Wonderful story of a man's sentimental journey through Italy on a Vespa called Sophia. This book should appeal to all lovers of two wheeled transport, sentimentalists and Vespa lovers alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Proper Savile Row, 11 Feb. 2009
A look into the background of the proper tailors on and off Savile Row. I did notice a few mistakes in the editing, but these are all cleared up later on in the book. I learnt quite a lot from this book, and find James Sherwood to be very knowledgeable on the subject of bespoke London tailors. I'm pleased that he covered Kilgour, Ravi Tailor and Edward Sexton, as well as a number of tailors not usually talked about in the context of Savile Row.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended reading, 21 Feb. 2006
THIS book goes way beyond merely talking about youth fashions: I found it to be a fascinating read, a social history written in the first person from a man who became clothes obsessed from an early age. Semi-biographicall the author talks about his background, his family and how youth culture, and always being seen in the right clothes gave young English kids a creative direction. Something that was uniquely their own. It coves three decades of innovation and ends with the sad truth, that, the latest must have thing is no longer dictated by the kids themselves. Like the Mods and Skinheads of the 60's or the Soul boys of the 70's but by the high street and music industry.
