What difference is there between a tail coat and a morning coat? When and where did the habit of wearing a daily hat end? How did sneakers make the leap from sports fields to offices? The answers to these and many other questions can be found in this definitive guide to male elegance, which combines an analysis of the historical evolution of men’s attire with anecdotes and practical information. The elegantly illustrated guide is timeless, going beyond the trends of the moment to make a classic reference guide that is also an enjoyable read, with a prologue by Giorgio Armani himself.
