9780525948360: Off the Cuff: The Essential Style Guide for Men--And the Women Who Love Them

Carson Kressley is the most recognizable name in men’s fashion today. With a legion of fans who hang on his every tip and quip, Kressley has single-handedly made it cool for the average guy to care about clothes. In Off the Cuff, Carson makes over the tired men’s style guide with an edgy, hilarious romp through every man’s closet: from socks to scarves, from jeans to leather jackets, from the dreaded pleated khaki to the classic pink oxford.

Trading trends for timeless style, Off the Cuff helps readers abandon the chase for "the newest black" or tomorrow’s version of the mandarin collar. Kressley delivers a guide that mines each man’s unique personality and physique and lets readers in on his best-kept secret—that the only thing sure to stay in fashion is the man who wears what’s right for him.

Vibrantly illustrated with full-color photographs, and written with Carson’s signature wit and irreverence, Off the Cuff is poised to deliver what Queer Eye fans have always wanted: Carson in their closet.

About the Author:

A standout member of the Fab Five on the hit television series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, Carson Kressley is also a fashion expert for Us magazine and an independent stylist. He received his first couture garment as a child and began developing his fashion sense on the playground. Since those auspicious beginnings, he has earned degrees in Finance and Fine Art from Gettysburg College (where he graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa), and is also a nationally ranked equestrian.

From AudioFile:

Carson Kressley relishes the role of every straight man's "fairy god-stylist" in this irreverent but dead-on guide to men's fashion. His tone is equal parts catty, quirky, understanding, and supportive. He projects an underlying friendliness that makes the book both entertaining and helpful in navigating the world of men's clothing. Covering everything from hats to shoes, underwear to overcoats, Kressley outlines what to pursue and what to abandon, with tips for every wallet size and waistline. He reads his catchy writing as though bantering through your closet, and his wit leaves you wondering what he'll come up with next. If you need help getting dressed in the morning and want a good laugh while doing so, let Carson show you the way in this flamboyant package.
