A very good copy of this scarce definitive work on the subject of men's fashion. It is a fully comprehensive survey, with in-depth text and numerous illustrations and archival images. A History of Men's Fashion follows the sartorial evolution of the male wardrobe from the era of Beau Brummell, which created the model of the gentleman and the dandy, to the "anti fashion" trends of the early 1990s.
