"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."
—New York Magazine
"Being a modern man isn t easy; luckily, French style guide Suave in Every Situation has all the answers."
"Filled with everything from genuine pearls of wisdom ('A gentleman is a role model. He is the mirror, reflecting the world as it should be-ruled by the heart'), to outrageous situational etiquette ('how to drink from a shoe with aplomb!'), Suave In Every Situation walks a fine line between being judgy, playful and even downright practical with advice that s delivered with an unquestionably French savoir faire."
"Rebels eschew the boring suits of a traditional hotel exec wardrobe. But, what should one wear to a BBQ or on election day? When is a turtleneck appropriate and can one adopt elements of a grunge look and still be considered a gentleman? This book humorous and, natch, stylish take on all things sartorially smart contains the answers."
"...suave is something that can be practiced and mastered by those who dare to be urbane, dignified, and debonair. The trick is to learn the rules so that you know how to play the game. Then, you can break them at will, not as a faux pas but as an act of supreme self awareness."
