Format: Hardcover
This book has all the info about men's fashion that you can't find anyplace else - not on the web, not in other reference books (because they deal with women's fashion), plus lots of trivia that just makes it a fun read.

Read the galleys and I'd buy this just for the entry on "Nudie"--it's a hoot.
