Book Club: 100 Years of Menswear
I'm excited to get my hands on a copy of Cally Blackman's 100 Years of Menswear when it comes out later this month -- its 347 illustrations apparently include an amazing selection of rock stars, A-listers, artists and men of style. Don't you just love the cover image of David Bowie from the 1970s?
Men's fashion has certainly evolved tremendously, just as women's fashion has over the past century. It's often easily overshadowed, but thoughtful dressing for men is working its way back into popular culture; just look at characters like Chuck Bass on Gossip Girl --his outfits are often the highlight of the show.
For me, nothing says more about a man than his timepiece. Luckily, we've got a huge selection to search on Portero.
