Summary

Summary

Do you know a Brogue from a Budapest? Or a Homberg from a Borsalino? A British Warm from a Chesterfield? Or which of these are shoes, which are hats, and which are coats? This is a history of classic style for gentlemen. The book covers the entire wardrobe from suits, coats, shirts and shoes to the finer details, from umbrellas to underwear - their history, manufacture, tailoring, materials, patterns and colours. There are summary style charts and warnings of classic faux pas. Also included are trousers, knitwear, socks, hats, handkerchiefs, swimming trunks, bathrobes, leather clothing, and men's jewellery.
