In American Fashion Menswear, fashion historian Robert E. Bryan travels from Levi’s through Zoot Suits to the present exploring the evolution of American fashion. The topic, undoubtedly, is rich. And, Bryan’s assertion that shifts in fashion are deeply rooted in American history are not unfounded. Additionally, Bryan’s effort celebrates the quintessentially American themes that are emulated in fashion the world over.
The book is a collaborative publication by the Council of Fashion Designers Association and Assouline Books.
