Today’s man may know how to dress with style, but does he know how to behave? Though the rules of civility have changed along with the world, Men and Manners believes in manners. This book doesn’t tell you which fork to use or how to write a thank you note. But it is going to remind you of basic, respectful rules you may have forgotten or have chosen to ignore. Comprised of short essays, shorter interviews, and lists of guidelines for men of all ages, this book provides an honest, playful, and humorous look at the conflicted state of manners today. Subjects that may fluster today’s man†•such as tipping, toasting, texting, grooming, dating, office behavior, and home decor†•are explored with the trademark combination of dry wit and self-deprecating attitude that has made David Coggins one of today’s most well-respected men’s style writers. With humorous illustrations and contributions from some of today’s male style icons, Men and Manners makes the case for being the man who offers the best seat to his companion, who knows when to pick up the tab, and who remembers to do what’s right even if it isn’t always rewarded.

New York Times Bestseller Men and Style reaches beyond standard “what to wear” advice: It is equal parts style guide and intriguing conversation about the masculine identity within the world of fashion. David Coggins explores the history of men’s style and learns from some of the most notable tastemakers in the industry and beyond. Its essays and interviews discuss the lessons men learned from their fathers, the mistakes they made as young men, and how they emerged to become better men. Some of the most dapper men in the world discuss bad mustaches, misguided cologne choices, and unfortunate prom tuxedos. All the men here have arrived at a place in the world and have a keen understanding about how they fit in it. Men and Style celebrates singular men who’ve lived well and can tell us about how they earned their worldview. They’re smart enough to absorb the wisdom that’s hidden in the world, and even smarter to wear that wisdom lightly.
