This look at male trendsetters of the past century brings together fifty well-known and occasionally surprising figures who have made their mark on the world. What makes a man a fashionisto? Swagger, elegance, daring, perhaps a really well cut suit. The actors, designers, crooners and legends portrayed in this collection are fashion forward men who possess some or all of the aboveand they have it in spades. Fred Astaire and Bryan Ferry, Truman Capote and Che Guevara, George Clooney and Boy George all find a place in this fun and fascinating exploration of what makes a man into an icon. From Oscar Wildes penchant for velvet to Don Johnsons Miami style, the cool aloofness of Johnny Depp and Kurt Cobain, or the characters of Ziggy Stardust and James Bond all are featured in double page spreads with glossy full color pictures and Simone Werles acute observations, anecdotes, and historical insight. As fun as it is informative, this glossy, smart book will attract anyone interested in how the clothes can make the man.
