HISTORY OF MEN'S FASHION: What the Well Dressed Man is Wearing
Everything you ever wanted to know about men's clothing - and so much more - from the exact hour Nelson lost his right eye to the type of palm needed for a Panama hat, what Cary Grant's tailor had to do to his shoulders - and those all-important questions of what to where, when and why, including when to wear a bow tie (surely 'never' is the only...
Everything you ever wanted to know about men's clothing - and so much more - from the exact hour Nelson lost his right eye to the type of palm needed for a Panama hat, what Cary Grant's tailor had to do to his shoulders - and those all-important questions of what to where, when and why, including when to wear a bow tie (surely 'never' is the only answer?). A quirky book full of facts that you never realised you needed to know, including the exact thickness of animal hair used to create must-have fashion items, including suits. Provocative, and controversial at times - but always very well dressed. REVIEWS "Nicholas Storey charts a quirky way through male fashion in an amusing and witty investigation." -Practical Family History"His depth of knowledge in his subject is a delight. It's all here. Hats off." -Country Life"Ever since the French Revolution, the well dressed man has striven to emulate the ideal of the well dressed English gentleman...when you get the authentic English perspective written by an Englishman, it is cause for celebration." -www.cutterandtailor.com"Leaders of fashion all share one thing in common: a discerning penchant for the English sartorial standard. This book covers all the main areas rather well, just how Beau Brummell would have specified." -Maxim"...it is excellent....unlike any author in the last twenty years, NJS nails down the essence of British style in a very entertaining way. He also defends our cultural treasure...in a bold and manly manner that is worth the price of the book itself...It is a style that is likely going to make the many good lessons contained in the 'History of Men's Fashion' palatable and accessible for readers." -Michael Alden, founder of www.thelondonlounge.net"Now and again, well-dressed men do well to apply the brakes to the runaway train of fashion. Anyone aiming for timeless elegance, rather than temporary chic, will benefit from Storey's authoritative, but readable book. Not only does he go through the origins and correct form of classic clothing, he also has useful lists of stockists and invaluable maintenance advice." -Esquire magazine
