'Men's interest in fashion and the role of fashion in constructing masculine identity have so far not been investigated in depth. The Men's Fashion Reader is an important work exploring all aspects of men and fashion - from design to production, communication and consumption. At last an ideal resource is available to scholars, students and professionals.' Simona Segre Reinach, Iuav University, Venice.

Magazine for the University of Technology, Sydney 'Examining the history, culture and identity of men's fashion, The Men's Fashion Reader is an in-depth work exploring masculinity, the evolution of menswear, the rise of subculture and the era of consumption. An essential introduction for any man looking to explore the business and theory behind men's fashion.'
