|out of print
This curious, sprawling review of several centuries of Western men’s fashion is brimming with photos, illustrations and archival material, taking readers on a whirlwind chronological tour of the most popular, proper, handsome and ridiculous clothing styles from the Renaissance right up to the beginnings of punk, disco and hip hop in the 1970s. From leisure and formal wear to colonial and factory garb, just about everything imaginable is covered. Interludes featuring notable developments in women’s fashion, such as corsets and nylon hose, make appearances as well.
