Gentleman. A Timeless Guide to Fashion[edit]

The original version of the book has been translated into 19 languages.[1][2] In 2009, a revised and partly updated edition was published by h. f. ullmann. The new edition has also been translated into several languages.

Additional publications[edit]

After the publication of Gentleman. A Timeless Guide to Fashion, Roetzel wrote several other books, which were published in German. In April 2012, his latest book Mode Guide fuer Maenner was published by h. f. ullmann, along with the English version, A Guy's Guide To Style.[3][4]

Although Roetzel writes primarily about classic menswear, he collaborated with Claudia Piras and the photographer Rupert Tenison on the book British Tradition and Interiors.[5]

Roetzel has been quoted in German newspapers, such as Welt Online,[6] Der Tagesspiegel[7] and Manager Magazin Online,[8] with his opinions on men's fashion. He has appeared on German television several times since 2000 and has been guest in various radio shows all over his country.[9] Outside Germany, he contributes regularly to Alister & Paine Magazine, the Japanese men’s fashion magazine Men's Precious and the magazine Bespoken, which is published by the Brussels-based cloth merchant and distributed to its worldwide customers.

Public speaking[edit]

Roetzel has spoken at fashion shop openings, sales meetings of menswear companies and conferences of style consultants in Germany, Austria, The Netherlands, Poland, Belgium, France, the UK, the Czech Republic, the US, and Switzerland. In 2000, he spoke at the Annual Lunch of the British Menswear Guild in London.[10]
