Leading menswear writer Simon Crompton and photographer Jamie Ferguson have combined on a new book, entitled The Style Guide.
Although structured as a series of street-style portraits, the book deliberately contains analysis, advice and practical information alongside the imagery.
Says Simon: “I always felt too many style books focused on pretty photos rather than why clothing actually looked good. So every outfit in our new book comes with notes on why it works, in terms of style, colour or cut.”
The men featured in the book are many of the leading lights of international menswear. Yasuto Kamoshita, creative director of United Arrows, is pictured on the cover, while inside are the likes of Michael Drake, Valentino Ricci and Michael Williams.
Printed in London on a beautiful uncoated paper, with otter binding and a gloss insert, The Style Guide is a luxury publication suited to the elegant clothing within.
