'Fuck Yeah Menswear' by Kevin Burrows and Lawrence Schlossman
I like basics, I always do. In this book, I find all the basic menswear style theories. Like men's essentials, denim, Ivy look, preppy style, street styles, street snaps, stylish men's lifestyle, trade show etc. The writing is funny but very informative.

The description and the illustration are so to the point that I find myself and my friends all inside these eight group of styles. Really amazing.
