Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Overly academic essays on British clothing before, during, and after WWII, and the influence of British cinema on shaping the clothing trends. Sounded like an interesting subject, but it's dull, narrow, and repetitious. The essays are generally psycho-babble that give an academic veneer to the idea that during wartime, both men and women have penises, and post-war, women have to give up their penises and be women again. Silly, unsubstantiated, and seemingly purposely dull in a bid to be taken seriously.
