9781851775569: Abc Of Men's Fashion

“A man should look as if he has bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care, and then forgotten all about them.”

For all men—and indeed all women who are interested in men’s clothes—here is an alphabetical guide to men’s fashion written with wit and expert knowledge. From the etiquette of dressing for all occasions to the meaning of technical terms, Hardy Amies’s skillful eye guides you safely through style decisions on everything from blazers and brogues to skiing and sandals. No man can afford to be without this classic style bible.

EXHIBITION SCHEDULE:

Victoria and Albert Museum, London, September 22, 2007–January 6, 2008

”There’s no such thing as a designer of menswear-—it’s only history. The suit around the world is based on the english suit, which began in about 1670.

Any man, whether he’s american, japanese, french or whatever, who wants to be seriously well dressed, looks to the englishman’s suit for how to achieve it.”
—from abc of men’s fashion
