Modern Menswear by Hywel Davies Davies’s book is on a subject we find critical in men’s style, menswear. Don’t suppress your surprise please.

If your primary domicile for the past decade hasn’t been a cave then you’ve noticed that men’s dress is important. Dynamic, casual, relaxed, sharp – menswear has become a hotbed of disposable income. It’s no longer just a suits and shorts. It’s throwing a sport jacket over cardigan with madras shorts and driving mocs or for this writer a comfortable pair of chinos and a striped polo with sandals. Oh, and doing either without looking like an ass.

Davies has showcased fashion leaders, profiling big names and emerging talent from across the world. Designers featured include Marc Jacobs, Yohji Yamamoto, Vivienne Westwood, and John Galliano. All providing an insight into their design processes and their contribution to the contemporary fashion aesthetic.
