100 Years of Menswear
A rich, comprehensive collection of images covering the revolution in menswear over the last 100 years with text by fashion historian Cally Blackman.

Rare photography and illustrations reveal the elegant tailoring of Savile Row and tough khaki and denim of the uniform and workplace giving way to an exuberant array of styles and colors as the century progresses. Packed with images of Hollywood style icons, the artist personalities of the 1930s, and more, the evolution of menswear from practical to peacock is explored in an array of rarely seen photographs and illustrations.

The impact of Pierre Cardin, Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, and other designers is contrasted with the street fashion of the 1960s, punk, and the club scene to bring together the story of the flourishing menswear market in one invaluable book.

A unique collection, 100 Years of Menswear will prove indispensable for all fashion students, historians of dress, and lovers of men’s clothes.

• Getting Engaged (popping the question, finding a ring)

• Post-Wedding (honeymooning, thank-you notes, newlywedding)
• And much more!

Richly illustrated chapters offer advice on how to wear (and accessorize) six key wardrobe components: suits, sport coats, trousers, shirts, ties, and tuxedos.
