One Hundred Years of Menswear.

“A rich, comprehensive collection of images covering the revolution in menswear over the last 100 years, with text by fashion historian, Cally Blackman.”

…or as I like to put it – “a bloody good read and a hardback must-have for any modern male even remotely interested in fashion”.

One Hundred Years of Menswear by Cally Blackman has been one of my best finds of the year so far, not only is it a great resource book for any fashion student, designer, stylist or writer, it is simply great for pure, unadulterated outfit inspiration. Starting from the year 1900, the book takes us step by step through the different era’s and cultural trends. Packed full with images of vintage adverts, collections, music artists and movie stars and containing very little text (now your ears have pricked up) other than an informative paragraph at the beginning of each new chapter, introducing you to the trend.

If you don’t yet own a copy, you can find yours here.
