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: "Nicholas Storey charts a quick path through male fashion in an amusing and witty investigation." Practical Family History May 2009 "..there has been nothing like 'History of Men's Fashion' published in the past fifty years." asuitablewardrobe.com 75 b/w photos integrated
