This is a surprisingly lovely and informative book on men's fashion. It discusses all sorts of staple wardrobe items, from trench coats to t-shirts to work boots, talks about their origins and how they became the staples that they are today. The photographs and illustrations are pretty, the text is quite thorough. Recommended.
