We’re picking up the gift guide we started last year with this lovely book by Assouline: The Allure of Men by Francois Baudot. A collection of the most desired, envied, and debonair men in history. Paintings and photographs of famous and lesser-known figures dating back almost 200 years, embodying centuries of elegance and style over 128 pages.
“Allure is what is left to man when he’s forgotten all about
the ways and habits of elementary stylishness”
— François Baudot
