Welcome to the world of beautiful things

Alexander Marguier reveals to you why you should indulge yourself with a tailor-made suit, where to order it, and where to find the addresses of the best Japanese koi-breeders for your garden pond. If you are looking for the most exclusive men’s underwear (by "Zimmerli" of course) or the finest gloves (by the French manufacturer "Lavabre Cadet"), or for caviar, lobster or vodka, wristwatches, speech writers or a hat: Alexander Maguire’s Encyclopaedia of Luxury tells you what is really luxurious.

With knowledge, a good sense of humour and an immaculate sense of style, he caters for a sophisticated lifestyle and for a liberated consumer with exquisite tastes.

His playful guide through the world of goods is still characterised by his respect for a good piece of craftsmanship, be it jeans, chocolate or a yacht. Alexander Marguier’s witty features separate the wheat from the chaff and offer the ultimate ranking of luxury-goods.

Alexander Marguier is an authority on questions of taste and cultivation of style.

Ultimate guide to luxury goods with helpful advice and addresses.
