Size Matters: The Book For Men Spring/Summer 2011

Toronto ON, March 28, 2011 – The spring edition of Canada’s only men’s lifestyle magazine,The Book for Men Spring/Summer 2011, hits newsstands this week.

The Book for Men Spring/Summer 2011, from the publishers of SHARP magazine, is a 210-page guide to the season’s hottest fashion trends as well as a 30-page “MANual” of how-to advice on more than 50 manly MUSTS such as beach etiquette, shoe care, manscaping and even fractional jet ownership.

“The opportunity to develop one’s own sense of style is a relatively new phenomenon among Canadian men. We have been liberated from fashion dictates and are free to dress however we want,” says Yoni Goldstein, editor. “The Book For Men celebrates the style renaissance we are witnessing in Canada.”

For the first time, the magazine features a series of fashion and lifestyle essays, including an exploration of bespoke suiting from Montreal and Toronto. The magazine’s fashion features include leading menswear designs shot on location in Los Angeles, Toronto and the Florida’s famed Bay Hill golf course.

With the release of this second edition of The Book for Men, SHARP has once again raised the standard for what readers can expect of a Canadian men’s magazine. Bigger and better, this edition covers more designer clothing, watches and shoes, more grooming tips, cars and other luxury accoutrements.

The Book For Men is exclusively produced by Contempo Media and is available online, on newsstands across Canada and in bookstores, such as Chapters/Indigo, as well as Shoppers Drug Mart and Loblaws.
