Editorial Reviews

Review

Riotously funny, a love letter, a sendup and an Ouroboros all in one.” (The New York Times)

“It's the easiest, and probably most entertaining, way to learn how to reach ideal levels of crispiness…” (GQ)

“From tumblr hype to printed glory, the sharp, satirical tone of Fuck Yeah Menswear successfully captures the voice of a generation. Not since Do's And Don'ts first published have we been this excited about a fashion book.” (Complex)

“The latest in the line of blog-to-book sensations, Fuck Yeah Menswear is a hilarious new tome for the sartorially obsessed.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

As other reviews have mentioned and hinted at, you shouldn't pick this up if you expect actual menswear "knowledge". Most of this book involves menswear photography paired with something resembling poetry coming from a guy a little too obsessed with hypebeast slang. I could forgive this if the book was funny or interesting, but even as light coffee table material, it falls pretty flat.

Overall, would not recommend. Anyone who finds this kind of thing amusing has probably gotten their fill of it on the blogs this book cribs from.

If you assume this satire is strictly for those interested in menswear, you'd be slightly wrong. Naturally if you have no interest in hilarious prose and actual, genuine tips on styling, then you might not want it.

Don't be put off by the cuss words and slang. This isn't a serious guide to menswear. It's a guide to menswear written in jest, which is far more entertaining than an encyclopedia of terms and instructions.

I bought this book as a gift for my boyfriend who is a fan of menswear. I wanted to see what it was all about for myself and after reading, I felt it necessary that I write a review. Admittedly, when I first began reading, I didn't necessarily "get" all of the jokes. I began skimming through pages, skipping over some of the FYMW raps (?) that are what the original blog is comprised of. When I did stop at the other parts (Style Archetypes, etc), I found myself laughing (OUT LOUD!), which then made me go BACK to read the raps (? are they poems? slam poetry? sue me.) and then loved it.

The images are beautiful. The writing is intelligent, witty and an all-around riot.

If you follow menswear blogs, this book will floor you. Sartorial humor at its best, and it actually does provide a lot of useful information. A menswear guide (Bible?) if you will. Unfortunately, if you are not a follower of the blog scene, you may have a hard time understanding any of the humor. Then again, if you've even heard of this book, you probably are the former.

Hilarious treatment of todays fashion industry. A novel approach, both funny and informative. Worth a read if you want to update your style and get a good laugh.

This book represents a great sense of style, not only does the book have unbelievable images of current men’s clothing trends but it is also written extremely creatively. It is written in a sense where it gets the buyers attention while hooking them on the written descriptions so they do not just look at the pictures. It’s not just a guide to current men’s fashion but it is also a lifestyle guide. If you follow the guidelines given, it transforms one’s basic life into the lifestyle of a crispy clean gentleman. This book expresses much knowledge for the ones looking for a lifestyle change. I would highly recommend this book to those looking for change and who are not scared to step out of their comfort zone.

Nice book to read when you are "doing your business, in the restroom."

The book doesn't go into too much detail about certain items or looks
of the clothes the people are wearing.

Its a good read, a nice book to have laying around for friends and family
to read while lounging around.

This book is awful. It was supposed to be a bit sarcastic with some interesting sartorial insight. Photographs and articles with actual content are few and far between and offer no further insight than a quick google search. The book is mostly filled with long drawn out poems that are painfully difficult to read and pages of ranting with no discernible purpose or direction. Save your cash.

Gives examples of mostly contemporary trends. (example: defines a duffle coat as "essential" before a timeless pea coat.) Useful for the modern "Frat boy". Cleverly worded book... well written even. Makes you think that they know what their talking about. Meant to be a more humorous coffee table piece than an informative coffee table book.
