We are into the New Year and that fatal mixture of speed shopping and Christmas parties spent feeling old and alone has left you feeling in need of an image rehaul.
Cue Dylan Jones’ new read. With Mr. Jones being editor of GQ magazine, you would be forgiven for thinking this was simply a style guide but the book works as more of a lifestyle crash course, covering topics from Etiquette & Decorum to Elbow Grease & Skyhooks. This book is straight-talking, relatable and lacks the camped-up bravado of style guides, such as Off the Cuff by Carson Kressley, which can leave the reader feeling completely alienated and a bit out of the fashion circuit when told to buy a "pornographically hot cashmere sweater."
Filled with strange facts, great quotes and realistic advice; this book is worth the £14.99 price tag and the time you’ll spend imagining yourself as the man you really want to be.
