Overview


From the outset, America was settled by individualists and adventurers who severed ties with the old world to find their destiny in an unknown land, a separation that opened the way for change in a less stratified society. To survive the challenges of a new environment, the American man needed garments that were functional and well-designed, qualities that continue to endure at the very heart of American menswear. From Levi Strauss, the Ivy League, and Frank Sinatra to Kanye West, cowboys, and counterculture, this book celebrates quintessentially American fashion themes, designers, and icons emulated around the world. Foreword by Ralph Lauren.
