Rules For My Son is a collection of traditional, humorous, and urbane fatherly advice for boys. From the sartorial (“Men should not wear sandals. Ever”) to the practical (“Keep a copy of your letters. It makes it easier for your biographer”) to even a couple of sure-fire hangover cures (“There is no better remedy than a dip in the ocean”), the book of rules, photos and accompanying quotations is the quintessential instruction manual for becoming a Good Man – industrious, thoughtful, charming, and of course, well-dressed.

Hip and witty with a decidedly traditionalist flavour, Rules for My Newborn Son is meant to evoke simpler times when Father knew best and a suitable answer to “Why?” was “Because I said so.” Based on the hit blog and presented as a beautifully designed hardback, there is no better gift for the discerning father, father-to-be, or son, this Christmas.
