Simply Extraordinary This must be one of the most extraordinary publications on men’s dress history available even if it only covers the Edwardian period in American. The sheer imaginative depth displayed in the subtle details is quite stunning. The illustrations were intended for use by customers to show to his tailor to draught a pattern off them. As a result, details of construction are shown, usually from front and back.

Some good authentic pictures has a prominent place beside my computer. I am writing about the first decade of the twentieth century. The pictures in this book are an excellent study of not only the clothing of the period but also the mannerisms of the time. The book gives a good idea of the attitudes of men over one hundred years ago.

Pictures only, good reference guide Cons: Except for a short introduction, this book is /entirely/ illustrations. No how-to, no break-downs, no explanations of what each item is. If that’s what you’re searching for, keep looking.It covers 1900-1910, and only high-end men’s fashion. Thus, it is rather short.Pros: It shows several different styles from the period within high-end men’s fashion. As a guide book for how clothing should look as an ensemble, it is perfect.
