The Englishman's Suit

£25.00

Product description

Some wear/damage to dust-jacket - some spotting to front (please see photo 3) and back cover (please see photo 7) and spine (please see photo 5) of dust-jacket, as well as some rubbing wear to edges (please see photo 6). Otherwise book is in very good condition, clean and tightly-bound with an unclipped dust-jacket.
"Sir Hardy Amies has written both a history and a guide to the most important part of an Englishman's wardrobe. In certain quarters an Englishman is still likely to be judged by his apparel as by anything else; his suit in particular can reveal the wearer as unequivocally as his tongue. Sir Hardy gives the reader a charming and entertaining account of the suit's development from the seventeenth century to the present day. From the arcane mysteries of button placement to the remarkable influence of princes and kings as early trend-setters, the narrative reveals a fascinating motley of curious and frequently amusing facts. The Englishman's Suit will delight any gentleman, and be of help to any would-be gentleman."
