For the stylishly inclined, Flammarion in association with GQ releases Suave In Every Situation, the English language edition of Comment Rester Chic En Toutes Circonstances, a guide for the contemporary man written by Monsieur Style at GQ France Gonzague Dupleix.
Filled with everything from genuine pearls of wisdom (“A gentleman is a role model. He is the mirror, reflecting the world as it should be-ruled by the heart”), to outrageous situational etiquette (how to drink from a shoe with aplomb!), Suave In Every Situation walks a fine line between being judgy, playful and even downright practical with advice that’s delivered with an unquestionably French savoir faire.
While this easy read will not turn you into a sartorial samurai, you will definitely infuse your repertoire with more refinement and effortlessly navigate the multitude of pitfalls Mr. Dupleix enumerates throughout the book. Although I wouldn’t take everything mentioned in Suave In Every Situation too seriously, you shouldn’t take it too lightly either.
