Purple Magazine: A Tour Through the New 'Big Black Book'

Fall's first essential purchase is here.

Along with a bumper crop of apples, a renewed need for moisturizer, and an excuse to break out the tweed (and maybe re-stock your bar), the arrival fall brings with it another edition of The Big Black Book, Esquire’s reliably compelling and collectible primer on men’s style (yes, it’s collectible; if you spend ten bucks on a magazine, you’re going to keep it.) Over at ACL, Gilt MANual contributor Michael Williams gives the BBB a thorough perusal, wherein he learns about different breeds of sheep and their unique wools, alongside other arcane (which is to say fascinating) information. There’s also a piece on friend-of-the-MANual Billy Reid shooting things down South, for those who think of animals as dinner as well as clothing, and what looks to be an excellent story on classic fall coats. Congratulations to the Esquire team on another job well done. (And to Williams for the choice of steel table as backdrop.)
