Vintage menswear : a collection from the Vintage Showroom
Part of the Pocket Editions series
Curated by connoisseurs of vintage clothing, the Vintage Showroom is a vast collection of rare 20th-century pieces that fashion designers and stylists pay to view, using the cut and detailing of individual garments as inspiration for their own work.
Offering one-of-a-kind access, Vintage Menswear now makes this unique resource available in book form.
Featuring 130 of the most influential examples of 20th-century and earlier European, American and Asian utilitarian tailoring and design, the book is divided into three sections of sportswear, militaria and workwear, covering everything from 1940s flying jackets and polar exploration suits to vintage French denims.
Stunning full-page bleeds and front and back views showcase ground-breaking designs in concept, shape and cut.
