Review

Men's interest in fashion and the role of fashion in constructing masculine identity have so far not been investigated in depth. The Men's Fashion Reader is an important work exploring all aspects of men and fashion - from design to production, communication and consumption. At last an ideal resource is available to scholars, students and professionals. -- Simona Segre Reinach, Iuav University, Venice Invaluable contributions to the field of fashion, dress and textile studies. Social Anthropology/Anthropolgie Sociale This rich anthology leaves one asking 'How did we manage without?'. ... The Men's Fashion Reader provides a critical resource for fashion and cultural studies. Magazine for the University of Technology, Sydney Examining the history, culture and identity of men's fashion, The Men's Fashion Reader is an in-depth work exploring masculinity, the evolution of menswear, the rise of subculture and the era of consumption. An essential introduction for any man looking to explore the business and theory behind men's fashion. The Montebury Magazine

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An eclectic collection of generally well-written essays on sartorial matters. It does not pretend to be a comprehensive review of men's fashion, instead posing as a compendium of scholarly discussions on various crucial innovations/phases in the development of style. As such, it's best dipped in and out of, reading an essay at a time, rather than trying to plough through it all over a few short sessions. Sometimes, it lacks a little literary flair but there is no doubting the depth of knowledge in these pages. If you have a serious interest in the history of men's clothing and its sociocultural interactions, this book is a real asset.
