Fashion for Men
1957 (original copyright)
Need to get that retro chic look from the late 1950s? This guide has all the details so you can look your very best.
I actually liked looking through this book. The details and the explanations are really interesting. If you have an interest in menswear or in retro fashion, this might be a good choice. I definitely think this has a place in a design or fashion collection. Yes it is dated and not exactly user friendly, but it is detailed and has some decent illustrations. Fit is the major theme of this book. The details are subtle, but let’s be honest, to my untrained eye this book is a costume manual for the film The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit.
I had no idea that men need fashion advice for pajamas or for college.
