A comprehensive record of male fashion from the French Revolution to the present day, covering every area of clothing and appearance: day wear, court and evening wear, leisure and sports wear, underwear, knitwear, accessories and hairstyles. The guide contains 1000 colour drawings based on research into paintings, photographs and the garments themselves. Arranged in 25-year sections, the drawings reproduce in detail the lines, weaves and patterns of the original garment, with all details and accessories noted. A reference section contains a time chart showing the development of men's fashions over the past 200 years, biographies of influential couturiers in this field and short histories of influential tailors and outfitters.
