The Details - Iconic Men's Accessories

Author(s): Josh Sims

Fashion and Costume

The Details identifies the authentic classics amongst men's accessories and explains how each item has developed. The book tells the stories of their design; the brand, company, or iconic figure that started it all; and how each item has shaped the way men dress today. The leather biker boot, as we know it today, takes its stylistic cues from the toughened boots worn by the loggers and railway engineers of the American industrial revolution. The origins of the ubiquitous baseball cap can be traced back to the New York Knick's team caps of 1849 which were made of straw. From classic diving watches to the simple pocket square, The Details examines the most important of men's accessories and offers a complete guide to choosing your own examples.
