Even the most pulled-together men need a style refresher course on the do's, don'ts and why-nots of fashion, which is exactly why we tapped Lloyd Boston to answer a list of clothing conundrums for this month's "Gentlemen's Guide."
Boston is a trusted style expert, renowned TV host and best-selling author of four fabulous books: The Style Checklist: The Ultimate Wardrobe Essentials For You,Before You Put That On: 365 Daily Style Tips For Her, Make Over Your Man: The Women's Guide To Dressing Any Man In Her Life and Men of Color: Fashion, History, Fundamentals.
You may also recognize the former host of HGTV's "Closet Cases" from his numerous appearances on "The Oprah Show" and more recently "The Nate Berkus Show" as he works to make the world a more classically-chic place one makeover at a time.
Boston is clearly the go-to guy for fashion conscience folks looking for timeless style advice void of fleeting trends.
With that said, we asked the "fashion guru" 20 questions about men's fashion and style that will keep them looking good now and for years to come. Boston tackled everything from "What are the top five wardrobe essentials?" to "Are 'murses' (aka man purses) a must-have accessory?"
