    So far our friend Alan Flusser has come out with:

    Clothes and ... the Man
    Making... the Man
    Style and... the Man
    Dressing... the Man

    He's talking more about the Man than your standard blaxploitation movie. It seems he is running out of present participles and clothing descriptors... He seems to come out with one of these every 5-7 years, generally updating and reediting previous material, and I'm sure it helps his bottom line... but what can he call his next works?

    1. Suiting the Man -- a natural
    2. Taste and the Man -- sounds rather sleazy
    3. Shoes and the Man (with Vass and Molnar?)
    4. Bespoke and the Man
    5. Tailoring the Man
    6. Creating the Man (too vague)

    any other thoughts?

    'Grooming the Man' and 'Accessorizing the Man' come immediately to mind, but I suppose the broadest possible title might be 'Glorifying the Man'--that should cover everything.

    Yes, from now on he will only write scrolls; no more books.

    "I don't go in for these back door shenanigans. Sure I'm flattered. Maybe even a little curious. But the answer is no."
