The Mr Porter Paperback : The Manual for a Stylish Life - Volume Two Paperback / softback
The first volume of The Mr Porter Paperback: The Manual for a Stylish Life is a witty compendium of life and style advice for the modern man.
Compiled by Mr Porter's Editor-in-Chief Jeremy Langmead, it covers everything from the essential (how to take care of dress shoes or charm the in-laws) to the just-in-case (how to pull off daring feats or dance at a wedding).
Derived from the site's online journal (which has a large readership), the diverse content includes interviews with male icons inside and outside the fashion world (John Pawson, David Hockney, Irvine Welsh...); profiles of style icons past and present (Jean-Paul Belmondo, Bob Dylan, River Phoenix, Haile Selassie, Tom Waits and many more); mini-features on fashion classics including the knitted tie, the biker jacket, the polo shirt; sixty pages of 'The Knack', snippets of advice on everything from how to behave in a spa to how to mix a Bloody Mary; and much more.
The cover is crafted to evoke traditional letterpress printing methods and the book comes with a silk ribbon bookmark.
