Complete lack of men's clothing.
on 15 February 2008
If, like me, you work in men's vintage fashion, and you have high hopes for this book, here's a warning: STEER CLEAR OF IT.
Apart from several photographs regarding men's 18th Century fashion in the first volume, there is NOTHING on men's fashion whatsoever. As for the second volume, zero! No pictures at all regarding men's fashion throughout the whole of the 20th Century. A serious omission, even more so if you deal in men's clothing from the 1920's onwards.
I'm so disappointed with this that I'm sending it back two hours after receiving it.
PS: If you're interest is strictly in women's clothing, this book has some stunning pictures.
