about this item

This fully illustrated book accompanies one ofthe most comprehensive exhibitions dedicatedsolely to three centuries of men's fashion. The fashionable male may be making a comeback, but earlyfashion trends centered around what men--not women--werewearing. This intriguing book traces the history of men's fashionsince the 18th century, when young Englishmen imitated foreigndress and manners after touring the European continent. Thisphenomenon is only one of many explored in sections titled"Revolution/Evolution,""East/West,""Uniformity,""BodyConsciousness," and "The Splendid Man." In addition to num-erous illustrations of extant menswear, the book captures the19th-century dandy, a more restrained brand of expensiveelegance which became the hallmark of Savile Row; the post-WWII mod, who relished the colorful styles of Carnaby Street;and the 21st-century man--ultra-chic in a sleek suit by day,wearing a flowered tuxedo by night. Reigning Men illuminatesconnections between history and high fashion, traces culturalinfluences over the centuries, examines how uniforms haveprofoundly shaped fashionable dress, and reveals that womenaren't the only ones who cinch and pad their bodies. Beautifullyproduced and lavishly illustrated, this eye-opening book willcertainly appeal to men and women alike.
