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 above—and 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 Wilde’s penchant for velvet to Don Johnson’s 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 Simon Werle’s 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.
