The Metrosexual Guide to Style
A Handbook for the Modern Man
From what to order and how to order it to what to wear and how to wear it, the essentials of "metrosexual" savoir faire.
The old-fashioned, repressed, un-moisturized man has been banished to the hinterlands and a new breed is
taking center stage. He is a man of style, sophistication, and security, just as strong and confident as his
predecessor, but far more diverse in his interests, his tastes, and, most importantly, his self-image.
He may be seen at an NBA game one night and an art gallery opening the next. Able to navigate any social
setting, he is informed, influential, intriguing, and very much in vogue these days. He is the new male ideal: the metrosexual man.
So how can the average Joe keep up with this new version of cool? How should he behave, what
shoes should he wear, and what CDs should he have in his collection? Answers to these questions
and so many other pressing concerns can be found in The Metrosexual Guide to Style. Filled with
entertaining anecdotes, famous quotes, helpful hints, dos and don'ts, recommendations and potential
pitfalls, this handy guidebook covers everything from dining out to fashion and personal style, home
decor to the Metro-mindset. It is the one-stop shop for the impeccably groomed and savvy modern man.
"His manual, like a proper etiquette guide, is a handbook for living... Watching 'Queer Eye,'
I worry about how the poor made-over slobs are going to fare after the Fab Five leave them...
Here's the manual to throw in with all their other booty."
