A piece of history
on 6 January 2015
I bought this book originally in the 1960s. This hardback reprint is an excellent piece of work, it really feels like an expensive book. This is the second copy of this reprint I have bought. I gave one away to a friend.
For anyone with half an interest in men's clothing and fashion the book is an invaluable piece of history. Hardy Amies writes with a style of his own.
The predicit9ons that he got wrong are as interesting and humourous as the ones he got right .
