Original Man

The Tautz Compendium of Less Ordinary Gentlemen

Celebrating style, individuality, and joie de vivre, this book showcases more than 80 original men who will inspire readers to lead a less ordinary life.

Original Man is a compendium of the stories of extraordinary men. From household names including Andy Warhol, Freddy Mercury, and Yves Saint-Laurent to lesser-known personalities, the men presented here are incredibly diverse, yet all share entirely original lives. Featuring famous hell-raisers such as Iggy Pop, indomitable explorers including Ernest Shackleton, visionaries like Federico Fellini, and some less mainstream personalities such as Quentin Crisp or Takeshi Kitano, these biographies are as gripping as any fiction.

This book is the brainchild of UK men’s fashion maven Patrick Grant. As Grant set about re-awakening the traditional Savile Row tailoring house of E. Tautz after a thirty-year slumber, he wanted to define the kind of man he aspired to be and to clothe. Original Man is the compelling result of his musings—a collection of portraits of men who go beyond a veneer of stylish attire to wring every last drop out of life with their actions, thoughts, or words in a manner scarcely seen nowadays.

Born in Edinburgh, Patrick Grant lived in five countries and worked in a number of different industries before his passion for clothing, craftsmanship, and British brands lead him to take over Savile Row tailors Norton & Sons in 2005. In 2009, he re-launched E. Tautz, the historic British sporting and military tailoring house. Regularly appearing in best-dressed lists in the UK and named in Esquire’s “Most Stylish Men in the World,” Grant makes frequent appearances on both BBC television and radio as a commentator on clothing history, manufacturing, and matters of men’s style and fashion.
