Late last year, a new voice in menswear burst onto the blogosphere—in a few short stream-of-consciousness freestyle posts, Fuck Yeah Menswear became one of the most-talked-about blogs in the fashion Tumblr cult. After a good streak, the FYM bloggers seemed to go on hiatus in December 2010, only resurfacing at sporadic intervals to post a handful of times between February and August of this year.
Fans of the hilarious menswear blog send-up site will be glad to hear that the anonymous funnymen behind FYM have just landed a book deal. Yup, Fuck Yeah Menswear is going to be a book. Publishers Marketplace reports:
F**K YEAH MENSWEAR, based on the Tumblr of the same name, a send-up of and tribute to the bizarre and colorful world of modern menswear, featuring freestyle fashion-inspired verses, photos, and illustrations, to Matthew Benjamin for Touchstone, by Monika Verma at Levine Greenberg Literary Agency (World).· Publishers Marketplace [Official Site, subscription req'd]
