"Women are into fashion, men are into style, style is forever" – Domenico Dolce
Womenswear progresses in leaps and bounds, fueled by the readiness of women to wear what may at the time be perceived as the radical or outrageous. Not so menswear –menswear evolves, slowly. But from what? Behind nearly every item in the modern male wardrobe is a "first of its kind" – the definitive item, often designed by a single company or brand for specialist use, on which all subsequent versions have been based (and originals of which are now collector items in the booming vintage market).
Icons of Men's Style examines, garment by garment, the most important and famous of these products – their provenance and history, the stories of their design, the brand/company that started it all and how the item shaped the way men dress today.
Josh Sims is a freelance style writer, contributing to the likes of The Financial Times, The Independent, The Independent on Sunday, Mail on Sunday, Channel 4, the BBC, Esquire, GQ, Wallpaper* and i-D. He is also author of Rock/Fashion (Omnibus), A Dictionary of Fashion Designers (Collins), Mary, Queen of Shops (BBC Books) and contributor to several fashion books from Taschen.
Explaining the What and Why makes this book a successful compilation of men's fashion iconography.
I have found that after filling out the must have pieces, I feel like there is not much more I am needing unless something wears.
I dress casually for work and for everything else, so this book may be of more help to people who don't wear suits regularly.
I fell in love with the cover...that picture of Gregory Peck! So handsome!
I did not need to look beyond the cover!
The book is fascinating.
I was intrigued not only because of the styles and clothing but the history behind the garments
I bought it as a gift for my fiancé and his adult son. They both love clothes and both wear them well.
It is read for men and women...actually for anyone that loves clothes! and history
