Beschreibung des Verlags
The best shoes to dance in are sneakers with no tread left.
Old ski lift tickets are not a fashion accessory.
Nothing is "fun for the whole family" unless the parents are under ten.
There's no such thing as classy luggage as long as you have to carry it.
With an irresistible combination of sharp wit, shrewd insight, and great common sense, Paisley Goes with Nothing offers men an invaluable arsenal of survival tactics for thriving in a modern world, including "Two Easy Pieces (Buying a Suit)", "Father Knew Zip (How to Shave)", "A Medium Is the Message--But So Is an Extra Large (What Your Wardrobe Says About You)", "Geeks Bearing Gifts (Buying Presents)", "House by You (Entertaining on Your Turf)", and dozens more that are as useful and enlightening as they are ingeniously, universally funny. An indispensable resource for every man (and a godsend for those in search of a perfect gift), it's society's last hope for keeping the word gentleman from becoming obsolete.
Bright, breezy, irreverent and opinionated, this how-to compendium by the editor-at-large of InStyle magazine assisted by the comedy writer who contributes ``Hot Sheet'' to Entertainment Weekly, begins with advice on how a sophisticated urban male should dress, then goes on to virtually every other aspect of his life. Rather than a collection of helpful hints, here is a series of ukases about skin and hair care, eyeglasses and scents, traveling, entertaining and being entertained, becoming a restaurant VIP, observing proper business etiquette and living alone or living with another. Some sample dicta: sneakers never look good; designer jeans are not really jeans; always shop alone; stand up straight; don't eat raw seafood anywhere; above all, remember that style is not fashion. But though $500 suits and $150 shoes are not within every male's reach, the book is consistently entertaining, even for those who can't practice what it preaches.
