Is Charles Hix, the author of "Looking Good" and "How to Dress Your Man", still alive?

Google doesn't give me any biographical information.

Alive in 2008. See NYT story at the link about the enduring popularity of his books.

Thank you, R1! I'm glad he's alive and well (at least as of 2008).

I need advice on just the right shroud.

This is pretty great.

From the NYT story:

Earlier this month, after learning that Connecticut, where Mr. Hix has lived since 1986 with Robert Dahlin, his partner of 46 years, would allow gays to marry, he contacted a justice of the peace mentioned in a news article to see if he could schedule a wedding for himself and Mr. Dahlin.

The justice replied that he would be thrilled. “I have all your books,” he said.

Still have the book. Fun to relive the past when gays were really an outlaw group.

wow! memories of secretly wanting this book in high school.

I used to go to B. Dalton and Waldenbooks and sneak glances at "Looking Good" and especially "Working Out." It was like the Undergear catalogue before that existed. Ken Haak did the photography for "Working Out" and another one called "Summer Souvenirs," the cover of which still gets me hard.
