For Benny, it’s the taxidermy alligator head holding his TV remote. For Bill, it’s a broom carved from a solid hickory branch. For Bob, it’s a 1946 Wurlitzer Bubbler Jukebox. These are a few of the finds and heirlooms these collectors call their favorite ‘mantique.’ Like Benny tells his guests when they step into his 1,000-square-foot apartment packed with taxidermy and tobacciana: “This isn’t Rooms to Go.”

Mantiques: A Manly Guide to Cool Stuff takes you inside these collections and more as it humorously surveys the weird and wonderful vintage stuff dudes like best, through more than 400 full-color photographs, while documenting the rise of mantiques as big business all over the world. Each chapter features today’s hottest mantiques with complete descriptions and recent auction values.

Topics range from how a gentleman should wear an authentic, vintage Aloha Shirt to how to pick your first Patek Philippe to why first-gen Apple computers now bring more than $600,000 at auction. Chapters include Tools, Barware, Surfing Memorabilia, Hunting & Fishing, Oddities, Movie Memorabilia, Racy Pulps & Novelties, Men’s Fashion & Watches, Guns & Knives, Rock & Roll, and more.
