We here at Esquire unveiled our first Big Black Book. We felt that — while we did and continue to report back from the front lines of the fashion and style world each month — men needed, and deserved, something more. While fashion, as an industry, depends on change to survive, this statement is as true today as it was back in the fall of ’06. Our most recent issue of the Big Black Book, for spring/summer 2014, will be our 14th. Now, we’ve taken the best—the most vital—of these seasonal editions and collected them into one hardcover monster that can serve as a North Star for any man who wants to live a life that balances outward aesthetics with personal significance. It can be done, and the Biggest Black Book Ever can show you how.
