Following his studies in design, Bernhard Roetzel was first a copywritter and creative for advertising agencies in Frankfurt and Hamburg, as well as a script editor for a television company. He has been involved in the world of classic menswear for more than 15 years. He holds talks and seminars on questions of style.
To the aficionado, men's shoes are cult objects. No garment
available for men is similarly coveted, lovingly cared for, and
comparatively dearly bought by its devotees. But even committed
shoe fans often lack the broad knowledge. Consequently, a book
about shoes should not only deal with the aesthetic side but also
offer a wealth of information--on materials and styles, brands and
manufacturers, models and their makers. Bernhard Roetzel's A Guy's
Guide to Shoes conveys competence and knowledge, discusses trends
and history, and depicts fashion and style.
