Last minute gift idea for that fashion-concsious friend of yours? Looking to do some research or just read up on an interesting topic? I've got just the book for you:
100 Years of Menswear by Cally Blackman.
The book comes in a hard or softback and can be picked up on Amazon for $11-$20 depending on which version you buy. In 380 pages, it covers men's fashion from the begining of the 20th century until now.
The book illustrates change sin fashion based on culture, purpose, need, and really anything that played any role in the transformation of style.
It makes for great coffee table literature, and for under $20, you can afford to check it out.
