book review: icons of men’s style

i received my copy of icons of men’s style yesterday and couldn’t be happier.  it’s exactly what i expected/wanted.  it’s broken down into 7 chapters: outerwear, trousers, shoes, underwear, tailoring, shirts & sweaters, and accessories.  each chapter takes a garment in that category, tells the story, and names the icon(s) who made it popular.  below are a few shots of the book.  if you’ve ever looked up to mcqueen, dean, grant or other trailblazers of yesterday, then buy this book or buy it for a friend.  it’s money well spent. 

icons of men’s style

from the description on uncrate, this book takes a look at some of the “most stylish, distinctive men of recent memory,”  but rather than just showcasing old photos, it goes into the history of the items these icons wore.  there’s currently no release date on amazon.com, but you can still pre-order.  i’m doing so after i hit publish.
