G. Bruce Boyer Book Signing

G. Bruce Boyer Book Signing


One could argue there is a canon of literature on men’s dress.  G. Bruce Boyer is a gentleman who would certainly have at least one of his books in said canon, in short he is a legend in the world of menswear literature.  Over the years he has worked on Town & Country, GQ and Esquire as well as his own books.  His book Rebel Style is one of my favorites, I stumbled upon it in a random Covent Garden bookstore this summer and immediately bought it.  Well, Mr. Boyer has struck again.  This time he penned a booked titled Gary Cooper: Enduring Style.  The book is 95% pictures of Mr. Cooper over the years, and great pictures they are.  I should note there is also a forward by Ralph Lauren and a note from Maria Cooper Janis (Gary’s daughter).

Last night I was able to attend a book signing by Mr. Boyer and Mrs. Cooper-Janis at Leffot.  The book is not to be released until November 29th but advance copies were on sale last night.  Naturally, I picked one up.  It was an honor to meet and talk briefly with Mr. Boyer, who is one of my inspirations for starting this blog.  I was also able to meet Alan Flusser who is another household name in the menswear world and Christian Chensvold of Dandyism.net and Ivy-Style.com (Ivy-Style being one of my favorite blogs) who is another gentleman whose content I greatly respect.  All in all the event was a nice one, my personal highlight being the below picture.  But I do recommend that anyone with a keen interest in classic menswear pick up a copy November 29th.

Christian Chensvold, G. Bruce Boyer & Myself. Note how all of our ties are just a little bit off, oh, and the pocket squares.

As Mr. Chensvold, Mr. Flusser and Mr. Boyer do; keep up the good fight,



  1. Everything said made a bunch of sense. However, what about this? what if you added a little content? I am not saying your information is not solid, but what if you added something that makes people want more? I mean G. Bruce Boyer Book Signing is a little boring. You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article titles to get people to click. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab people excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would make your website a little livelier.
