31 style terms every guy needs to know

Do you know your Cowichan from your Selvedge? Well, it’s about time you did and GQ was nice enough to present all 31 style terms for you to get acquainted with. This fun list has all the essentials for knowing those sometimes-tricky fashion terms, like Shetland Sweaters (not an ordinary sweater – this one comes from the Scottish Islands of Shetland) and the Schott Perfecto Motorcycle Jacket (the leather jacket famously worn by Brando in The Wild One).

Each fashion piece has a lengthier write-up by Jake Gallagher (weekly columnist for GQ’s “Dropping Knowledge”) and is illustrated by Brittany Fields. Go see how you rate on your men’s fashion IQ!
