Esquire Philippines puts a spotlight on style this March.

In his editor's note, Editor-in-Chief Erwin Romulo explains, “Style is deciding who you are and being able to perpetuate it.”

Erwin adds that this issue, “[…] is all about style rather than just fashion, and the way men express that in manner and dress.”

Gracing the cover is the dashing Richard Gomez. But sorry ladies, his palikero days are over.

He says, “I thought I was never going to get married. Akala ko mambababae lang ako all the way, e. And then I met Lucy [Torres]. I married her. Everything changed.”

At present, the actor/ athlete/ husband/ father is busy giving his political dream another go. He's eyeing the mayoralty post in Ormoc City.

“Yung sinasabi ng iba na puwede ka naman tumulong kahit hindi nasa public office. Yeah, you can. You can help one, two, ten people.

"But, when you’re in public office, you can help thousands of people,” Richard tells Esquire.

Other must-read items: essential advice on comporting one's self at the finest events in "The Well-Dressed Tippler," "The Essential Black-Tie Checklist," "How to Navigate a Formal Event," and "Do’s and Don’ts of a Crowded Bar."

In addition, artist-of-the-moment Leeroy New shows off the season’s statement-making pieces through a kaleidoscopic fashion feature.

Not to be missed: learning how to have "Fun with Your Clothes" and the "10 Things You Didn’t Know About Women" with designer Boom Sason, sitting down with Celine Lopez for ESQ&A, laughing at "Funny Joke from a Beautiful Woman" as told by Dawn Jimenez, and finding paradise with Jessy Mendiola— this month’s Woman We Love.


Food and Drinks Editor Erwan Heussaff also makes his case for the “superior evolution of sliced bread” with "The Esquire Guide to Sandwiches," a hefty feature on the most sumptuous loafs in the metro and a couple of manly must-do recipes.

The March issue of Esquire Philippines is available in newsstands and bookstores nationwide for P195.
