Everything you ever wanted to know about men’s clothing – and so much more – from the exact hour Nelson lost his right eye to the type of palm needed for a Panama hat, what Cary Grant’s tailor had to do to his shoulders – and those all-important questions of what to where, when and why, including when to wear a bow tie (surely ‘never’ is the only answer?). A quirky book full of facts that you never realised you needed to know, including the exact thickness of animal hair used to create must-have fashion items, including suits. Provocative, and controversial at times – but always very well dressed.
