#012: Cator Sparks - TheManual.com

Cator Sparks, editor-in-chief of men's lifestyle website The Manual, joins me for a conversation that takes us from Atlanta, to London, to Harlem, to Charleston. In between nips of peaty Scotch, he tells me about his journey from raver to self-described "dandy," which takes us from the world of New York fashion, to freelance writing for the New York Times, T Magazine, and Vanity Fair, to editing The Manual since 2012. (He also might be good friends with a writer of one of the best narrative nonfiction books I've read in a long time.) Cator also shares some of his favorite spots in Charleston, why he thinks Southerners are better dressed than New Yorkers, and what it means to be a man in 2018.
