This is an auction for OFF THE CUFF: THE ESSENTIAL STYLE GUIDE FOR MEN, by Carson Kressley.

"Kressley, the stylist from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, lays down fashion rules for men in this thorough—and thoroughly entertaining—style guide. He sets the tone in his genuine, lively introduction, as he discusses growing up gay in Allentown, Pa. "I'm here, I'm queer, and I can help you," he says, continuing, "I was going to rescue abused teacup yorkies, but then I realized there weren't any, so straight men it is!" Telling readers to consider him their "very own fashion fairy godstylist," Kressley covers the wardrobe, from hats to shoes and from overcoat to underwear. He clearly explains his fashion logic and firmly asserts his hobbyhorse irks ("I'm on a mission to eradicate pleated pants in America.... They give more room for ugly lumps and bulges, and there's only one bulge we want to see"). Kressley's irreverent though encouraging personality translates nicely to the page, and is a welcome reprieve from many of the stuffy men's fashion guides in bookstores. Topping his list on what a good pair of jeans can do for you? "They should get you laid. Oh, come on. Stop pretending to be shocked."
