Description - History of Men's Fashion by Nicholas Storey
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. AUTHOR: In his first book, Barrister Nicholas Storey explores his passion for clothes and the personalities who wore or created them. SELLING POINTS: .
