Guys, we know that most of you hate to shop: you make a list, check it twice, find the store, get in and get out. Thankfully, like The Lucky Shopping Manual for men, the GQ Style Manual is the one reference book that can help you achieve that mission while still looking cool. Not hipster cool, but, like, Steve McQueen or Michael Caine cool.
Whether you like it or not, bespoke dressing is back, and at just $10.99 (on newsstands through the end of the year), this special edition magazine cum reference guide is something no even slightly sartorial dude should go a single day more without. The GQ Style Manual has the potential to help any guy out there who secretly wishes he dressed like James Bond to actually dress like James Bond. Its head-to-toe, drawer to deep closet guide features tips on everything from how to properly buy and care for your shoes or how to properly match the width of your suit jacket lapels to your tie and shirt, to an elegant full-page argument about why buying your own tux and cufflinks makes fiscal sense — and is just good fun.
Don't mistake this for a hipster shopping handbook: the style icons featured range from classic and manly public figures like Muhammed Ali, Bobby Kennedy and Cary Grant to modern-yet-sartorial pop stars/actors like Justin Timberlake, Andre 3000, and Chris Pine.
At just $10.99 and on sale at newstands through the end of the year, it makes perfect sense to grab one and keep it around — or the perfect gift for any man on your holiday shopping list. Just ask my husband, who picked up his copy in the airport on the way to Hong Kong and returned with two custom tailored suits and matching dress shirts.
