F*ck Yeah Menswear Got A Book Deal, And You Didn’t
Admittedly, Fuck Yeah Menswear is something we don’t always get. It’s insidery to the max, though we do enjoy a good fashion verse like “OD at CO-OP. IRL at Neimans.” Alas, said successful Tumblr now has a book deal.
In its 10 months of existence, Fuck Yeah Menswear has produced 52 posts, only 8 of which have been written in 2011. Maybe the anonymous author has been saving his (well, we assume it’s a he) best stuff for his forthcoming tome? A publishing industry friend of ours sent along the following blurb from Publishers Marketplace:
F**K YEAH MENSWEAR, based on the Tumblr of the same name, a send-up of and tribute to the bizarre and colorful world of modern menswear, featuring freestyle fashion-inspired verses, photos, and illustrations, to Matthew Benjamin for Touchstone, by Monika Verma at Levine Greenberg Literary Agency (World).
We’ve reached out to the folks involved and are still waiting on details, but it sounds like this thing won’t come out for a year or two. All we can say is #browear before #hoewear.
