'How can a bush-league moustache become a fringe benefit?...
... every aspect of looking good is prescribed here with style and flair in a winning package especially designed for the winning male.' (from the blurb).

Bruce Weber's first photography book. Looking Good is a complete book of men's grooming, from head to toe. The advice from GQ, Playboyand Town & Country columnist Charles Hix is delivered with wit and panache. Often overlooked, this is an important Weber item. The early photographs of young, exceptionally good-looking men are a precursor for all of Weber's later work - his fashion photography and books such as The Andy Book and Bear Pond. The shower shots are pure Calvin Klein, before Weber did Calvin Klein. The first edition is surprisingly scarce in this condition.
