Womenswear progresses in leaps and bounds, fuelled by the readiness of women to wear what may at the time be perceived as the radical or outrageous. Not so with menswear menswear evolves, slowly. But from what? Behind nearly every item in the modern male wardrobe is a first of its kind the definitive item, often designed by a single company or brand for specialist use, on which all subsequent versions have been based (and originals of which are now collector items in the booming vintage market). The T-shirt, for example, may now be an innocuous, everyday item, but was created by American company Hanes for US Navy personnel at the turn of the 20th century and was subsequently adopted by sportsmen and bikers. Other items have been designed for sport, farm work, protection and made their way into everyday usage. "Icons of Men's Style" examines, garment by garment, the most important and famous of these products their provenance and history, the stories of their design, the brand/company that started it all and how the item shaped the way men dress today.

Eine interessante Lektüre, die gezielt mit den Vorurteilen amerikanischen Bad Taste in Sachen Mode aufraeumt.Viele Hintergrundberichte zu Modeklassikern für Herren, vielfach aus Zeiten der Goretexfreien Ära sich ins Hier und Jetzt herübergerettet haben - lesenswert.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An iconic book 28. Juli 2011
Von Trolstaden - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book is a very nice summary of the different parts of all the iconic styles, with a chapter for each major part. It lacks a bit in the accessory department, especially in the watch department. The ratio between text and pictures is just perfect, with a nice balance between details and overview. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to now a bit more about the different parts of men's style.

5.0 von 5 Sternen excellent read 22. Juni 2011
Von Emmet - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I opened this book a few hours ago and haven't put it down since. It contains a rich history of men's fashion staples, from the deck shoe to the biker jacket. Every bit is informative-not just in a sartorial sense, but culturally how the clothing became what it is today. For example, the M-1951 jacket came in olive green and not the typical olive drab, since it was produced post-WW2 and the higher-ups believed that the surplus of olive-drab military color being worn by laborers was devalued. In the following decades, the jacket was worn by the Mod community who embraced the cheap, military surplus jacket to protect their sharp suits as they rode their scooters through the elements.

Explaining the What and Why makes this book a successful compilation of men's fashion iconography.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting but not inspiring 12. November 2011
Von Richard Amos - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I guess I should have read more reviews on this one. I bought it on a whim because Gregory Peck was on the cover and I expected a bunch of cool characters with photos and commentary on what made them style icons. Instead it's a series of fairly obvious and not so fascinating chapters on e.g. the white t-shirt; Ray Bans; the Trench Coat; the Blazer, etc.
Ok if you are studying this stuff in school but not really much more. Some nice photos though

5.0 von 5 Sternen Pimpin' 20. Oktober 2011
Von Dr. Wilson Trivino - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Atlanta, Georgia- All men choose and where clothes but what makes one come across as stylish while other seem like unkempt misfits?
Icons of Men's Style by Josh Sims, the author goes through the essentials of a wardrobe and delves into the history of each piece.
The iconic polo shirt came into the scene in 1927 after polo players adopted it from the heavy shirts that constrained them. Also the most famous iconic logo of all, the alligator, came about from Rene Lacoste who used the symbol to motivate a winning of the French Davis Cup of whose prize was a pair of alligator skin luggage.
As to Khakis, the root of their color and design was in 1845, in India the British used them as a type of camouflage which blended in with mud, the distinct local dust, coffee and even curry; Khaki means dust color in Urdu. This late became popular in the US from the GIs that return home after the war.
Sims writes, "The blouson--also known as the windbreaker, golf jacket, or Harrington--is almost official attire for US Presidents... John Kennedy was a fan, though only while sailing, and Georgia W. Bush liked wearing one while making announcements on the decks of aircraft carriers."
This book is filled with fascinating facts of how the basic styles are timeless and delves back to the story behind the reasons why we wear the things we do. The photographs are rich and bold and the subjects some of the most well known men of our time.
Icons of Men's Style by Josh Sims is a much needed addition to any library and wardrobe.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Truly enjoyable 17. April 2013
Von John_G - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I've read this twice, it's a nice fun read. It lists all the iconic men's styles, such as the peacoat. More importantly, it shows the history of the item, how it was engineered to serve one need but became iconic. For example, the trench coat actually comes from WWI trench warfare.
