Essential Reading: American Fashion Menswear by Robert E. Bryan


Just picked up a copy of American Fashion Menswear (Council of fashion designers of America) from Assouline.  They specialize in coffee table type books gorgeously illustrated covering subjects ranging from art, fashion, travel and lifestyles.

In the same series as the bestselling American Fashion and American Fashion Accessories, Assouline and the Council of Fashion Designers of America present American Fashion Menswear, the most authoritative and exciting book to date on the evolution of menswear in our country over the past century.  From Levi Strauss to the Ivy League, lounge suits to Zoot suits, cowboys to counterculture, American Fashion Menswear celebrates the quintessentially American themes that are emulated throughout the world of fashion, as well as the designers and style icons who have made lasting contributions to the way men dress.
This book focuses on evolution of menswear in the last 100 years and focuses on currents that continue to influence the way Americans dress today.  I love “The American Suit” section but I have to admit the Thom Browne style for most part is not a good look!
