The folks at MR. PORTER know a fair thing or two about living the good life. Subsequently, adding The MR. PORTER Manual For a Stylish Life Volume 1 ($35) to your ever-evolving style library is an easy recommendation. The new paperback is compiled by the site’s editor-in-chief, Jeremy Langmead, and provides detailed analysis of timeless style icons (with slight British bias) in addition to plenty of practical and snark-infused advice on everything from proper masseuse interactions to packing ground rules and tips on what to wear for life’s most perplexing occasions. Small touches like a letterpress cover and silk ribbon bookmark also insure passers by don’t think you’re re-reading the Da Vinci Code for the fiftieth time.
