The book is aimed at the more sartorially inclined reader or just one that is open to the concept and defining of style vs. fashion. Sims more than builds a convincing case utilizing icons of the 20th and 21st century that are rarely associated within the worlds of fashion and style.

Synopsis

A style guide with heft. Men of Style profiles the best-dressed men of recent centuries: from actors to statesman, playboys to painters, the iconic and the more unexpected. Comprising profiles of their colorful, dapper lives, sartorial and personal, explaining too how they have shaped menswear today.

The core focus of the book is not only the story of men's style, but the men who embody it and act as its most inspiring exemplars. A useful for book for students of fashion history, followers of celebrity and stylish men alike.
