There are two types of men in the world – GQ men and the rest. GQ magazine has become the style bible for men, but to “be GQ” is much more than just being fashionable – it’s about style. But, what do I mean by style? Style includes being cultured, to have good taste, to have wide ranging interests from politics to art and literature to film, music, travel. Briefly, GQ has redefined the modern “Renaissance Man”.  Being GQ is about having a foot in the cultural zeitgeist without being a victim of the times. And of course, always a gentleman. What man wouldn’t want to be GQ?


This new tome, GQ Men, from Assouline pulls from the magazine’s extensive archives to showcase the amazing men that have embodied the magazine over the years, from Robert Redford to Ralph Lauren and even Johnny Depp. Far from being an instructional tome on how-to-be GQ, this beautiful photography book is a must have addition to any home library.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
