Twice a year, Esquire puts out a new edition of its Big Black Book, and without fail, fashion director Nick Sullivan and team manage to capture the current moment in men’s style and at the same time produce a volume that deserves to remain on your bookshelf as an evergreen reference. The fall/winter 2013 edition is no exception, featuring of-the-moment spreads on explorer-worthy outerwear and British tailoring, and comprehensive guides to such essential topics as tailoring and — why not? — how to bathe like a man. As always, it’s well worth your $9.95 — or $6.95 if you buy via Nick Sullivan’s curated sale on Gilt Man, which, in addition to the aforementioned, features a slew of Sullivan approved picks, from casual to tailored to an impossibly elegant mashup of the two.
