Overview

A handbook of style for men, both witty and practical, based on the hugely popular "Things A Man Should Know..." series in Esquire magazine.

Do women notice shoes? Should khakis have pleats? Is there any level of fitness that justifies wearing a tank top in public? What, exactly, is a "dickie," and would it be a mistake to be caught dead with one? While there are many aspects of life about which men are confident, assured, even brilliant, unfortunately style is not always one of them. And when it comes to dressing and comporting oneself well, life is too short to feel unprepared--laughably unprepared--in the face of so many sartorial options. So remember: Wearing a suit does not make you a "suit." Casual Friday does not excuse the visibility of chest hair. And what should you do if someone calls you a "dandy"? Open closet. Remove contents. Begin again. Most guys might not admit it, but what they don't know about style could fill a book. This is the book.

* From Esquire magazine--renowned for its style and wit
* A highly original approach to the subject--disarmingly witty and extremely practical at the same time
* The perfect gift for the man who needs a little guidance--or the mom, sister, wife, or girlfriend who wants to give it to him
* Filled with black and white photos of Pedro, the book's adorable bulldog mascot

That's exactly it. It's a great book and very humorous. It gives facts that people do and don't know and when you think about the facts you want to follow them because it is in actuality what a man should know about style.

This book is very a) humorous, b) informative, c) easy-reading, and d) inexpensive, which makes it a very good book. Sure, you may already know this stuff, then buy it for a), c) and d). It's written with the same sharp, concise, witty writing style of the Esquire magazine. If you find it too expensive, then you definitely should read this book, because you probably dress cheaply as well.

i really liked this book. it's concise, funny and gives practical advice to the average man. yeah, i guess some high fashion snob knows enough not to read this book, but for someone like my husband--good looking, but too in love with jeans and a t-shirt--it's full of great pointers. plus i love the photos of the bulldog--they're much easier for my hubbie to look at than some male model. girls--your man needs this book.
