Review:

This is a great book, and it's a real textbook that doesn't have irrelevant chapters on grooming and styling - it's all about garment design and nothing else, which is great! It's a book for someone who really wants to learn about how to design, rather than someone who just likes looking at fashion. * Christopher New, Senior Lecturer in Menswear, Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design, London, UK * This book is unique in its presentation with the brief summary of historical knowledge and the coverage of the historical and social evolution of menswear and how it influenced women's wear. I can't think of any other books that compete with this book. In all design courses, I would recommend this book as a reference. * Injoo Kim, University of Cincinnati, USA * A particular strength of this book is the coverage of the sumptuary laws. I love that! This is something that is not widely understood. I also like the coverage of military uniforms and the section on Menswear's Influence on Women's Fashion. I think it is a fantastic idea to put a section on undergarments. No one does that. I think this book would be a great book for my class. I would adopt this book and I would make it required. This is a book that covers many aspects of men's clothing and is a 'go-to' for style questions. * Rhonda Gorman, Texas Women's University, USA * The new edition would be included in the required reading list for all students on the menswear and design courses. The book may be included in the recommended reading list for media type courses. * John Lau, Programme Director, Fashion Design and Technology, London College of Fashion, School of Design and Technology, UK * This volume would be a good starting point for doing research on menswear, and faculty may find the lists of firms useful in organizing study tours. Libraries supporting any kind of fashion design or clothing construction curriculum should consider purchasing this work. * N.A. Mackey, Missouri State University, Choice, December 2011 * Extremely good resource. Provides a very good insight into menswear. Most students opt for womenswear and this is encouraging an understanding of the wider options in fashion. * Cheryl Smith, Curriculum Leader and Lecturer in Art and Design, Newcastle-Under-Lyme College, UK * Excellent, great layout, informative and inspiring. * Angela Loftus, BA (Hons) Fashion Course Tutor, Bradford College, UK *
