5.0 out of 5 stars Impress Friends with this Hilarious Guide, Coffee-Table Book, November 15, 2012

This review is from: Fuck Yeah Menswear: Bespoke Knowledge for the Crispy Gentleman (Paperback)
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.
