David Coggins's Men and Manners: Essays, Advice and Considerations
Today's man may know how to dress with style, but does he know how to behave? Though the rules of civility have changed along with the world, Men and Manners: Essays, Advice and Considerations believes in manners. This book doesn't tell you which fork to use or how to write a thank you note. But it is going to remind you of basic, respectful rules you may have forgotten or have chosen to ignore. Comprised of short essays, shorter interviews, and lists of guidelines for Men
of all ages, this provides an honest, playful, and humorous look at the conflicted state of manners today. Interviews with fashionable Men
reveal their hard and fast rules, pet peeves and grievances, Personal
fiascos, and lingering doubts about etiquette. Subjects that may fluster today's man-such as tipping, toasting, texting, grooming, dating, dressing for air travel, office behavior, and Home
decor-are explored with the trademark combination of dry wit and self-deprecating attitude that has made David Coggins one of the most well-respected men's style writers today. With humorous illustrations and contributions from modern male style icons, Men and Manners makes the case for being the man who offers the best seat to his companion, who knows when to pick up the tab, and who remembers to do what's right even if it isn't always rewarded.
