About This Book

A duo of men’s fashion and contemporary culture experts present a witty, entertaining account of the modern gentleman through vivid illustrations.
Two confirmed men’s style specialists have crafted a humorous guide for navigating the perilous waters of modern life. This style bible offers wry and witty advice for every situation imaginable and keys to understanding masculine style à la française.
Men today are faced with myriad choices that reflect on their personal style, and it can be baffling to know what to do. What role should you take on at a barbecue? Would Marcello Mastroianni have puffed on an electronic cigarette? What can you steal from Kurt Cobain’s style? Why does wearing a turtleneck exude such masculinity? Should you hit the sidewalk on a hoverboard? What should you wear to cast your vote on election day?
How to Be Suave in Every Situation is the ultimate guide to a tasteful and sophisticated life. Laying down the law on style and proper decorum for men of the twenty-first century, this volume enlightens the male population with the secrets to becoming a cultured, contemporary gentleman. The ultimate sartorial and etiquette guide, illustrated by Jean-Philippe Delhomme, this book is required reading for men of all ages.

  • "French fashion illustrator Jean-Philippe Delhomme and the journalist Gonzague Dupleix address common fashion questions for men (with a great sense of humor) in their new book Suave in Every Situation: A Rakish Style Guide for Men, out April 11 from Flammarion. . . . The book’s wry, highly specific advice applies to both fashionable guys and anyone who’s just stylishly curious, like how to wear white jeans or a snorkeling mask."
