writer.
