You can dress well without having the knowledgeable history behind each piece. Trust me, I’m one of those guys (humblebrag.) But for anyone on the academic catch-up, this book by Cally Blackman may be required reading over the next month.
Detailing some of the trends and standout pieces that have become classic staples over the years, Blackman brings us through the iconic imagery that men have been wearing to project their image throughout the known world. Think this is too basic for you? Then I challenge you to make a 100 Years of Menswear: Future Edition, for our eyes to consume.
