Item description for Guy Knits: Sweaters & Vests (Best of Knitter's Magazine series) by Rick Mondragon, Elaine Rowley & Alexis Xenakis...
From rugged to refined, and from casual to corporate, these 25 men's handknit projects are classics with style. A recent shift in the yarn world---away from novelty yarns to interesting standards, luxurious blends, and rich tweeds---ensures that these knits will be worn, look good, and fun to make. In addition to swatches highlighting new yarn choices, clear illustrations encourage the knitter to try color work, cables, or textured stitches for the first time. With the wide range of sizes and a special knit-to-fit section, these pullovers, cardigans, vests, and waistcoats work for men in all walks of life.

Keep your man/men warm. Aug 31, 2008
This book is perfect for the upcoming Fall/Winter season when the weather is chilly outside and you can sit in your most comforable chair or on our couch, watch a favorite movie and create a work of art for a Holiday gift or a Fall/Winter birthday. The designs are easy to do and you can always change yarn colours so that the gift will fit your special person to a "T".
I like this one Jun 4, 2008
This book has many patterns that as a man I found very nice. The patterns go from easy to not so easy, so you can learn as you go.
