Required Reading: The Mr Porter Paperback: The Manual for a Stylish Life, Vol. One


It’s officially the weekend, and while everyone else thinks about the bars and parties they’ll be visiting I’m looking for a low-key option for my stint out of the office. And yes, that will include a lot of reading.

Although I’m currently working on Truman Capote’s first novel Other Voices, Other Rooms, I’ve added another book to my required reading list. Mr Porter’s The Manual for a Stylish Life: Volume One ($35,, a comprehensive style guide for the modern man.

Throughout this volume of worthy style tips and advice, Editor-in-Chief Jeremy Langmead fills the pages with his immense fashion knowledge and insight, offering profiles of style icons, as well as few well-known dashing chaps from around the world. He also provides some much-needed advice for the modern man, touching on many topics from fashion and style to the best way of dancing at a wedding.

Yes, The Manual for a Stylish Life: Volume One sounds like a guaranteed spot on every fashionista’s required reading list.
