Summary
Everything you ever wanted to know about mens clothing and so much more-from the exact hour Nelson lost his right eye to the type of palm needed for a Panama hat, what Cary Grants tailor had to do to his shoulders-and those all-important questions of what to where, when and why, including when to wear a bow tie (surely never is the only answer?). A quirky book full of facts that you never realised you needed to know, including the exact thickness of animal hair used to create must-have fashion items, including suits. Provocative, and controversial at times but always very well dressed.
