Everything you ever wanted to know about mens clothing and so much more—from the exact hour Nelson lost his right eye to the type of palm needed for a Panama hat, what Cary Grants tailor had to do to his shoulders—and those all-important questions of what to where, when and why, including when to wear a bow tie (surely never is the only answer?). A quirky book full of facts that you never realised you needed to know, including the exact thickness of animal hair used to create must-have fashion items, including suits. Provocative, and controversial at times but always very well dressed.

Men’s fashion, particularly the trends involving undergarments, was once reserved for the elite; today it has become democratised, clear proof of social progress.The aestheticism of the body so highly valued by the Greeks seems to have regained a prominent place in the masculine world. Mirroring the evolution of society’s values, the history of underwear also highlights the continuous, dancing exchange that exists between women’s styles and men’s fashion. Undergarments are concealed, flaunted, stretched or shortened, establishing a game between yesterday’s illicit and today’s chic and thereby denouncing the sense of disgrace that these simple pieces of clothing used to betray. In this work, Shaun Cole endeavours to re-establish for the first time, through well-researched socio-economic analysis, the importance of men’s underwear in the history of costume from ancient times to today. A reflection of technological progress, this study is full of surprises and powerful reflections on man’s relationship with his body.

Fashion for Men

"Fashion for Men" will not only be invaluable to students of costume history and fashion design, but will also appeal to the general reader fascinated by the intricacies of costume and its development.

From medieval times to the present, "Fashion for Men" describes the development of male attire, with the aid of nearly a hundred illustrations. Diana de Marly offers a lively discussion of the male ideal and its relationship to the clothes people wore. What was it that was considered so shocking about the ever-receding short skirts of fourteenth-century fashionable man? What was the significance of the rise -- and later the decline -- of the codpiece, so blatantly drawing attention to what later centuries were generally at pains to hide? The history of men's clothing is set in a wide social context, and the author shows above all that views about "masculinity" are subject to change, and that preoccupation with dress is not exclusively a female preserve. "Fashion for Men" will not only be invaluable to students of costume history and fashion design, but will also appeal to the general reader fascinated by the intricacies of costume and its development.

From choosing the right pair of eyeglasses to properly coordinating a shirt, tie, and pocket square, getting dressed is an art to be mastered. Yet, how many of us just throw on, well, whatever each morning? How many understand the subtleties of selecting the right pair of socks or the most compatible patterns of our various garments-much less the history, imperatives, and importance of our choices? In True Style, acclaimed fashion expert G. Bruce Boyer provides a crisp, indispensable primer for this daily ritual, cataloguing the essential elements of the male wardrobe and showing how best to employ them. In witty, stylish prose, Boyer breezes through classic items and traditions in menswear, detailing the evolution and best uses of fabrics like denim and linen, accoutrements like neckties and eyeglasses, and principles for combining patterns, colors, and textures. He enlightens readers about acceptable circumstances for donning a turtleneck, declaims the evils of wearing dress shoes without socks, and trumpets the virtues of sprezzatura, the artistry of concealing effort beneath a cloak of nonchalance. With a gentle yet firm approach to the rules of dressing and an incredible working knowledge of the different items, styles, and principles of menswear, Boyer provides essential wardrobe guidance for the discriminating gentleman, explaining what true style looks like-and why.

Strouse & Brothers, originating out of Baltimore, published this unique tract on the history of men's fashion in the European world. The work begins with a very brief history of fashion, and then links the Strouse & Brothers firm to that history of high quality fashion. It offers a fascinating look at early forms of advertising in the United States, and of course, fashion and changing tastes. Strouse & Brothers considered itself a purveyor of "High Art fashion." The high quality illustrations included reveal that "High Art fashion" has developed very different meanings over the years. For Strouse & Brothers, it simply meant well-tailored suits paired with fashionable hats in 1910. Strouse & Brothers enjoyed a long history in Baltimore, becoming one of the largest clothiers in the city. It was founded in 1868 by Leopold Strouse, one of six brothers who emigrated from Germany to the United States.

This meticulously choreographed look has a vibrant history; the legacy of Beau Brummell, the original dandy of Regency England, can be traced in the clothing of urban dandies today. Dandy Style celebrates 250 years of male self-expression, investigating the portraiture and wardrobe of the fashionable British man. Combining fashion, art, and photography, the historic and the contemporary, the provocative and the respectable, it considers key themes in the development of male style and identity, including elegance, uniformity, and spectacle. Various types of dandy are represented by iconic figures such as Oscar Wilde, Edward VIII as Prince of Wales, and Gilbert & George. They appear alongside the seminal designs of Vivienne Westwood, Ozwald Boateng, and Alexander McQueen; and portraits by Thomas Gainsborough and David Hockney.

This book looks at underwear in general from 1490, and in some depth over the last 150 years, highlighting women's underwear, which is perhaps the most intriguing, certainly the most variable. Reference to men's and children's is mainly limited to brief notes on specific innovations, particularly those with a bearing on developments in women's underwear. Stockings and tights are only briefly mentioned as they do not quite qualify as under (i.e. hidden) garments. For each of three 50-year periods, from 1840 to 1990, the book looks at the image "outside in"---that is, the fashionable silhouette, and what layers were needed beneath to sustain this; then at the reality, "inside out"---with an analysis of the actual clothes, fabrics, design and decoration: and finally at the context, "round about" which focuses on reminiscences of wearing, and developments in the industry. These last sections also give details bout making, cleaning and mending, together with notes on buying and selling.--Introduction.

Fashion History: A Global View proposes a new perspective on fashion history. Arguing that fashion has occurred in cultures beyond the West throughout history, this groundbreaking book explores the geographic places and historical spaces that have been largely neglected by contemporary fashion studies, bringing them together for the first time. Reversing the dominant narrative that privileges Western Europe in the history of dress, Welters and Lillethun adopt a cross-cultural approach to explore a vast array of cultures around the globe. They explore key issues affecting fashion systems, ranging from innovation, production and consumption to identity formation and the effects of colonization. Case studies include the cross-cultural trade of silk textiles in Central Asia, the indigenous dress of the Americas and of Hawai'i, the cosmetics of the Tang Dynasty in China, and stylistic innovation in sub-Saharan Africa. Examining the new lessons that can be deciphered from archaeological findings and theoretical advancements, the book shows that fashion history should be understood as a global phenomenon, originating well before and beyond the fourteenth century European court, which is continually, and erroneously, cited as fashion's birthplace. Providing a fresh framework for fashion history scholarship, Fashion History: A Global View will inspire inclusive dress narratives for students and scholars of fashion, anthropology, and cultural studies.
