I prefer "Style and the Manton".

[Manton]I need a single word that means "well-dressed man" -- and what other one is there?
So these two do not qualify.

Best I can come up with in two seconds are "Swell" and "Clotheshorse", the former being a better term, but hardly in the vernacular.

Better Refined (IMO) "The Art of Dressing" Or for those corny fellah, (Faustian Bargain I mean you) How about "Clothes Make the Man-ton" Ugh... JJF

If Dandy isn't a suitable name then maybe something along those same lines of meaning is what manton needs, albeit not as uhm... dated. Same goes for words like 'jaunty' and 'dapper.' I speak from a 20-year-old's perspective, and I can picture myself feeing a little metro when I bring it up to the cash at Chapters and have the cute girl with the auburn hair ring it through for me. So why not a word that conveys the same image or feeling but sounds a little more marketable? Clotheshorse conveys 'packrat,' to me. Debonair? Suave? Refined?

This is by far the best title I've seen so far. Unfortunately, it doesn't foreshadow the Prince-like character of the prose. Maybe you should just call it: "The Prince of Style".

How about "The style of Prince?" I would buy TWO copies if Manton would include a chapter "Pompadours: Are they Trad?". Also, it would be great if the book came with a compilation CD with a montage of sartorial greats scored with "Little Red Corvette" and of course "Purple Rain".

I'm going to blow the spelling of this one even allowing for the transliteration, but when I was in high school and doing myself up to go someplace really important (say, a Roxy Music concert) my father would eyeball me, shake his head and say, "a shtutzeh," Yiddish for a sport. Doing oneself up he referred to as fapitzing.

Perhaps one could just name it after a Roxy Music album, say "For Your Pleasure."

Sounds too much like an ad for Trojan.

Ha haha. How about "In Every Dreamhome a Heartache"... What is it with working-class 80s rockers from Newcastle and inflatable dolls? Both Bryan Ferry and Sting wrote songs about them.
