Men And Style


David Coggins’ “Men And Style” is the most entertaining book I’ve read on the subject of style. It’s a compilation of essays, thoughts and ideas about menswear, acquired through interviews with various tastemakers in the world of fashion. The interviewees are forthcoming about everything from mortifying outfits worn to high school prom to bad smelling cologne they doused themselves in as naive youngsters;honest mistakes most of us can relate to, but still embarrassing situations to recall.

I laughed out loud while reading Men And Style. It made me think about my own personal style evolution and the maturation of my look over the years. I’ve certainly had my fair share of interesting style phases. For example, my hip-hop, Abercrombie, and skater phases in college left something to be desired.   

David Coggins promotes a style philosophy that I’ve grown to subscribe to;one that doesn’t follow the trends, is never outdated and transcends the times.  

It is my feeling that Men And Style deserves a space on every gentleman’s bookshelf.

With style,

Curtis Bright

      Laugh out loud funny at times. Patrick, thanks for sharing!

  2. Great review – I’ll have to pick up the book. I’ve switched to more of a “classic style” recently (with the help of a stylist) and I look better than ever. No more cartoon t-shirts and always wearing black tops and jeans. Any advice on bags and other accessories?

      Thanks, Dylan! I would recommend Filson any day when it comes to messenger, totes, and travel bags.

  3. Thanks for letting us know about the box. Seems like an interesting read. Will be buying it this week. Thanks
